Meals in New Orleans are rarely a one-napkin affair, and the Shrimp Po' Boy ($10) at Domilise'sis no exception. When they serve up your order, the guys at the counter hand over a small stack of paper towelettes, and with a sandwich this chock-full of juicy fried shrimp, fully dressed, you'll need 'em.

Ah, New Orleans. It's safe to say that no U.S. city—at the very least, of its size—crams in quite so much deliciousness. From boiled crawfish at seafood shacks to oysters on the half-shell in jacket-required dining rooms, from adventurous chefs to century-old sandwich establishments, eating in New Orleans is an unparalleled delight. And if there's a bit of guilt that accompanies all that butter and roux, it should be assuaged by the knowledge that eating in New Orleans these days is essentially an act of civic service.
