NCIS: NEW ORLEANS Sneak Peek: Celebrity Chefs And NOLA Music Star Tonight

Sometimes, life is all about who you NO-LA.

Guest starring on tonight’s NCIS: NEW ORLEANS are a group of real-life chefs “guar-ahn-teed” to make you gain weight while you watch… John Besh, Susan Spicer, Leah Chase and Sue Zemanick.

Known almost as much for their charitable and humanitarian works as for their incredible food, one look at the photos above will have you reaching for your fork and your checkbook (to make a donation) at the same time.

Another treat on tonight’s episode, “Help Wanted,” is musician Gary Clark, Jr.

Clark’s talent is surpassed only by his efforts to raise money and awareness for those in need.

The episode is centered around a Navy culinary specialist who is the target of an explosion while visiting her family’s 100-year-old restaurant in the French Quarter, while Brody is in D.C. tracking a lead in the General’s case.

But the real treat tonight is the sounds, sights and yes-you-almost-can-smell-the-flavor of the Crescent City. The cast and crew look like they are having the times of their lives, as do the guest stars and the lucky passers-by.

The visuals alone will make your mouth water and your phone dial for a vacation rental. (Warning: Once you go, you may never go home.)

Sometimes, life is all about what you NO-LA.
