This is the spot...

We've been looking for a place like this. Casual and delicious food along with the BYOB... Perfect for us. We had fried green tomatoes and fried soft shell crab as apps... Really good.

A block off bourbon street, this place is worth getting away from the tourist places. On weekends they serve brunch. Honestly the best fried catfish I've ever had.

This is a modern cozy restaurant with well thought and expertly cooked food. Attentive servers. At first glance the menu seemed strange, but our first bite of an appetizer uncovered the genius behind how these foods are combined and cooked. This is a place to Eat at time and again!

Great restaurant in a great location, friendly staff. Food was delicious. Southern food or home cooking with a twist is how I would describe it. Brunch was excellent including Huevos Rancheros, Chocolate Waffles, and Fried Green Tomatoes. Restaurant does not serve an alcohol bit it's BYOB, I believe no corkage fee for first bottle.

The staff was genuinely friendly, the cookies and cream waffle breakfast was on-the-money, and the atmosphere was great. I'll definitely revisit and recommend to my friends.

This is such a quaint little place on Dumaine. Food is incredible, particularly the pear and goat cheese torte! It is BYOB but they do provide cork service. Great location if you plan on shopping or going out in the French Quarter. Loved it!!

Food is inventive but not overbearingly so, I have eaten here a couple of times. Last time I had a cup of seafood gumbo, a small order of white beans and a side of collard greens. My friend had the cochon de lait. Last time I had frogs' legs. Everything has been excellent. Service is excellent -- friendly but not... More

We were there last night. Unless your children are well-behaved, please don't bring them to dine with you, they will disturb everyone else. High ceilings and wood floors make for a perfect acoustic disaster. Now for the food: the spicy deviled eggs were good. The butter beans with shrimp served in a bowl was disappointing---the roux base lacked flavor other... More

This remains one of our favorite places. But - but: if the music wasn't so intrusive it would be an excellent place. We old farts had to constantly "lean in" to hear our conversations. If the decibel level doesn't bother you the food is worth the visit! Added benefit it'S BYOB.
