So on a recent trip to NOLA my wife and I were liking for places to go that would not be complete tourist traps. We spoke to the concierge at our hotel and on her recommendation we ended our trip with a stop at EAT. On most evenings we did not get ready for dinner until after 7 pm, but... More

Three friends and I had brunch here on Sunday. All of us agreed this was the best meal we had beating out Bayona, Commander's Palace & several other well known restaurants.

Eggs Dumaine. That all I need to say. OK, Ill explain. I had to ask what grillades was, (pot roast blend of stuff). It was the best breakfast I ever, ever had. Looking around I saw they serve a pile of toast with homemade jam (that looked so good).

This was our first dinner in New Orleans and we were after something that would start our exposure to cajun /creole food. It is not of the quality of the first tier restaurants such as Mr B's, but nonetheless offers food cooked with care and respect for the ingredients and which showcases traditional foods of New Orleans and Louisianna. We... More

Fantastic place for breakfast. The staff were friendly and helpful, service was quick, and the food was truly delicious. The restaurant is located just a block from Bourbon Street, which was far enough away to be perfect for a relaxing start to the day.

Eat is a fantastic restaurant. We only wish we had been able to go more than once during our stay. We had a wonderful breakfast and my husband raved about the biscuits. Will be putting Eat on our list for a return trip!

One of the best restaurants we ate at on our trip to New Orleans. Started with an appetizer of spiced devil eggs followed by chicken fried chicken and beef tenderloin. Our meal also include a salad and Mac and cheese and garlic mashed potatoes. We chose a dessert of bread pudding which we split. Portion size was just right. The... More

We ate at several restaurants while visiting NOLA for 4 days. EAT was one of the best meals we ate. It was suggested by a waitress at another restaurant, and we are glad she shared this find with us. The food was delicious and truly an authentic French Quarter atmosphere. Our waitress was wonderful and very helpful with advising us... More

A dark quiet corner of the French Quarter is where you'll find "Eat," a small space with a couple rooms and a few tables, perhaps on a recommendation from a bookstore proprietor. Have some roasted lamb, so perfectly seasoned, moist and well cooked it slides easily off the bone. Or a crusted salmon. Sides included an extraordinary sweet potato mash... More

First, the food here is very good. Now. let me rant. The lighting was so dim that none of the three of us could read the very small print on the menu. So, we asked out waiter who appeared to have no knowledge of the menu. When he tried to explain the various specials and menu items we asked about,... More
