Within a short walk (or an interesting carriage ride) of the French Quarter, this new addition, in an old building is a great asset to this interesting part of the city. Though it hasn't even had its Grand Opening, I've been 5 times, tried 5 different things, and have always had my new favorite! AND, I haven't even had the Shrimp and Grits, which looks wonderful! The old bank building with lots of light and fun art makes for a great atmosphere. The staff is young, efficient and friendly and there's an exciting vibe to the place, though it was not too much to overwhelm this 60+ year old. There is a special area which would be suitable for parties or business meetings. It's a great addition to the Ruby Slipper family of restaurants and a great addition to Faubourg Marigny.

This quaint little restaurant is located in the French Quarter and is with walking distance of even Decatur. We, however, were staying with locals that live on the same street and were invited to a special preview event. The owners were there that morning to welcome us and the staff was fully prepared for the crowds! I chose a banana pecan pancake stack, and my friend chose an omelette. Both came out in a timely manner, great temperature, and very pleasant presentation. We enjoyed our trip so much, we decided to go back one last time before we had to leave town. This time I opted for a smaller buttermilk pancake, and my friend got another omelette (but in a different style). Again, both meals were delicious and perfect. The staff seem to be really excited to be there, and very eager to make your meal wonderful. The restaurant is small but quaint, prices are affordable, and food is delicious! This is now a "must" on our visit to New Orleans not only because of the distance to where we stay but because the friendly atmosphere makes us want to return again and again!
