Beautiful resturant from inside and out, Old style designed and food dishes. Was very impressed by service crew, and the food was so great. Had a duck as entree and it was perfectly executed. Definitely a must if you're in NOLA area.

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
