For Gambit Weekly's summer restaurant guide, we go right for the main ingredients. Our other popular seasonal guides are categorized by type of cuisine (winter), by neighborhood (fall) and by alphabetical listing by restaurant name (spring). By summertime, we've worked up quite an appetite for detailed information about individual dishes -- literally from "alligator to zucchini."
The pages that follow serve up nearly 600 New Orleans-area eateries and some of their most original, taste-tempting creations. Don't forget to consult the directory for information from addresses and phone numbers to hours of operation and price ranges.
