I realized a few trips ago that I tend to have a food "theme" to each trip to New Orleans. Since I'll be arriving on a Monday later this month, it seems natural for red beans and rice to be the featured food.
With that in mind, where are the best plates of red beans and rice to be found? My personal tastes run more toward neighborhood eateries. I'll be staying in the upper Quarter but without a car, so places in the Quarter or within easy walking distance of the streetcar lines are ideal.
