We walked over to Kermit's Speakeasy from our hotel, Inn on St. Peter, in the French Quarter in about 10 minutes. It's just beside Louis Armstrong Park (a lovely place), and we felt perfectly safe. We had a 2 year old baby with us, which was no problem for anyone there. They made us feel welcome and found us seats at the backroom table. The food, gumbo and fried catfish, was very good and probably the best down home food we found in NOLA. I only wish I'd come back for the hot tamales which looked fabulous. Kermit was great, as were the guest singers, one of whom we later saw at the French Quarter Festival. We had a fantastic time, and were so glad we went. Kermit finished on Down in the Treme which had everyone dancing at the end, and we loved the stamp on our wrists that said "Soul". Incidentally, we later saw that one of the official posters of the 2013 French Quarter Festival features Kermit Ruffins front and centre. Go, you'll have a great time.
