We went here for breakfast. We had the Eggs Benedict and coffee. The food and service are excellent but you are paying for it. Breakfast for two with tip was $50. Just be prepared to splurge.

I had the eggs benedict for breakfast and found them to be tasty and well prepared. This is one of the dishes that I use from hotel to hotel as a benchmark for the quality of their other dishes. I wasn't disappointed!

We came for the music but could not resist ordering the brownie. It was absolutely delicious. The house band was amazing. The wait staff was courteous and professional. We shall return.

Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other
parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title
might suggest that this area is all about business and
little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you
away from the Central Business District. The CBD
offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts
