New Orleans is the country's No. 2 city for food and drinks, according to Food & Wine's annual Global Tastemakers Awards.

Why it matters: We think New Orleans has the best food, and it's nice when others recognize our excellence.

The big picture: New Orleans was well represented in the magazine's annual awards, with six restaurants, bars and hotels making the cut.

State of play: These are the New Orleans venues that were featured.

  • Top restaurant: Mosquito Supper Club. (Full list)
  • Top bar: Jewel of the South. (Full list)
  • Top hotel: Four Seasons Hotel. (Full list)
  • Top hotel bars: Sazerac Bar at The Roosevelt, Chandelier Bar at Four Seasons and Bar Marilou. (Full list)

How it works: Food & Wine has more than 180 food and travel journalists nominate their favorite restaurants, bars, bakeries, markets, cities, hotels, airports, airlines and cruises.

  • Then, an "expert panel of judges" vote on the best culinary experiences from around the world and rank the winners.
