Mona's (on banks) has a very pleasant atmosphere with outdoor covered seating available. The falafels are great. Their lebanese ice tea is really good. This is my go to place for consistent vegetarian fare. (But I know their gyro and shawarmas are good too.)

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

fun. Two of the liveliest thoroughfares for nightlife
and socializing (and yes of course more of the city’s
