Defender Picks


Scent of the Tent

Haydels, Voleo's Talk Food at FQF

French Quarter Festival delivers more than an earful of local music. The four day fest also offers a mouthful of food tasting opportunities from over 60 vendors at eight locations throughout the Vieux Carré. NoDef spoke with veteran Haydel’s Bakery about their experience at the festival, as well as Voleo’s Seafood Restaurant, a newcomer this year.  

NoDef Hosts Public King Cake Quest at the Ogden

It’s called Fat Tuesday for a reason. Mardi Gras revelers do their fair share of imbibing, but New Orleanians don’t need an excuse to drink. The true spirit of the season is in the food, and there’s no better way to celebrate than a king cake party. NOLA Defender is taking another King Cake Quest this year to find the best Carnival confection in town, and we’re inviting you to the Ogden Museum of Southern Art to help us pick the winners.
