Where to Eat and Drink in Historic Treme - [Eater New Orleans - All]

Exploring America’s oldest African-American neighborhood

Considered the oldest African-American neighborhood in America, Treme is the epicenter of New Orleans’ culture, a rich repository of the music, food, history, and celebrations that define this city. Geographically, Treme is the swath of land across from the French Quarter between North Rampart and North Broad and from Canal Street to St. Bernard Avenue. Historically, the neighborhood is known as the first in which free persons of color were able to acquire and own property consistently during an era when America was still entrenched in slavery.

Visit the Backstreet Cultural Museum to be awed by its collection of Mardi Gras Indian suits and pay your respects to Treme’s unmatched musical history at the small but mighty Petit Jazz Museum and memorial to Louis Armstrong Armstrong Park. When you’re hungry, thirsty, and in need of good music, here are some places where you’ll be welcomed, where home cooking and haute cuisine both hold sway.
