TopsOfTownNew2016NEW ORLEANS MAGAZINE, January, 2016--

In this, an election year in Louisiana, our readers have been making their feeling known about their picks for the Tops of the Town. There were no mean-spirited commercials funded by Political Action Committees in our voting, no mindless Obama-bashing. Rather, this was just straight forward voting – folks telling us what they think.

A couple of things you should know:  To make the list a choice had to have a significant cluster of votes. Places without enough votes were eliminated. Categories without enough voters were also removed. Where there was evidence of ballot box stuffing (and there wasn’t much) the votes were adjusted accordingly. We know that there are some significant places that didn’t make the list, nevertheless we’re confident that those that are listed are all worthy and are among the tops in their field.
