Harry Connick, Jr. is ready to laissez les bons temps rouler in NOLA.

First off, Harry Connick, Jr. wants to set the record straight. "[It's] New Orleans...Here's how you do not pronounce New Orleans: ‘N'awlins.' If you say ‘N'awlins' you are not from New Orleans and it's a giveaway!" the star joked in the Twitter video. As a New Orleans native, though, Harry Connick, Jr. has far deeper knowledge of his hometown than merely pronunciation guidelines. Turns out, Connick, Jr. is a New Orleans food expert. Watch below as he leads viewers through the city's epicurean delights.

His most beloved eatery of them all? A spot serving Cajun fare in the Lakeview neighborhood where Connick, Jr. grew up. "This place here is my favorite restaurant in all of New Orleans. I love the owner, Danny," he said. "It's called Cava and the food is absolutely a 10 out of 10."Based on the look on his face when he sits down to dig into "Mr.Higgins Crab Claws"―a hearty plate of sautéed crab fingers in a lemon butter cream sauce―we're excited to add Cava to our Crescent City bucket list. Who's hungry?
