Despite a spate of closures this summer, the New Orleans restaurant scene still has plenty of new names popping up, including five in the CBD.

Driving the news: The New Orleans Saints return to the Caesars Superdome for the regular season on Sunday, so now's a good opportunity to check out these five new spots that are within walking distance for game day.

🍽️ District All Day Delicious

The LGD donuts and sliders joint got a sibling in the CBD.

Distance: 0.4 miles, or about a 10-minute walk.

🍽️ Brewery Saint X

Gameday-ready shareables, burgers and beer.

Distance: 0.4 miles, or about a 10-minute walk.

🍽️ Dahla

Spicy and freshly flavored Thai from the same team behind the former Thai Ocha.

Distance: 0.4 miles, or about a 10-minute walk.

🍽️ Devil Moon Barbecue

Sandwiches and big platters of barbecue.

Distance: 0.4 miles, or about a 10-minute walk.


An Indian pop-up turned full-time from chefs Sarthak Samantray, Aman Kota and Sachin Darade at 301 St. Charles Ave.

Distance: 0.8 miles, or about an 18-minute walk.

And one more for good measure: Mister Oso is due to open in the former Barcadia space this month. The Latin-inspired menu comes from chef Blake Edmunds, and it'll arrive as a third outpost for the original Denver restaurant.

Editor's note: This story has been corrected to reflect that the new Mister Oso restaurant will be its third outpost, not its second. This story has also been updated to include District All Day, after Big Little Kitchen suddenly closed.
