It's not Bourbon.

The last time we went to New Orleans (admittedly the first for me) Magazine street was our go to for food. I lasted a whole of 2 minutes on Bourbon Street before I was feed up with the crowd and smell. I think we hit half of this list -- all very good, but no mention of Slim Goodies? It's just past the Bulldog, in a rundown house, with a great menu for breakfast/brunch.

My personal Favorite is DRAGO'S GRILLED OYSTERS with a cool glass of Chardonnay served with Fresh French Bread for DIPPING....my mouth is watering.....

I second Drago's grilled oysters! It's a big, noisy, nondescript place, but I'd eat those oysters every day if I could.

That King Cake looks amazing. Does Food52 have a recipe?

Try some of the ones listed on the local newspaper’s web site: https://www.nola.com/food/index.ssf/2018/02/how_to_make_king_cake_new_orle.html. Just don’t do it til king cake season (between 12th night and Mardi Gras). There was one on here, but it wasn’t particularly authentic, if I recall correctly.

One time I walked on Magazine Street for what felt like hours in the July New Orleans heat. Luckily there were enough shops to pop into to cool off along the way. I still loved it though!!!
