Great food, incredible cocktails (try the Duck Fat Sazerac) and very friendly and helpful service. Highly recommended.

Amazing food, top notch staff and a lovely ambience. Had the best oysters i've ever eaten- hands down....and I live in New England so i've had a fair amount of oysters.
We ordered their daily special catch and it was served on a bed of basil infused rock salt which penetrated into the brine and created an extremely flavorful treat.
The space was much more upscale than I expected but had a casual and warm vibe, so it would be appropriate for many types of diners and events. I highly recommend adding this restaurant to your NOLA dining experience!

I ordered a local beer (NOLA Brown Ale) and Shrimp and Grits. The service is excellent I was seated right away, was furnished with a glass of water, and the server made several recommendations. The decor is funky but tasteful.

This old home in the midtown area has been converted into a neat off-the-beaten track restaurant. We celebrated a wedding anniversary with a brunch there and thoroughly enjoyed our meal & experience! Prices are comparable to most NOLA restaurants. Try the Bourbon Milk Punch- yum. They even treated us to complimentary champagne for our occasion & an umbrella when we got ready to leave during a downpour. Small band played background music as well. I would go back again!

this old house turned into a neighborhood restaurant is in the lower garden district near magazine street. the menu highlights local product and dishes with a contemporary twist. the kitchen does especially well with seafood. you can truly make a dinner out of the apps menu alone and be quite happy with the varied southern/nola cuisine. but you may want to dive into the entree dish of shrimp and grits. this is especially good. the cocktail bar is excellent and very accommodating. pricing is fair. if going on a weekend evening plan on making a reservation. locals like this place.
