Great place, not just for locals

We heard this a newer place that locals go too. We went for lunch, it was great. The food was great, the service was good. The best is the peanut butter cake if they have it!

We were looking for a place to eat on our last night in New Orleans and stumbled upon Eat just up Bourbon street. It is BYO but there is a perfectly serviceable liquor store just down the block plus there's no corkage on your first bottle or six pack. The crawfish boulettes were packed full of flavour and although we... More

Me and my sister came here on a Saturday night during our "staycation." Our server gave A++++ service (don't remember his name sorry). He always cam to the table in a timely fashion to refill drinks and make sure we were ok. We ordered the crawfish boulettes for appetizers and I could have ate them from my dinner they were... More

Great food here - we visited for breakfast. Get there just before opening to ensure a table. Good selection on the menu, would love to go back to try options we ruled out. Loved the atmosphere - the kind of place you'd bring a date. Staff are fun and very friendly. Great place to hang out and enjoy!

This was a neat little spot near our hotel so we swung by for lunch and I'm glad we did. I read about the chicken livers and being from Kentucky, I know about chicken livers. These had a pepper jelly you could dip in them. Amazing. The coffee was above average as well. Everything is local and fresh. I would... More

New Orleans is full of delicious food, but EAT's food was my favorite! Very refined, traditional cooking. Foodies should definitely put EAT on their lists of restaurants to visit!

My husband and I really enjoyed this restaurant on our last night in the French quarter. Deviled eggs, crawfish boil stew, butter beans and shrimp, blackened catfish sandwich, fried green tomatoes, and chocolate cake. I didn't think we could still be impressed with dessert, but wow! Everything was wonderful!

We were so glad that we decided to have dinner somewhere near our Burgundy Street hotel instead of getting into the crowded area further in the quarter. Every thing we ordered was delicious and our server was kind and attentive. The fried green tomatoes remoulade, pork tender, Caesar salad, toasted red pepper soup and bread pudding were outstanding.

We took my sister and her husband to Eat to celebrate their anniversary. It was the perfect place for the occasion - delicious food, fantastic service (thanks, Eric), lovely ambience. We all enjoyed it very much and will make it part of our New Orleans visit every time.
