Some may eat to live, but it’s the total opposite in New Orleans. That’s why it’s no surprise that local restaurant, GW Fins, was named among the best in the country, according to Trip Advisor.

GW Fins, located in the French Quarter, was awarded No. 3 on the list of restaurants known for impeccable food and service. The honor is part of Trip Advisor’s annual Travelers’ Choice Awards for Restaurants.
