Crappy service. Ok food. Canned "gulf" shrimp that were smaller than a dime. Forget about getting a glass of water. All 4 tables that our waitress served asked for water, she refused to serve a single table water. WTF?

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

I believe they open at 7:00. We arrived about 7:30 and were seated right away. Shortly thereafter, it got really crowded with people waiting outside. Very small restaurant but worth the wait.
