Somebody Feed Phil – New Orleans Itinerary
Netflix: Season 1
Phil Rosenthal visits New Orleans, a city that has rebounded from the devastation of Hurricane Katrina in 2005 to come back even better than before. The spirit is evident in the people of the city and also in the food, which is a vibrant melting pot of cultures. See the episode recap of the list of locations, restaurants, and attractions he visited on the show for the best of what to do in New Orleans.
