New Orleans’s Best Old School Burgers - [Eater New Orleans - All]


A cheeseburger with two patties is topped with cheese, pickles, ketchup, and mustard, served with fries A Company Burger double | Josh Brasted/Eater NOLA

A classic is a classic for a reason

What defines a kick ass burger? For starters, it’s balance in a bun, just the right combo of toppings, sauce and juicy meat, all working in harmony to deliver a perfect version of one of America’s most iconic dishes.

Good news is, that when it comes to burgers, New Orleans has a lot to offer. From steakhouse blended burgers to chef-driven hamburger joints to a plethora of iconic greasy spoons and neighborhood spots, this town serves up a mean patty.

Now, Eater knows that there are fancy burgers out there, riffing on everything from barbecue to banh mi. That isn’t what this list is about. Instead, all American straight ahead burgers lead this charge, a cross section of some of the best old school beefy burgers that the city’s grills have to offer.

New Orleans’ 5 most underrated sites, according to two architecture professors - [Curbed New Orleans - All]


Via Shutterstock

They literally wrote the book about it

Shotgun homes, Creole cottages, and center halls are a few iconic house types that spring to mind when one thinks of New Orleans. However, there’s a lot more to the city’s architecture than these 19th-century buildings. And that diversity is exactly what Karen Kingsley and Lake Douglas highlight in their book, Buildings of New Orleans (University of Virginia Press).

“We didn’t want to focus just on the Garden District and the Vieux Carre, but the totality of the city, so that you understand its fullness,” said Kingsley, professor emerita of architecture at Tulane University.

Arranged by neighborhood, the 336-page paperback is compact and portable, considering the dense amount of information it contains. Though the book’s scholarship is heavily vetted and peer-reviewed, its content is entertaining to laymen — and offers them a deeper understanding of their lived environment.

“I think it’s important for people to know the history and context in the community in which they live,” said Douglas, associate dean and professor of landscape architecture at Louisiana State University.

Read on for a tour of New Orleans’ most significant — yet under-appreciated — buildings across five neighborhoods.

12 things you need to know about renting in New Orleans - [Curbed New Orleans - All]


Tall skyscrapers loom behind smaller, older buildings and the sky is a sunset A luxury penthouse apartment or former slave quarters can all be had in New Orleans. | Via Shutterstock

Editor’s note: This story was published in 2015. It has been updated to reflect the latest information.

Whether it’s a crazy landlord, multiple flooding incidents, or a traumatic encounter with the incongruously named palmetto bug, almost every New Orleans renter has a nightmare to share. While it's hard to say how horrors like those could have been prevented (crazy landlords, especially, always seem cool at first) there are some things you should know before renting that can help protect you in the long-run. Below are 12 things you should know about renting in New Orleans, from Louisiana laws to good ol' common sense.

  1. Word of mouth is often your best bet when it comes to finding an apartment. The best deals tend not to surface on Craigslist or Facebook Marketplace. So if you’re moving here from across the country, mobilize what network you have—coworkers, friends and family, that friendly bartender at Molly’s—to snag a sweet place. If that doesn’t work, there’s always the time-tested method of beating the pavement. Plenty of old-school New Orleans landlords stick a “For Rent” sign in the window and call it a day.

2. URLTA Protections (or Lack Thereof). Louisiana has not adopted the Uniform Residential Landlord-Tennant Act, which was created as model legislation by the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws in 1972. This means that tenants have less leverage in Louisiana when it comes to landlord dealings. A bill aimed at strengthening the rights of tenants was proposed in 2014, but nothing came of it.

3. Evictions. In Louisiana, if you are a month-to-month tenant your landlord can evict you for no reason, but he or she has to give you 10 days notice. If you break your lease terms, like by not paying rent, your landlord only has to give you a five-day notice to move out.

4. What happens if my apartment is damaged in a flood, storm or fire? This is especially pertinent in New Orleans, which is susceptible to hurricanes and flooding. If your property is damaged because of any of those things you are not responsible, and you have the right to terminate your lease (if you're responsible for the flood or fire then you're on your own). However, you are responsible for any of your stuff that's damaged. Which brings us to our next point ...

5. Get renters insurance! Seriously. New Orleans is a high-crime city that's also prone to natural disasters. And because many rentals are in very old buildings, there can be electrical fires. If you have valuable possessions, protect them.

