Mid City is home to many gems serving the best local eats. For a great taste of Louisiana, locals and visitors swear by Bellue's Fine Cajun Cuisine. Recommendations include a Cajun gumbo served over rice, a dish known as crawfish etouffee and the infamous habanero chicken fingers.

When you're in the mood for seafood, just head down the main strip, Plank Road, to Tony's Seafood. This local joint doubles as a meat market and a restaurant. Be warned, Tony's happens to get so busy it requires local law enforcement to direct traffic in and out of its parking lot. When it finally comes time to order, start with the fresh fried catfish and sides.

For a local night out, you're best to head south of the neighborhood where there are many more bars and clubs. When looking for a party, head down Government Street to Radio Bar.

Expect large crowds and $9 cocktails.

If you love live music and fine wines, check out Boudreaux & Thibodeaux. This restaurant and bar sits south of Mid City, and drivers can easily reach it by cab or car via Interstate-110. For a treat found few other places, order the flaming Dr. Pepper. Lucky patrons get a fiery show of burning alcohol and corn syrup right next to their tables.
