Things to do in New Orleans: Bywater & Marigny Edition
Welcome to life outside of the French Quarter and we hope your experience will now be bro-free. Now that you have taken a step in the right direction, here are some places to explore.
1. It’s New Orleans, you gotta start with the food.
One of the best things about the Bywater is how budget-friendly the food is. The quality of food at St Roche Market doesn’t compare to some of the amazing restaurants in the area but it gets an A for variety and affordability. Heading in further east? One of the cities most renowned places to get a po-boy is at Gene’s Po-boys but my personal favorite is referred to most as the “Orange store”. The actual name is the North Rampart Food Store which to my delight and detriment was just around the corner from the hostel I worked at. I highly recommend calling ahead. This place gets packed and closing times can vary. Bonus: There is a Banksy across the street that I grew to cherish.
