1st Ward Saints Mask
The 1st Ward is not, as you might expect, the oldest section of New Orleans. But, this area of Uptown New Orleans was urbanized in the early 19th century. This ward is flanked by the Mississippi River on the southern border, and Claiborne Avenue to the north. While this one of New Orleans’ geographically smaller wards, it houses restaurants that serve up some seriously delicious cuisine.
If Mexican is more your forte, Casa Borrega cannot be missed (pictured above). The restaurant itself is housed in an 1892 Greek revival home completely renovated with recycled materials. Patrons rave about the atmosphere and the delicious Pico de Gallo.
