Stopped in for lunch with my 2 young grandsons after spending the morning a the Louisiana Children's Museum. Putting aside the slow service, the food was great and the music they were playing (LOTS of Bob Marley) was awesome! The boys split a Juicy Lucy (hamburger) and the oldest LOVED it!! I thoroughly enjoyed my Fried Oyster Po Boy. The... More

Y'all! This place was ADORABLE! Friendly service greeted us warmly and we seated ourselves. They had golf and baseball on the tvs (a plus for us). We arrived just in time for Happy Hour and Taco Tuesday. Dollar beef tacos, soft or crunchy, and $5 frozen or rocks margaritas that really hit the spot. Hubs had the two taco special... More

We went here since it was next to our hotel. We grabbed something off the late night menu and took it back to our room. We could've ate there but it was late and had the tired kids. Awesome service and great food. I tipped for a to go order because the guy was so attentive.

this place was about 3 blocks behind our hotel. We walked there for dinner. It had a LARGE college age crowd in the bar and in the back patio area, but the 7 of us were able to get a table right away in the dinning room that was somewhat quieter. The hamburgers were melt in your mouth!! We recommend... More

You can tell Lucy's is a fun place when you walk down the street and see the colorful lights and umbrellas. The inside is even better! There is a bar and a dining room side. Both are beachy and fun. Everyone is so friendly. I expected this to be a place to stop by for a cold drink on a... More

Loved meeting here either early evening or finishing up here before bed. Always a great atmosphere lots of staff and a great vibe. Had bar snacks only but restaurant always looked busy and often just came for a drink.. A shark attack cocktail is a must!

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title might suggest that this area is all about business and little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you away from the Central Business District. The CBD offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.
