Dined there for breakfast and ordered the Bayou Bowl. Prompt service, and the meal looked like a work of art... it was also as nice to eat as it was to look at.

Peche is an excellent option as well as anything else located on Magazine Street. Try to stay away from the "tourist traps" around Bourbon street and environs
