Sofia Coppola Shares Her NOLA Faves

Initially turned off by Bourbon Street tourist traps, the Oscar-winning screenwriter, director, and actress (folks, forgive her for The Godfather III) fell in love after spending two months living in NOLA while working on her newest film The Beguiled. During her time in Hollywood South, she developed a list of her favorite spots around town, which she kindly shared Conde Nast Traveler.
