The barman was superb, chatted to everybody who came in. Knew a lot about the beers and his recommendation hit the spot. The oysters were superb but watch out for the horseradish sauce as it is really hot.

Stopped in here after riding the streetcar out from downtown. The roast beef po-boy was virtually tasteless. My friend's veggie burger was passable. Overall an unpleasant experience.

Uptown / Carrollton
Very much their own self sufficient unit within the
greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down
the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate
feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the
students living in the area ensure that Uptown and
