Thanks to Ian McNulty for joining me on this episode. It was so great to hear his take on the New Orleans food scene. I expect it will not be his last appearance on Beyond Bourbon St, at least not if I get a vote 😉

New Orleans is so much more than the Bourbon Street scenes you may have seen–– it’s a 300-year-old city made up of vibrant neighborhoods, diverse populations, and traditions layered upon each other.
