Many real New Orleans and New Orleans-area restaurants, bars, and other venues have been featured on the show. These include: Lil' Dizzy's Cafe; Vaughan's; Cafe Du Monde; Mosca's Restaurant; Tipitina's; Dooky Chase's Restaurant; The Rock'n'Bowl; The Blue Nile; and many others. Janette's fictional New Orleans restaurant, Desautel's, was "played" by the real-life restaurant Patois. Storylines have also focused on the real-life New York restaurant Le Bernadin and a fictionalized version of the real restaurants Momofuku Ko and Ssäm Bar (called "Lucky Peach," after those restaurants' chef's cooking magazine). These New York-set scenes are actually filmed on a soundstage in New Orleans. See more
