Eat here if you come to NOLA. Period.
If you are staying downtown or in the French Quarter area then this is a bit of a cab ride to Uptown. It is worth it.
The restaurant is charming and warm with an adorable bar in the middle with smaller rooms with a few tables in each room but I did not feel cramped. They have a nice selection of creative and delicious cocktails. We tried 4 different ones and they were all tasty. The dinner menu has a great selection. The complimentary spoon bread was fantastic. The arugula salad was good, the shrimp was okay (not my favorite but good), my eating mate found the daily cured meat choices delicious and they are served on a wood cutting board with mustard, olives and crackers. The chicken meal was amazing. I honestly don't understand how they made a chicken so flavorful. Nice dessert selection.
Great server. All around great dining experience.
