and the restaurant has closed. New business has opened at the location called Horns. Nothing about this place was to my liking. Over priced, food was not all that great, and the service was terrible

Southern Comfort food and more in the Marigny, open 24-7 Thursdays through Tuesdays. Homey, low-key, friendly, and just what you need after a late night. Breakfasts are an obvious favorite, as are the Bloody Marys. Desserts are very popular, too, but after stuffing myself with...More

This is a wonderful little place in the Marigny with real comfort food and great atmosphere. Dinner is good, but breakfast was the best!

Faubourg Marigny & Bywater
Nestled between the French Quarter and the Ninth Ward,
the Faubourg Marigny & Bywater environs are largely
residential. Of course, folks around here love to go
out and have a good time as much as they do anywhere
in NOLA. And if out-of-towners want to join in the
festivities, well then so much the better! Home to
some of the most revered live music venues in New
Orleans, an eclectic gaggle of gourmand dining
