About
In the late 1800's, Royal Street was home to a famous "curio" shop, a place where curiosities from all over the world could be had for a dollar or two. Today, the shop is no more, but the feeling of excitement and wonder still exists on Royal Street today. And so in the heart of the most premier art district in New Orleans, we're bringing back the curiosity - reintroducing New Orleans to a circus

Curio was the perfect lunch spot. Balcony dining is a must! The food was amazing. We shared Grit Tots, Taste of New Orleans, Crawfish Cavatappi Pasta(my personal favorite)and Bread Pudding.

We loved this bar for its vibe and music (not jazz but good songs played from CD?) Great bottomless process hours... say no more. Loved the staff here while we sat at the bar.

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
