"Real" Bagels Rise in Garden District
By Ryan Sparks
Recently it was announced that the burger market in New Orleans has been “saturated,” what with the recent openings of several patty-centric restaurants, but for purists and aficionados of another “B” food, the uptick may just be beginning. Traditionally people from the south aren't as passionate about their bagels as they are about their biscuits, croissants, or cornbread, but there are plenty of New Orleanians who turn to this sturdy staple as the basis of their breakfast. We have tasted some fine underground bagels, but for the most part, purists grumble about an offering that is little more than “hard buns with rolls.”

Top 11 Visual Artists in 2011
The visual arts continued their resurgence in 2010. Events such as Prospect 1.5, PhotoNOLA, and the suddenly hot monthly art walks have propelled those putting brush to canvas to a stature equal to those putting brushes to skin... feet to canvas. Right now, we are seeing incredible art coming out of this city; the works span all mediums, and convey themes still tinged by the Storm, but no longer pigeonholed by our dark days.
