This was the first restaurant we picked after arriving in NOLA late in the evening. For the moderate price points, it was an excellent choice! I had the muffuletta which is supposed to be the best thing on their menu. Apparently, most muffulettas are served...More

The Pimms cup tasted so good, I had to try both the Original and the Englishman's Pimm Cup. Both were excellent and refreshing, however I highly recommend ordering the 20oz Englishman's Pimms cup if you prefer your drink a little less sweet with more of...More

One block from Jackson square in a lovely and historic home you will find a very pleasant atmosphere, friendly service, excellent food and a great price. Avoid the tourist ripoffs and enjoy very good food and drinks. The menu is not large, but the food...More

After spending most of the day on water (airboat swamp tour in morning and Steamboat Nanchez in the afternoon), we headed directly to Napoleon House for our final night in New Orleans because I absolutely had to have a Muffuletta. I also ordered a Boudin...More

I've paid 2 visits to Napolean and enjoyed a sandwich (first time), gumbo (2nd time) and Bourbon Milk cocktail (both times). The service was good and the bar a little dim (to read the menu). Unusual background music of Ravel's Bolero and Rossini's William Tell...More

Our family of 4 enjoyed eating after dark in the outdoor courtyard. The courtyard isn’t quite as magical as it looks on the website, but it was still pleasant. The warm muffuletta was good (still not as good as the original at Central Grocery), the...More

Our waiter, Bruce, introduced us to the Pimm's cup drinks, and they did not disappoint. The Ponchatoula Pimm's, served in the bar's signature glass, helped to forget the heat and humidity of a June afternoon in New Orleans.

Perched on the corner of Chartres & St Louis St this beautiful bar/restaurant welcomes you with large dark wood louvered doors. The atmosphere is old world, but fits the heir of its namesake. They tout the best Pimms Cup, which is what brought me here....More

This used to be my favorite place in New Orleans, but the past two trips have been a disappointment. The food is average, service slow, and the bartender tends to slip in well liquor on your second drink. Still love the decor and history, but...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
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
