By Gardner Realtors | August 20, 2020

It’s hot. It rains. And football is still a month away. That’s August in a nutshell in New Orleans. But, as you know, even during these crazy times, there’s rarely a dull moment in this town. This month, treat your taste buds and wallets as you take part in the celebration of one of America’s most delicious cities during Coolinary New Orleans 2020!


Napoleon House




We all know what a great food city New Orleans is. Don’t take our word for it. Listen to the culinary experts at the Washington Post, The Travel Channel, Food and Wine, etc. That is a reason to celebrate. So, restaurants all over town will be offering two-or three-course lunch menus for $20 or less and three-course dinner menus at $39 or less. Some restaurants are even offering weekend brunch deals because we all love brunch. So if you’ve been saving up for that nice dinner, you may be able to do it for much less now! Plus, this year, you can experience COOLinary on the go with takeout and delivery options.
