As locals in the city of New Orleans, a city whose food is as important to its local culture as Jazz or the French Quarter, the New Orleans Film Society feels that our food establishments and restaurants bring our community together. (And Homer Simpson agrees!)

The following list comprises some of the amazing restaurants, delis, and grocers that have supported New Orleans Film Society’s events and our audiences – a favor we would like to return. These institutions are a representation of the amazing and unique culture of New Orleans and the city’s commitment to the arts and storytelling.

These are very uncertain times for many, and the restaurant industry is no exception. New Orleans prides itself on its unique and robust restaurant industry that gives back to the city in many ways, and their industry is struggling more than most. While not all will be financially able, we ask that those who are able and willing to help support local restaurants should contribute by either ordering pickup, getting delivery, or buying gift cards for future use.

These restaurants are mostly staffed by essential workers who are in dire need of our support, and we hope to be able to give back in a time when it is easy to feel alone.
