Crawfish boulettes, Deep fried softshell crab dauphine with fried green tomatoes, a biscuit the size of my head with a lovely blackberry preserve and excellent service from Debbie. Lovely atmosphere! I also tried my husband's pork belly - also perfect! Couldn't ask for anything more perfect on a Sunday morning in sunny, warm N'awlins!

Such a great experience. Small, quirky bistro with an interesting freshly prepared menu. No liquor licence so grab beers or wine from the local mini store which keep the bill very reasonable. Lovely food, great service. Highly recommended

Highly impressed with this little place. Friendly and quick waitstaff and great food too! After walking around the city, we stopped here to eat. I ordered the stuffed peppers, which were AMAZING! If you are in New Orleans, I highly recommend finding this hidden gem!

I rate this place a 3 1/2. It has nice potential but is lacking focus and more sophistication. The menu is confusing at times, needs to be better organized. Many people read their outside menu but no one came in. It is BYOB since they are located across from a school. The service is pleasant but also lacks some polish.... More

EAT was recommended by our hotel desk clerk. We were tired of a week of traditional Louisiana food and wanted something fresh and different. It's a small place, and you walk in the door into the middle of the seating area. It had a nice, quiet atmosphere, lights were low at dinner. Waiter was friendly and helpful. Prices were reasonable.... More

They have a small menu but the food is deliciously prepared. We have been here several times and each time we are impressed with just how tasty the food is. I have had their eggs Benedict and have never had better. Today I had their catfish and again, outstanding. Not greasy, just right. Really crunchy fresh taste. Did not want... More

Great brunch but get there early! Ambiance is very cheerful and bright and the fried green tomatoes are great.

Servers were down to earth, as was the food. Small but not crowded with tables. You can BYO wine. Nice music and little fireplace.

Dropped our bags at the hotel and started walking. The lunch menu looked great and we found a table. The two of us split the potato leek soup, fried catfish po boy and butterbeans with shrimp. Charming atmosphere, local art on the walls. Fresh Southern comfort food- what I would picture having at a friend's home who happens to be... More

This is my first visit to New Orleans and like everyone else, I am staying in the French Quarter because that's where the conference is that I am attending. After walking up and down Bourbon Street on a Saturday night, I decided to avoid that street as much as possible. Good to see what it is all about, but unless... More
