Of our four season dining guides, the Winter Restaurant Guide is the most focused in celebrating the myriad influences on this city's culture -- by cuisine. If we are not a continental city, we are certainly a city of continents, taking our culinary cues from all corners of the world and making them, one way or another, uniquely New Orleans. It's why we don't just say something is 'Creole' or Cajun'; there's also 'Louisiana Contemporary.' It's where the line sometimes blurs between 'American Contemporary' and 'Intercontinental.' And it's where 'Chinese,' 'Japanese,' 'Indian' and 'Thai' dance around the word 'Panasian.'
So if you're wondering what's for dinner tonight, here's a little -- OK, a lot -- food for thought.
