This restaurant has all the classics, cooked very well. We came here twice for dinner during a recent New Orleans trip. Eat at the bar and make friends. The BBQ shrimp is fantastic as is the fresh fish of the day.

Appetizer was ok- yummy but nothing sensational. (We had the soup tasting and the app tasting) Hubby and I both had the shrimp and grits which was GOOD. Wrapped in bacon. Sweet and salty and shrimp and deliciousness. We enjoyed it

This was one of our favourite experiences in Nola. I will recommend it to friends and family when they visit. It should really be higher on the TA New Orleans restaurant ranking (with almost 3,000 reviews of which almost 2,000 are 'excellent') but the TA...More

Everyone said it was great, which sometimes sets up too high a bar. but it really was. Food, service, and ambiance all first rate. Way better then Commander's Palace where we ate the next night.

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
