French Market

Cajun Café, anyone? Find this charming restaurant among the many cafes, bars and food stalls in New Orleans’ French Market. Spanning 6 blocks in the city’s French Quarter, this stretch of town is not only home to savory Creole and Cajun dishes, but also plenty of history. The area was founded in 1791 as a Native American trading post; it endures as one of the oldest markets of its kind anywhere in the US.
