The magic of New Orleans is more than the romance – the mornings in the Quarter and afternoons in the Garden District. Rebirth at the Maple Leaf and John Boutte at dba. And the wonderfully rich culinary heritage of Creole, Cajun and Southern cuisines. But to know New Orleans, one must also know its complicated wounds. The forgotten neighborhoods. Its swollen prisons. The long disparity of race and class. The truest, and most beautiful, NOLA story embraces the whole story, shining a light on the city’s blessings and curses.
