Oh, look at that Harry. How's your hip feeling now? Oh hey, bud! - Oh man. You know how this hip was hurting? It's like the other hip's hurting now.

A little Vietnamese comfort food for you. - [Harry] Alright. Lilly's is a local favorite. Ordinarily I would get the pho, given today's circumstances, I think we should just go with some spring rolls. There's a strawberry in this, that's why this is so unique! Oh yeah! You gotta make sure you put a little hot sauce on every bite, that's what I'm all about. Hot sauce on every bite. - I got my sauce already ready. - Come on, nothing more efficient than Vietnamese. - Oh, you need some nice tacos right now buddy. - The grilled snapper from the Gulf of Mexico, caught that 90 miles south of here yesterday. - Good Lord! - [Chef] The house made tortillas. - Awesome.

Oh awesome, look at these things. - [Bruce] Mm, gotta eat. - Oh my God, there's rice in it, that's awesome! We just took chicken wings to a whole new level, we're stuffing it with rice. - I don't know how he does it, I don't know how this guy can eat all this food. - I know. Oh dude, Cane and Table, I've been looking forward to this all day. - This is one of the most recommended spots in the French Quarter. - [Chef] Saint Louis style pork ribs that are brazed in rum, poblanos, onions, garlic, ginger. - [Harry] Thank you. - Enjoy. - Salute, my friend. Oh man! - It's that good? So good! - Oh my God! There's some loving care, and a lot of work that went into this. - Wow! - [Voiceover] Round three, dinner! - Our boy Tarak, he used to be in the hospitality industry, he used to work for everyone, and now he gave it all up to be a veterinarian.

He had a voodoo doll. - Bruce had a voodoo doll? - I got you one. -He's been complaining it's a little hot. It's about to get real hot up in here, Bruce.

Pleasure, thank you man. - You're welcome. - It's hot in here. - It's a lot of fun. - Thanks for getting my back. - No worries, any time. - [Harry] Alright, dude. - Came all the way out here to River Bend, Cowbell does some amazing fish tacos. - How's it going man, are you still hot or are you okay? - It was weird. - It's a little cooler here. - It is cooler, a lot cooler, but that was weird. - [Harry] Taco cheers, boom, haven't done that in a while. - [Bruce] Hang on bud, you forget the lime. This is a local spot man. I know you like places locally sourced. - I do! I can't stop, man. - Very nicely seasoned. You need some water? - Soda, soda water. Bruce, it's gonna be a wet one for you! Whoa, what happened to you!? What happened to you? - I don't know if I just like, tripped on something. I'm gonna go dry myself off. - Yeah, put your sweater on or something dude. Let me go help you Bruce. - Beautiful. - This evening called for a little bit of cheers and we're almost done. - Oh hello! - Hey! We have the banana, but we have something a little extra we call the little "lanya," enjoy! - [Bruce] Getting it all. I'm finding a second wind, because she said "fried banana." - How often do you get a banana on a plate? - For dinner. - Oh my God. - [Bruce] It's an instant classic in my book, this bright red beet. Voila! - You know what Bruce? - What's that? - I think we need another cocktail. We have a special treat for you everyone, our very first day of gluttony pop up! - We're at Sarsa Parilla. A Dante's during the day, Sarsa Parilla at night. - [Bartender] This is the Soft Atlas, it's a rye based cocktail, this one is Lost in Jalisco, it's a tequila based cocktail. - Cheers. - [Bruce] Pumpkin and kale bisque. - [Harry] There you go, buddy. - [Bruce] Oh yeah. - Mm! You know, soup is exactly what we needed for restaurant number 20. Here it is, soup's done. - Gonna grab some air. - Alright dude, we've got five minutes. - Gonna get you back, Harry man! Think you can laugh just because I get my face wet? Oh I can't eat gluten, oh I can't eat bread! Oh a little bit of crumbs right there, and your back, I got bread crumbs for days for you, bud. - Bruce, we gotta go man, I'm getting mauled by these New Orleans mosquitos. - Oh man, they're all over here man, get out of here, get out of here now, man! - Isn't this beautiful dude, this is Square Root. - This is Root Squared upstairs. Downstairs, Square Root. - [Harry] Up here, craft cocktails, amazing dishes, without having all the courses. Cheers, thanks bud! Mm, this is gonna go so good with that tartare. Jeff, good to see you! - Oh hey. - [Jeff] This tartare here is gonna go up against any tartare in this country, guaranteed. - Serious confidence. - Oh yeah, absolutely. - Little bursts of crunch, like that? - Mm! - [Bruce] Little bit of greens right there. - [Harry] I'm revitalized by this tartare. - I know we're upstairs, but we're really, we're on another level of food here. - We gotta go, come on! Tasting room! - Yeah. - [Harry] Cheers! - This wouldn't be complete though, without one dish. - [Chef] We have some mussels here, they're served in a red eye gravy, little bit of toppings, like some Cajun ham and bourbon potatoes. - Mm, I just bogarted that bite. - That's alright, you just bogarted all my potatoes. The food coma is setting in, dude. What did you do to us? We have two more spots. - Kind of melting away, bud. Melting away. - I'll take a chocolate. Great chocolate. Great spot you brought us to. - [Bruce] Bouligny Tavern, something shaken for you, something stirred for me. - Oh wow! - Tequila, this guy likes tequila. - [Bartender] Beautiful! - [Bruce] We got one dish. - You know what, the only thing that would be acceptable is escargot. Oh! What do you know, it's escargot. Mm, mm! - [Bruce] You see what you're missing here? One last spot? - [Voiceover] Final stage! - [Bruce] Dump truck fries, number 24! - Dump truck fries! This is what we call a hangover cure. I'm pretty sure I'm dead right now, and I'm in gluttony heaven.

I think I'm done. - My little dancing Bruce! - Harry, Harry! Oh, you sneaky! - Ah, the powers of New Orleans. No more witchcraft, Bruce. - The temptation was way too great. - Put it behind us. - Yeah, what's next? - How do you feel about barbecue? - Good idea. - [Voiceover] Game over!
