Photos: New Orleans Restaurants Opening Their Doors on the First Day of Phase 1

Yesterday, May 16, was the first official day New Orleans non-essential businesses could re-open their doors. It’s a day we’ve been patiently waiting for almost two months now. Hundreds of employees across the city returned to work, while residents started to creep out their houses to revisit places they once frequented often. 

From the CBD to Mid-City, and the French Quarter, there were signs of life everywhere. Now more than ever NOLA businesses, especially restaurants, need your support. We’re a city dominated by neighborhood venues, so make sure you visit one or two this upcoming week.
