BOURBON PECAN SHAKE

Its a very nice place to go, we were an our vacation looking for special places to eat NOLA food, their food was OK, but the drinks were much better. You must try their Bourbon Pecan Shake and Moscow Mule!

This was our "go-to" place last week during Mardi Gras, partly because they continue serving breakfast until 1pm. Staff is WONDERFUL, friendly, helpful. The food is very good and the prices perfectly reasonable. Building is historic and interesting. Be sure to research the history.

We were with friends that raved about this place the last time they visited. They were craving the bloody marys and they didn't disappoint. I tried the fried frogs legs (tasted like chicken) and the crab cakes (I tasted more crab than bread crumbs which was a plus).

I've been to this restaurant twice. I can never remember the name of it but it's always on my list of places to find. They have a very good non-traditional jambalaya. It isn't heavy on the tomato sauce; instead it's more like a dirty rice with blackened shrimp or chicken. It is easily one of the top 2 meals I've... More

We ate at the bar and the bartender seem to be pretty rough and not friendly. Her recommendations on the menu were not very good. We ordered a cup of gumbo which wasn't very good and a couple of their sandwiches which were average at best. There are so many good places in the quarter and this is one that... More

We had passed this restaurant in the afternoon and decided to go back for tea. We had about a 10 minute wait outside and were served by Collette who kept us amused and entertained during our meal. Really good evening.

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
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 Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
