New Orleans, Louisiana

A reader and his wife are in New Orleans for a medical conference this week, and writes:

This morning, our first morning here, we walked / wheelchaired a couple blocks to John Besh’s Willa Jean (thanks for recommending his restaurants!). I had the chicken and biscuit with Tabasco honey; my wife had the Willa Jean breakfast, which included the best cheesy grits I’ve ever tasted – light and fluffy, and without so much cheese as to overwhelm the flavor of the grits (of course I am a northerner, so take this with a grain of salt).

Hard to go wrong with a John Besh restaurant. Hey, go to Domenica and order the fried kale with Parmigiano, and then either the campanelle or tagliatelle. Hell, order everything!
