Located inside the high-end Ace Hotel, Josephine Estelle brings a taste of Italy to the city while staying true to the cuisine of Southern America.

The rustic décor, farmhouse art and mounted hunting trophies inside Toups Meatery don't provide many clues as to what the restaurant serves. One look at the menu, however, and it's obvious that a Cajun paradise awaits. Smoked salmon melts, hot fried quail, venison and the buttermilk fried chicken sandwich featuring grilled ham are just a few of the delicious options. Not only do the owners have NOLA roots going back centuries, but Isaac was even on Top Chef. It’s no surprise they have one of the best fried chicken offerings in New Orleans!

Those who get a craving for authentic Creole fare while in the French Quarter should stop by Mr. B's Bistro. The plush seating, stained-wood finishes, live string music, extravagant lighting and presidential booth could make guests feel like they’re in Titanic’s first-class dining area. The menu, however, is anything but a disaster. The Gumbo Ya Ya, paneed veal & fettuccine and oven-roasted pork belly cannot be missed. There are also options for the best fried chicken in New Orleans. The brunch menu has chicken livers, and guests get to enjoy Skip's Fried Chicken & Mac on Tuesdays.

An online poll by The Times-Picayune and New Orleans Advocate found that Ralph’s on the Park was one of the top 10 favorite restaurants in the NOLA area. Their buttermilk fried chicken sandwich easily makes the list of best fried chicken in New Orleans, but the BBQ Gulf shrimp, grilled puppy drum and grilled Vegas strip are equally as impressive. Guests can also enjoy live jazz and philanthropic events while immersed in genuine bayou décor – including vintage murals, vibrant art and rustic architecture.

As the flagship eatery of Mr. Lagasse, Emeril's Restaurant has been making waves in the city for over a quarter century. It's located in a renovated pharmacy warehouse, and the designers did well at putting a contemporary spin on an otherwise industrial atmosphere. The exposed and aged brick is contrasted with vibrant paintings, and former warehouse walls are now lined with wine racks. Toss in the famous Hot Fried Chicken and Waffles – or other delicacies like roast beef po'boys and the "Who Dat" Burger – and visitors are left with a culinary experience obviously crafted by one of the world’s most renowned chefs.

Anyone looking for the best chicken in New Orleans can find it at Luke Restaurant, but they'll need to show up during lunch on Monday. This is when the Tabasco Honey Fried Chicken is on the menu. Those who can't make it this early in the week can still enjoy Maw Maw's Roast Chicken, pork schnizel, the crispy oyster BLT and other Creole-inspired favorites. There's also a raw bar with the freshest seafood around, and this is all enjoyed inside a historic building that maintains the rustic appeal from the old days.

The Poulet Pané at Justine Restaurant might sound a bit fancy for those seeking the best fried chicken in New Orleans, but what’s wrong with combining poultry with a bit of refined French cuisine? The menu also offers hanger steak, Parisian ham, duck confit and other delicacies typically found in a French brasserie. The interior maintains this vibe with a massive pop mural featuring icons from France, decorative art that harkens back to the late 18th century and goddess-like statues. Guests might also catch the roaming burlesque!

Huey P. Long was governor of New Orleans and a Senator until his untimely death in 1935, and the Kingfish restaurant garnered its title from his nickname. The rustic chandeliers, black-and-white photography, exposed ductwork and distressed brick all combine to transport guests back to the era prior to the governor’s loss. In keeping with this trend, the menu is Louisiana-centric. This includes some of the best fried chicken in New Orleans – boneless pieces of half the bird – along with alligator grillades, gulf shrimp, pressed pork and duck breast.

While the eight local draft beers at Copper Vine are certainly worth bragging over, it's the 30 wine varieties on tap that makes them really stand out. The owners promise to make wine accessible to everyone by thrusting it into a fun environment – rather than the intimidating and often pompous environments too often encountered. This can be enjoyed in the outdoor seating area – packed with beautiful foliage – or inside among the modern seating and décor. They don’t have the best fried chicken in New Orleans, but they do have chicken-fried duck. Who can resist trying that at least once?

Dating back to 1856, Tujague's is the second oldest eatery in the entire city of New Orleans. They recently changed locations, but recognizing their role in maintaining Old NOLA, they maintained their luxury vintage vibe on the inside. This wasn’t difficult since the new building is from the 1840’s, and the wood columns, antique decor and leaded windows were also maintained. They do cook some of the best fried chicken in New Orleans, but patrons should know that it's tossed on a bed of lettuce. Anyone seeking something less healthy can enjoy oyster po-boys, crawfish etouffee or the restaurant's famous brisket.

Like many eateries found in the Warehouse District, Annunciation is housed in a restored warehouse from the turn of the century. Vintage entryways and the original exposed brick remain, but wine racks, fine dining sets, cozy lighting and modern art offer an updated atmosphere. Guests curious to see if they have the best fried chicken in New Orleans will have to order it along with dumplings – as this is the only way it's served. For those unexcited about this prospect, the pasta primavera, roasted duck, Veal Annunciation and pork shoulder offer pleasant alternatives.

Anyone seeking a fun and upbeat dining experience would be remiss to not visit Flamingo A-Go-Go. The vibrant flamingos and colorful décor begins on the outside of the building, and the bright hues never seem to stop. There's a mixture of pop artwork on the inside along with whimsical decorations, energetic murals and a convenient phone charging station. Their chicken fried chicken and Creole red beans and rice with buttermilk fried chicken added are divine, but many people simply end up staying for the rosé brunch and bottomless mimosas. There are also doggy parties, so the best fried chicken in New Orleans might not even be the biggest draw!
