This place is not for the faint hearted but if you leave hungry, it is your fault as the servings are big and so tasty.

I would have hated my girlfriend and I as guests if I was behind the bar working when we came barreling into Jacques-Imo's. We were scrambling to get some food to go excited to see Rebirth Brass Band next door at the Maple Leaf. Turns...More

From the street BBQ oysters, to the incredibly, tasty dishes, this culinary Mecca shines! It's impossible to single out just one dish from the very inventive chef's outpouring of culinary delights!

You really come to this restaurant for the atmosphere. The servers are very friendly and on top of their game. The building is eclectic and fun, but it is a little tight. The tables are very close together and the noise level can rise, but...More

Nice restaurant and good location near the Maple Leaf Bar. I was part of a large group. The servers did a good job in accommodating the group, but the food missed the mark for some of us. When I find myself adding condiments, something is...More

Uptown / Carrollton
Very much their own self sufficient unit within the
greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down
the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate
feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the
students living in the area ensure that Uptown and
Carrollton stay youthful, cosmopolitan and vibrantly
fun. Two of the liveliest thoroughfares for nightlife
and socializing (and yes of course more of the city’s

Looks like you got the answer. I never took the trolly.
I would really like to visit this restaurant during my stay in NOLA next month. However, it seems like it is very far and out of the way from everything else I plan to do. Is there something else of tourist-y interests in that area? What is that neighbourhood like?

Check on Yelp. Their food was just ok, I'd check out Brigsten's in the same neighborhood.
