Being a vegetarian was relieved to find this place in Nola. The carribean brown rice was superb! The owner is really serving meals from his heart. Its inside the French market, so don't expect a fine dining restaurant.

This place is a haven for Celiacs who want to enjoy the food of NOLA. Crab cakes, gumbo, Po'boys and more. Delicious food and friendly, knowledgeable service.
