We stopped in New Orleans prior to our Carnival Cruise and ate at Deanie's Seafood. The wait was long but worth it!! I had Crawfish Etoufee and my husband had the seafood pizza. Both were excellent! If you like Cajun food this is a must!

Lots of options for fried seafood... I got the broiled crab stuff shrimp, it was good! One interesting tidbit, you get brought mini-potatoes when you get seated.

I had a cup of crawfish etoufee and a calamari wedge salad. I thought the calamari would be fried but it was marinated but was plentiful. The wedge was huge but had a herb mixture on it I didn't really care for. Husband had BBQ...More

Deanie's is a must. If you're in the French Quaters of the Big Easy, you have to eat here, period! Go early, expect to wait for a table. Quite possibly one of the best restaurants in the Quarters.

We hit this place every time we are in town. I think their BBQ shrimp is the best in town. I love the "lagniappe " Red potatoes for the table, and Service is consistently good.

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
