America has fantastic regional cuisine from sea to shining sea, but for our money, nothing quite beats the Big Easy for big flavor. This meal hits all the great N'awlins culinary notes, from fish blackened to just the perfect amount of char and spice to a risotto that pays homage to one of the great dishes of NOLA, jambalaya. And don't sleep on the remoulade, offering a zesty addition that brings the whole meal together. All that's missing is the oysters and the jumbo.
