Stopped in for an early lunch and to cool off a little. Since it was early the place was not crowded. The crab cakes were delicious and the greens were just like mom made them.

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
