Fiorellas Fabulous Fried Chicken

If you are in New Orleans and you want to try a local favorite then this article “Fiorellas Fabulous Fried Chicken” looks at a great choice. There are additional links below with other great food choices when you are in New Orleans.

People come to New Orleans for all kinds of reasons and for some that reason is food.  If you love food there are few places better than N’awlins to indulge that passion. I always get the question, “Where can I get good food in New Orleans?”  Now really, how am I supposed to answer that?  Just about anywhere you turn are some really great places, but if you are looking for the best fried chicken in the Big Easy it has got to be Fiorella’s. Hands down.  If you don’t believe me just ask Southern Living Magazine.

Fiorella’s is located across from the New Orleans French Market at 45 French Market Place, but also has an entrance on Decatur St.  The menu is quite extensive and includes some traditional N’awlins fare like over stuffed po’boys and thick, spicy gumbo. It even stretches to things like Liver and Onions, pastas and fried pickles to name but a few.  If you don’t feel like getting out, no problem, Fiorella’s delivers in the French Quarter. You really should make the effort to dine in though; the experience is as enjoyable as the chicken and the tab is easy on the wallet .

My suggestion is find a seat and order a big frosted goblet of beer and a plateful of piping hot, crispy fried chicken and prepare to be amazed by this kickin’ chicken.  Just another little tip, let the pieces of the crispy golden brown skin crumble into the bowl of warm home-made mashed potatoes covered in brown gravy.  Yum.  Are you hungry yet?  Fiorella’s is a fun, casual place with the feel of being at your Mom’s for a big family meal.  Don’t be surprised if you are carrying on a conversation with the whole dining room between mouth watering bites.

This is a favorite hangout for locals, and you never know who might stop in. Fortunate are the New Orleans visitors who find out about Fiorella’s fabulous fried chicken before they leave town.  You can bet it will be one of their first stops on the next trip.  Steaming hot from the first piece to the last this chicken is worth a return trip all by itself. We are talking a whole new degree of finger-licking!

What is cheap and fun to do in New Orleans?

Me and my boyfriend are taking a senior trip, and are still only considering New Orleans. We’re worried it won’t be in our price range ($300 ish). Are there any fun, romantic, scary, gorgeous spots? I’m big on haunted towns, and i’ve heard there are some attractions. Romantic, well i’m sure that explains itself: nice sunset locations, clean cheap hotels… Fun, festivals? I would even enjoy old plantation houses and pretty architecture. I have gone to websites, but never really find anything about prices.

Well $300 isn’t much anywhere, but if you are looking for some fun things to do on a budget try: The French Quarter, the Audubon zoo, Audubon Park, the Aquarium of the Americas, The River Walk, any historic tours, the Lakefront, Streetcars, City Park, Art Museum, Museums, sightseeing, and alot more than I can list.
I don’t know about cheap hotels, area is major concern; sure you can get a cheap place but it may be in a bad neighborhood or on the wrong side of town. As for Festivals, Louisiana is full of them; if you can think it they have it, just pay attention to ads and local listings.

Just be careful in some areas, it can get pretty rough in some parts. I think you should set you’re price range a little higher, because you have to consider Parking, Food, and Hotel fees as well.

Has anyone ever driven from New York to New Orleans?

We are planning a road trip to New Orleans for Mardi Gras in Feb 2010… I am looking for some information on the route down, meaning attractions, sights etc… I’ve never driven down that way before and am wondering if there is anything worth stopping for on the way down??

I have not driven between NY and NO, but have driven from New Orleans to North Carolina (most of the way). The most direct route from NY is via Harrisburg, Knoxville, and Birmingham. A more interesting route would probably be via Washington DC, Charleston, Savannah, Jacksonville, and Pensacola/Mobile – but it would also be a longer trip (though only about 250 miles more.).

All of the states and cities have tourism websites.

Realize that traffic and parking are the absolute number one problem in New Orleans during Carnival. Don’t try to park on the street – it’s a recipe for being towed away by the City. If your hotel is in the French Quarter most of the FQ becomes a pedestrian mall starting the Thursday before Mardi Gras Day. Ask your hotel how to get your car into the "no vehicles" area, and remember the nighttime crowds may be very thick.

Go to these sites for info about Carnival in New Orleans, and the FAQ sections may be very useful:
