Mulate’s, right across from the Convention Center, is popular with visitors. The food is okay by New Orleans standards but Mulate’s is one of the few places where you can see live Cajun music and dancing while you eat. That alone makes it well worth a visit and makes for long lines on the weekends. Mulate's is one of the best New Orleans restaurants to fully experience Louisiana Cajun. When it comes time to eat, the menu features a large selection of New Orleans favorites including fried seafood, grilled alligator, seafood gumbo, red beans and rice, crawfish etouffee, barbecue shrimp, frog legs and shrimp remoulade. The live music and dancing starts every night at 7pm. If you don't know how to two-step, don't be shy, there's a quick dance lesson on some nights (dates vary, so call ahead to confirm when lessons are being offered) and always someone willing to show you how to dance to the Cajun beats.
