Burger Restaurant of the Year
The Company Burger

This new burger joint leads the pack. The patties are made from Harris Ranch beef, are ground daily and are served on buttered, toasted, locally baked buns. The assortment of mayonnaises is made in-house, and a high-to-low list of beers and cocktails will keep adults happy. Go early to avoid the rush.

Pizza Restaurant of the Year

Multiple high-end pizza restaurants have opened in New Orleans over the last few years. In 2011, no place did it better than Ancora, the partnership between chefs Adolfo Garcia and Jeff Talbot. Neapolitan pizza is the thing at Ancora, and the massive pizza oven that dominates the kitchen was imported from the region. The pies that come out of that oven are some of the best we’ve tasted.
