I had a filet and my husband had a shrimp dish and both were excellent! We had 2 waiters and they were both very attentive. The hotel Monteleone is worth seeing too.

Six friends decided to splurge and have dinner here. The elegant restaurant allows casually dressed diners, so we felt relaxed. The service was friendly and entertaining, the food quite good and the wine and drinks as well. Although our table was near the Carousel Bar,...More

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

Breakfast is casual. We did not eat dinner there but did have drinks at the bar and lounge. We did not see anyone in very casual clothing. So if not long pants then dress shorts. Hope this helps.
