About the Author

Novelist and recovering ad man Steven Wells Hicks spent forty years driving 192 miles up and down Interstate 55 between Mississippi and New Orleans, loving every minute coming south and loathing every second going back north. Buoyed by the success of his 2014 novel, Destiny’s Anvil, he and his wife, Lil McKinnon-Hicks (The Sensible One), pulled up stakes and now make their permanent home in New Orleans’ Algiers Point Historic District. Hicks wrote his first restaurant review in 1977 for “Jackson” magazine and has also written “Jackson PORTICO.” In addition to his five previous guidebooks about dining in New Orleans, he is the author of four novels: The Gleaner, The Fall of Adam, Horizontal Adjustment, and Destiny’s Anvil.

Dear Mr. Hicks, you made me hungry and thirsty!

Visions of blackened redfish, bowls of gumbo and a pepper jelly-glazed duck breast swirled around me like a hurricane as I read about the history of yesterday and today about some of the most notable restaurants in New Orleans as well as the best places to drink, even the ones off the beaten path. There are no photographs in this book but you don't need them. You will envision and even taste "from memory" some of the best cuisine you have ever had. Although I do not currently live in Louisiana, this is were I spent half of my life.

Author and New Orleans resident Steven Wells Hicks brings to life the vivid history of how these culinary establishments came to be and the people that nurtured them and even how a storm named Katrina couldn't take it away their resilience. He guides us through the years of this distinctive culinary landscape and what it is today. Through his words, he reminded me of how my direct ancestors of my Delta Sicilian heritage influenced and created a fusion of the Cajun/Creole Cuisine with their indigenous Italian family recipes like no where else in the world. The culinary influences are imprinted on my soul and just reading the words made me homesick. Steven Hicks made me realize how much I have been missing out. When I was growing up in Northern Louisiana, a trip to South Louisiana or New Orleans was a treat. Now, I envy my friends who still live there and on a whim, can experience the most unique and satisfying culinary haven on the globe.

Mr. Hicks takes us through the colorful history behind many of the most famous restaurants and their famous dishes in New Orleans such as Galatoire's and Antoine's as well as Paul Prudhomme's rise to "Champion of Louisiana Cuisine".

Excellent. Mouthwatering. Half of the places he talks about I've never heard of. Really gives you a great feel for iconic New Orleans restaurants and bars with some history thrown in and also obscure places that you'll never see listed in typical "favorite spots" in travel guides. Makes me want to visit and all the ones I've never heard of.
