- Hadi Ktiri, Napkin Local
Looking for some French Quarter eating and drinking advice from a local? Hadi Ktiri performs that service in his role as bartender at Arnaud's French 75, but he also does so virtually on his blog Napkin Local (napkinlocal.blogspot.com). Just as he would behind the bar, Ktiri writes down his picks on a napkin, then photographs it and uploads it to his blog.
"Great Places for Jazz," "Best Seafood in the Quarter" and "Where the Bartenders and Servers Eat Before Work" are among his latest recommended lists. Ktiri also takes requests, so if you have any questions about going out in the Vieux Carre, drop him a note on the blog. — KEVIN ALLMAN
