Every day during the month of August, we’re highlighting one restaurant from our recent ranking of the 31 Best Restaurants in New Orleans. Today’s restaurant, Mother's, is #29 on our list. 

The best way to sample the best the menu has to offer is by ordering the Ferdi Special, a po’boy packed with baked ham, roast beef, gravy, and that magical substance known as debris, the shredded beef that’s a byproduct of the slow-roasting beef. It’s nothing short of legendary.
