In a city with do much good food, Mr. B's does not stand out. Large, busy, it had mite of a cafeteria vibe than a vibe dining restaurant. The good was OK. Nothing wrong with it but also nothing memorable.

This place is go go go ! Food was fine and they serve local dishes. Staff attentive and efficient. Good for a group. Quite noisy. Not cheap. Not somewhere I would go for a date !

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
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
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
