New Orleans Info
We look forward to your visit to New Orleans, and to you dining with us at Porter & Luke’s. New Orleans is a wonderful city, and we’re excited to share it with you. Our restaurant is located in Metairie, which is only a short drive from many of the famous historic sights, popular attractions and much more in New Orleans.

New Orleans has many popular attractions. Here are a few we recommend:
- Cruising the Mississippi River aboard Steamboat Natchez while listening to traditional New Orleans jazz and sipping on a mint julep.
- Strolling around Jackson Square. This is where you'll be able to browse artwork from local artists, enjoy plenty of street performers, and really see what New Orleans is all about.
- Visiting the Audubon Zoo to see and learn about exotic animals. When you're done, take a walk through beautiful Audubon Park, which is right across the street.
- Viewing our world-class Aquarium of the Americas.
New Orleans is known around the world for its night life. The Big Easy is the home of jazz, the birthplace of the Sazerac, and always has what seems like a never ending stream of festive celebrations.
