Reopened as Desi Vega's Steakhouse, but much more than a typical steakhouse. Same phone. Gourmet menu, Beef was just right. Quail was delicious. Great view of street and park.

Ate outside on a beautiful fall evening and service was great. My dinner was fine, but my daughter in law ordered a "Crispy Duck" special which was pretty much sliced raw duck.

The worst service I've ever experienced!!!!! Slow, inattentive, uncaring..... I could go on forever. . The food was marginable at best too. We had the tuna entree...entirely too salty. Our son had the seafood crepes they were ok. The flatbread app, was coated in b-bque...More

Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other
parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title
