Packed Sunday with families enjoying a traditional brunch. Excellent local cooking and a great little band made this a perfect combination of good food, atmosphere and people watching. Well worth a visit.

If you love crab cakes Mr B's wont disappoint. Their barbecue shrimp is so tasty you need a bib when eating. I loved my chopped salad as well as the pecan pie. It always seemed crowded but we never need a reservation.

The food is exceptional and atmosphere comfortable. Did I mention the service, very professional and accommodating! Casual not stuffy, but they take there business seriously. Wouldn't hesitate to take children.

We stopped in for a cocktail, and found the place very elegant, calm, with the best cocktails we had in the city. A very sophisticated respite from the craziness that can be the French Quarter.

If you are not from the south, the idea of grits being a high-end dinner sounds just wrong. Well, I am here to correct you. If you have not experienced New Orleans grits, this is the place to do it, with the Bacon-Wrapped Shrimp and...More

Great ambiance and good live jazz! First they bring fresh baked hot baguettes that are to die for. Get some gumbo ya ya and used that bread. Get the crab cakes & eggs and sip some champagne. Have an afternoon cocktail at the Carousel Bar...More

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

around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
