The food we had was just OK. The octopus was not very flavorful. The special chicken (poullin) was also not very well flavored, but the bed of greens was nicely spicy. The grilled broccoli was good, but was really broccolini. When we got there, it...More

We enjoyed our dinner here very much, especially certain dishes. The fried calamari with spicy sauce was the best calamari I've ever tasted.

Uptown / Carrollton
Very much their own self sufficient unit within the
greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down
the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate
feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the

Carrollton stay youthful, cosmopolitan and vibrantly
fun. Two of the liveliest thoroughfares for nightlife
and socializing (and yes of course more of the city’s
