During a recent trip to NOLA, we put together a Mixology Tour and I wanted to share the top 7 drinks we found and where to get them. These drinks are not cheap – most cost more than $10 each. Try to get them during happy hour for example, Pimm’s cup at Arnaud’s was the best deal at $3 during... More

we ate here 3 times, food was great. Wonderful flavours. Staff was helpful in dealing with our food allergies. I had the scallops and shrimp on grits, but they were very accommodating to substitute the grits for garlic mashed for me, and it was AMAZING!!

This Restaurant is as much a bar as a restaurant. Half of the establishment is the bar in the front of the building and then there is the restaurant portion in the back. The food is very good, but very New Orleans so different from what you will get in most of the States. For an appetizer I the Rabbit... More

This was a faculty dinner while in New Orleans. This restaurant offers a private room that is very cozy and comfortable. We had excellent service, albeit slow, but and the food was delicious with numerous choices.

We enjoyed a fabulous meal at Kingfish which was made even better by the fabulous cocktails and really great service. Our waiter was genuinely nice, chatty and humorous. He recommended the cheese cake to us which was (also) gorgeous and completely demolished 😄 We retired to the bar for another cocktail to escape the rain and found the service great... More

House made sausage wontons were awesome. Were served on top of cheese grits. Grits were so good we ordered a side of them with entree. Wife had Kingfish on salt block. Was very good.

Ducked into this place to avoid the rains, not knowing the place, and ended up having one of our best meals in New Orleans! Nice bar (knowledgeable bartender) and great ambiance. Entrees 15-25 $. Highly recommend it!

We walked in for lunch not knowing whether this was going to be a good restaurant. It was! The menu is quite different. The gumbo is made with rabbit. It was delicious.
