    Eating in New Orleans contains a huge paradox: The best food in the world can be found here, however almost none of it can be obtained in the French Quarter, and unfortunately most tourists never leave the Quarter. The restaurants in the Quarter tend to be tourist traps (although not all.) Spend a buck and hop on the green streetcar and head Uptown and you'll get incredible food.

    OMG! I love that city! Eat and drink to your heart's content! Have fun! Check out the French Quarter, ride the streetcar, check out the Garden District! If you can't have a good time in NOLA you probably just can't have fun. Haha.

    Bypass the overly-touristy French Quarter and explore the historic home district adjacent to the quarter called "Marigny"; the first suburb of the original city.

    This is where the gay residents of the city live.

    Late 19th century houses, reasonably priced, excellent restaurants, coffee shops, gay/gay friendly bars and music outlets, a clothing optional country club with a heated pool and hot tub.

    Just slowly stroll thru the area and at least one gay guy will smile and you!

    So you're saying if I want some good gay bars, go to Marginy?

    I went to a few gay clubs/bars in the French Quarter last night with some buddies (most of them were straight!). They were decent, I suppose. I managed to have some fun with a male stripper at The Oz.

    But, if Marginy is better for LGBT fun, I'll make sure to go there.

    Marigny-Bywater is the residential gayborhood that many of the French Quarter service industries workers live in. "Da quatta" is where tourists and horny , confused suburban husbands troll in.

    It's kinda silly to limit yourself to gay bars in a town like New Orleans. Pretty much ALL the bars are gay friendly and the hottest guys don't even go to the gay bars from my experience. It's pretty safe to just start talking to any guy you find attractive here.

    There is at least one good dining experience to be had in the French Quarter if you are willing to spend the money. It was, by far, the nicest experience in the French Quarter from my time spent working and living in New Orleans. Due to some connections I made while working down there, I was able to meet the chefs and tour the dining rooms and kitchen.

    Other than the above, great food is found outside of the French Quarter, usually on the side streets off of the main streets.
