The field of 68 has been whittled down to the Final Four teams. We've seen some great basketball, though the waning seconds of a game have yet to produce a signature finish - at this rate One Shining Moment is going to consist of clutch free throws and missed desperation heaves. More excitement is on the horizon, though, as Rick Pitino faces his former team in a grudge match which may leave the Commonwealth of Kentucky in shambles. For those traveling to partake of the Final Four festivities, don't neglect to plot out a well-crafted dining agenda. There are countless great restaurants near the Superdome (or at least en route to the venue). Or if you're looking to get your nosh on further away from the madness, here's our complete list of the best locally owned New Orleans restaurants. The editors at LocalEats have also recently compiled a list of our favorite Crescent City dishes. We're just crossing our fingers that New Orleans, among our most revered food cities, survives the impending Kentuckalypse. After all the furor, the winner of Kansas/Ohio State will probably be cutting down the nets, anyway.
Cruise uptown to Pascal's Manale for the best bbq shrimp you'll ever have the pleasure of tasting.
