While my experience at the Le Pavillon Hotel was questionable, at best, by breakfast in the Crystal Room was spectacular. The wait staff as prompt, the crawfish omelet a great surprise, real maple syrup, and great coffee. The only thing that could make it better...More

I am not even quite sure what happened. This place came highly recommended by my guidebook, so I dragged my sister there under apparently false pretenses. If you don't care to read the whole thing, just know: wickedly overpriced, bland and boring buffet. Skip it...More

After having a horrible experience at the hotel, we did enjoy our meal at The Crystal Room. It is not the same as it was prior to the hotel undergoing renovations and new management, but it is still very good. The buffet is expansive with...More

Only open for breakfast and lunch, welcome to most unexceptional breakfast you'll pay for in New Orleans. A beautiful environment marred by slow service and overpriced breakfast items ($12 for orange juice?). Go to Mr. B's in Metairie!

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
