We were drawn in by a first rate jazz band. We stayed for drinks and yummy alligator bites, and drinks, and music, and drinks. What a perfect afternoon!

This place is centrally located on Decatur right by the French Market and easy to find. Lots of patio spots but it was chilly so I ate inside. I was kinda hankering for breakfast, but the tourists were all about the buffet which looked sketchy...More

Be aware when traveling in a group that they do not split checks and of course they add a mandatory 18% gratuity. That in itself was not a big deal but our waitress all but ignored us, after walking around town we were parched but...More

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty

across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
