Yes, we actually plan our trip itineraries around the Green Goddess hours of operation! On a recent trip, we had both lunch and dinner there. Both were fantastic! Everything (both food and drinks) was great, but I have to give a particular props for the French toast. Stuffed with fig compote and goat cheese, it was unbelievably delicious.

The perfect mix of booze, heat, flavor and pickled goodness. We go out of our way for this amazing cafe in a pedestrian alley in the French quarter. The staff is fun and offers good recommendations.

Discovered this restaurant soon after it opened and have been back a couple of times. Had not been back for about of year. Brought two of my friends who have never been to the restaurant, and we all agree this was the best meal of any of the restaurants we had eaten at during our trip. The charcuterie and hummus where delicious. The pork belly unbelievable, followed by the lamb meatloaf. David, our waiter, never skipped a beat, and the wine went along quite well with the meal. Forgot to mention the cocktails and beer selections. Don't see why I would not eat here every time I am in NOLA.

Great food. Vegetarian/Vegan and gluten free options available. Be prepared to wait to sit and then for your food. Totally worth the wait.

We saw this place on our first day in New Orleans as we were walking around. Wanted to eat lunch here, but it is tiny and it was full. So we came back here a few days later and were able to get it. The alleyway it is located in is a great atmosphere, so eat outside if you can. The sweet potato biscuits were incredible. I had the hummus (beet and pomegranate infused) which was interesting and good. My husband had a shrimp dish, we he enjoyed as well. This place obviously caters to vegetarians, so meat eaters should probably want to go somewhere else (although there IS meat on the menu, just not much). The dishes here are not anything you are going to find at most other places---everything is obviously original and in it's own world.
