The Hit ListNew Orleans

Where to Eat in December: Galatoire’s, Dakar NOLA, Bar Marilou, and More


December has arrived. And with it comes weeks on weeks of doing what New Orleans does best: festivities.

Meals this month have a kind of sacred ritual to them, whether you’re dining in or out. Any meal at any restaurant is a celebration this time of year. As it should be.

Go big and classic at Galatoire’s. Go big and untraditional — unless you happen to be Senegalese — at the brand-new Dakar NOLA. Go intimate and breezy at the new brunch venue Scrambled.

Just go, already, and let the Resy Hit List light the way.
