A trip uptown in New Orleans should always include dinner at Jacques-Imo's. It can't be beat! If you're staying downtown, you can drive, take a cab, or take the St. Charles streetcar up to Carrollton and then get off at Oak Street. If you drive and you get there before six, you shouldn't have much difficulty finding parking spots on side streets. The wait staff is excellent! They all work together as a team to insure that you have an amazing dining experience. They'll start you off with cornbread muffins that are warm and so buttery that they melt in your mouth. They'll offer you seconds, but try to resist and save room for dessert (bread pudding or crème brulee). We had the shrimp creole and the redfish, and, between us, sides of mashed sweet potatoes, red beans and rice, and corn. Everything was delicious. With the entrée, you'll get a house salad of baby spinach with a fried oyster on top. Their signature appetizer is alligator cheesecake. If you haven't had it before, you should order one serving for your table so everyone can get a taste. Bon Appetit!
