We went last Sunday at 1:45pm, we were the last one seated for brunch, I believe. There were only a few other people still there dining, not sure how crowded they had been earlier in the day.

This might be the top restaurant in the French Quarter. Great wine list. Molly can help you pick a choice. If you are an oyster fan try the Oysters Revolution style.

We arrived in the pouring rain in flip flops and shorts (very underdressed even for lunch) but the hostess was exceedingly nice about not making us feel awkward. Decor is beautiful. Server was very nice and attentive. Muscles were to die for, shrimp were delish, and beet salad was awesome. All three in my party ordered the crab grilled cheese... More

Can't even explain this mega high end temple of goodness. The food is just amazing, the service over the top and the decor is second to none. In my estimation...one of the best restaurants in the country. A MUST when in New Orleans!! Chef John is awesome!!!!