6. Bugs and pests. Another common problem in our tropical city is the ubiquity of bugs and other critters. When you move in, inspect your property thoroughly and, besides taking note of any flaws in the property that could be problematic, take note if there's a cockroach or any other kind of infestation. At that point your landlord might be able to take care of it, but once you're in there for awhile, a bug problem might be due to lack of cleanliness and therefore your fault. If you have termites, that's definitely the property owner's responsibility.

7. Lead-based paint. Per the Residential Lead-Based Paint Hazard Reduction Act of 1992, your landlord must provide you with the EPA-approved "Protect Your Family From Lead In Your Home" pamphlet, provide any records and reports on lead-based paint and/or lead-based paint hazards which are available, and provide an attachment to the lease (or language inserted in the lease itself) which includes a Lead Warning Statement and confirms that landlord has complied with all notification requirements.

8. Repairs. Louisiana law says landlords are required to make necessary repairs (structural repairs, heating, plumbing, etc.). If your landlord neglects to make these necessary repairs, you may be able to cancel the lease (but talk to a lawyer before withholding rent). You can do the repairs yourself and get reimbursed, as long as you can prove the repair was necessary, your landlord failed to act in a reasonable amount of time, and the cost of the repair was not exorbitant.

9. Bad neighbors? If your neighbor is not one of your landlord's tenants, it's not their problem. If he or she is, and they are doing something that interferes with your "peaceful possession" of the property (like having a dog that barks all night, all-night ragers, selling drugs or operating an illegal short-term rental), then your landlord has a duty to do something about it. (Does having a batshit landlady count as violation your peaceful occupation?)

10. Speaking of short-term rentals (STRs), it’s legal for you to Airbnb a spare bedroom provided that your neighborhood is zoned for STRs (check here—STRs are outlawed in the Garden District and most of the French Quarter) and that you procure written permission from your landlord. This note must be attached to your STR license application. Alternately, if you suspect people in your building of operating an illegal STR, you can report them here.

11. Security deposits. In Louisiana, your landlord must return your security deposit within a month of you moving out unless you damaged the property beyond "normal wear and tear." Some examples of normal wear and tear include a worn carpet, flooring, walls that have small dings in them, or small holes in screens. Not normal wear and tear? Broken windows, holes in walls, leaving trash in your apartment and in general, leaving the place super gross.

12. One final fact. If either you or your landlord dies, that does not dissolve the lease agreement. You or your landlord's heirs are still bound by the agreement.

If you are being discriminated against when it comes to housing, call the Louisiana Attorney General's Fair Housing Hotline: 1-800-273-5718.

Highs back in the mid 90s [ Local Stories]

It's still Summer, and it's feeling every bit of it! Fall arrives Monday, September 23. I can't wait. Our weather will depend on where Potential Tropical Cyclone 9 goes. Right now it's forecast to move over the NW Bahamas and then along or possibly onshore along the East Coast of Florida, then along the Coast of Georgia, SC and NC. A strong upper high would build across the Central United States, which means hot weather for us next week!

Record Heat again Friday [ Local Stories]

The heat goes on. Record high today at the Airport. The high was 96. The old record was 94 set in 2010. Record high Friday is 95, and we will likely hit it. Hot weather is forecast into next week. The weather will of course depend on the future track of Potential Tropical Cyclone 9. There is uncertainty in the forecast track. Should it move as is now forecast, we would stay on the west side of the system. That means hot dry weather. The potential for more record breaking high temps next week with a slight rain chance.

Better rain chance this weekend [ Local Stories]

This is the peak of Hurricane Season. Gabrielle should lose tropical characteristics Tuesday morning. Right now it has 50 mph winds and it's moving NE 24 mph in the North Atlantic. We are watching three other areas with a low chance of tropical development. One is North of Hispaniola and will move towards Florida into the Gulf. Conditions may become more favorable for development over time, but more likely will increase our rain chances for the weekend. Something to monitor. 30% chance tropical development for a tropical wave well east of the Lesser Antilles. More interested in a tropical wave off the coast of Africa. Low chance development in 5 days...20% chance. Going out in time this is the one that models pick up on, and develop near the Leeward Islands and possibly into the Bahamas. Next name up is Humberto.
