For four lovely nights, my partner and I delighted in everything that this bed and breakfast had to offer. La Belle Esplanade was precisely as advertised (or described) on its website. The proprietors, Matthew and Melanie, greeted us as we arrived, acquainting us with the area, answering questions, offering a refreshing glass of wine a la new Orleans along with some tasty morsels. Make sure that you are hungry for breakfast as Melanie always has a wonderful assortment of local produce and goods. Favorites: olive salad, buttermilk drops, quiche Florentine. The rooms are spacious and airy with an attached terrace apt for quiet contemplation or to take in the gorgeous views of palm trees against the setting sun. Not having had any other experience in New Orleans, I cannot imagine looking no further for my next trip. And, there will be another! Looking forward to seeing you again, my friends! A votre sante!
