We dined for lunch at Galatoire's in late March and it was as good as ever. Most restaurants that have stood the test of time like this grand oldie suffer periods of ups and downs, but I've been dining at Galatoire's for 30 years and...More

The atmosphere was reminiscent of a Parisian bistro - black and white tile floors, mirrored walls above the chair rail, fleur de lys motif and happy diners loudly talking to their parties. I debated about making a reservation, but when I called they said I...More

I enjoyed Galatoires despite some people saying it's just a food production factory. The service was quite friendly, drinks inexpensive - ,but that's everywhere in N.O. Food was exactly what I was looking for, creole French that I have never really had before. It was...More

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs

around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
