Jazz Fest is so close you can smell it. Those who flock to the festival are just days away from one of the most popular music events in the country and some of the best restaurants in the Big Easy.
In honor of the seven days of Jazz Fest, here’s our guide to seven sensational restaurants based on seven different types of Jazz Fest attendees. While these fun locations all serve alcohol, remember to always designate a driver or call a cab!
1. Best Place for Jazz Fest Marathoners
Theo’s Neighborhood Pizza - You know who you are. You’ve got your “Brass Pass” permanently affixed around your neck, all your Jazz Fest t-shirts picked out for the next two weeks, a Costco-sized bottle of sunscreen and more ponchos than you can count. You know Jazz Fest is a marathon and now there’s only one thing left to do: carbo-load.
Any championship marathon runner will tell you that the key to sustained energy is carb intake. What better place to get your fix than Theo’s? Voted “Best Pizza Restaurant” in Gambit’s 2014 Best of New Orleans poll, Theo’s offers 20 specialty pies, including eight veggie options. If that doesn’t do it for you, you can build your own pizza. They also have weekly beer specials (more carbs! Yum!) to wash it all down. If you’re going the distance, Theo’s could save your life.
