September is almost here, but our summer is New Orleans always lasts a little bit longer. And where else can you find a spot to cool off than in one of our city’s many great restaurants? The monthlong celebration of COOLinary may be over (though technically you still have today to enjoy!), but as we look back on some of these decadent dishes, we can’t help but be excited for our next dining extravaganza: We Live to Eat Restaurant Week. This culinary event runs from Sept. 14-20 and offers many two-course lunches or three-course dinners at restaurants like Balise, Cafe Degas, Johnny Sanchez, Meauxbar, American Sector, Grand Isle, and Pizza Domenica to name a few (many of which also participated in COOLinary). Check out a few of our favorite shots from COOLinary, and make your reservation early for the week of Sept. 14: in this city, we don’t eat to live, we live to eat.
