Set inside the National WWII Museum, American Sector is a New Orleans chef’s ode to Americana. Foot-long hotdogs, French dip sandwiches, and meatloaf share menu space with Cajun-Creole classics like crab ravigote, gumbo, and fried oysters. Chef Todd Pulsinelli is the man in charge at this John Besh restaurant, as well as at nearby The Soda Shop (which serves breakfast, lunch, and more casual fare), and both spaces pour house-made sodas flavored with local fruits. American Sector lets museum guests and diners explore food trends of the past-turned-present with help from a serious chef and a bright, modern setting.
