What is your favorite part of living in New Orleans?
My favorite thing about living in New Orleans is definitely the food! While most people first think about gumbo, jambalaya, and beignets when they think about New Orleans food, our restaurant scene is so much more diverse than that! I love finding new restaurants and foods around the city and it has been a delicious way to explore New Orleans.
