An Eater’s Guide to Dining in the Irish Channel - [Eater New Orleans - All]


Po-boys, fish markets, and brunch

At one point, New Orleans had the largest Irish population in the South and many of those immigrants settled in the area of New Orleans called the Irish Channel. Generally, the borders of the neighborhood are accepted to be Magazine Street to the north, Jackson Avenue to the east, the Mississippi River to the south, and Toledano Street to the west.

Today, the area is dotted with restaurants, bars, and coffee shops. It’s also known for a large St. Patrick’s Day parade and block party, complete with floats and riders throwing cabbages, potatoes, and Irish Spring soap to revelers.

Most of the food scene takes place on Magazine Street, but there are a few players off the beaten path that are well worth seeking out. And while our list includes a variety of restaurants, it’s worth mentioning that the Irish Channel also has a lot of breakfast and brunch spots - Slim Goodie’s, Atchafalaya, Ruby Slipper, Another Broken Egg, and more could fill a list of their own.
