Great place to meet friends for lunch. The Fried Tuscan Kale should not be missed. Share it with your friends. 3 of us split it and it was a perfect way to start off.

This is probably the 4th time we've dined at this favorite but we were thoroughly unimpressed tonight. 10 minutes from our seating before anyone came by. Waiter was completely lackluster as was the food to follow. Zero personality and care for his guests. What used to be pillowy pizza was flat, a beet salad plated with as much care as... More

We were celebrating my brothers engagement. The restaurant was helpful in accomodating a large group. We shared the mushroom rissotto, arancini and porchetta. All were great but I will dream about the porchetta which was crisp and flavorful. The lasagna was a popular choice. I liked my short ribs but my husbands pork chop was amazing. The cocktails were unique... More

My wife and I had a great meal here. The restaurant is beautiful. Service was excellent. The wine list is pretty reasonable. For starters, they are known for their roasted cauliflower and for good reason. It is HUGE so don't even try to eat one yourself; it probably can satisfy four. The dipping sauce was awesome. We both had pasta... More

Had thanksgiving reservations. Heirloom turkey was simply the best I'd ever had. Tried the lasagna -- also amazing. Also sampled their amazing short ribs. Appetizers and desert were fantastic as well. Tried to make reservations several nights later, but only a few random times were remaining. The entire staff did a wonderful job as well. Highly recommend this place!!!

There are so many amazing restaurants to explore in New Orleans - but this is one of my favorites. Even my kids loved the different appetizers fighting over who got to finish the kale! Highly recommend!!

A big thank you for the excellent service - we had a table of 10 without a reservation and they took us without a hiccup. The roasted cauliflower, the lasagna, the manicotti dishes were all fabulous. I need the recipe for the cauliflower & dip. The pizzas were kind of pitiful, tasted burnt even though they weren't, and soggy in... More

Our server was wonderful. He was very attentive and pleasant. We ordered the roasted cauliflower and the tuscan Kale apps. They were amazing. For my dinner my friend who had eaten here before and recommended the Squid Tagliolini. It was incredible, nice and buttery, with wonderful crab. We also ordered a bottle of their Pinot Noir they were offering that... More

What a great menu! Imaginative appetizers - all delicious. A nice selection of entrees too. We eventually had a great window-side table, although when we arrived on-time for our reservation, our table was not ready and we had to wait at the bar for 30 minutes past our reservation time. Luckily, we were not in a hurry and the table... More

Antipasti of roasted cauliflower, burrata, and fried Toscan kale are full of suprise. Primi of squid ink tagliolini, risoto, are eually amazing. For Secondi, aqua pazza and gulf snapper will fully satisfy your palates. Finally, Dolci of affogato gives the whole story a perfect ending. Wine is excellent, one of the best Rosso di Montalcino ever tasted! Bravo and two... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title might suggest that this area is all about business and little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you away from the Central Business District. The CBD offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.
