Accidentally stumbled upon this place while looking for a quick bite. The place was empty, except for one or two tables (Thursday morning off season and close to closing), but that didn't stop the staff from providing warm and friendly service! Ended up getting an eggplant sandwich that was so warm and gooey, and the red gravy was so tasty!... More

If you love Italian food, this is the breakfast place for you. Meatballs rule, even for breakfast. The portions are large and service is friendly. Food to keep you going for the entire day.

This s a really cool little place with 25 or so tables. We had their breakfast and the selection was great. They cook eggs about 20 different ways with many unique combinations. My friend had a breakfast hamburger which had Burger, Bacon, Grilled Onions, Fried Green Tomato, BBQ Sauce, all in a Waffle Sandwich. Our server Rachel was excellent. She... More

The staff and atmosphere were so enjoyable. That set the mood for really great food. The best eggs Florentine I've ever had! Can't wait to go back on our next trip.

WOW! That word says it all. My husband, seldom a "sweets for breakfast" kind of guy ordered the Cannoli Pancakes and I tried their King Cake French Toast (special of the day) -- a french toast made from KING CAKE stuffed with cream cheese and topped with apples. We can express how much we enjoyed every bite. DELICIOUS. The people... More

Small cozy place with great food. Ordered eggs Florentine with side of cold stone cut grits and sautéed/roasted apples. Specials change weekly. Food is unique blend of Italian and American cuisine.

Red Gravy advertises the best meatballs. They are telling the truth. I had a meatball omelet with ricotta cheese. It was marvelous. Went here rather then stand in line at Ruby Slipper. Wise decision. My husband is sorry he didn't try the King cake French toast. Nice waitstaff. Pleasant venue.

For sometime now, I had been fielding recommendations for Red Gravy in New Orleans, so on the Memorial Day weekend, we decided to grab Brunch/Lunch, as we were staying at the near-by Windsor Court Hotel. Unfortunately, because of the holiday, the menu was limited. Fortunately, we decided to stay for Pasta & Meatballs. When we visit New Orleans, we tend... More

This is one of the best Italian places we have ever eaten! There is not a dish here that you will go wrong with. The wait staff is very courteous and helpful. This is a definite must do!

Bright and cheereful spot at the edge of the CBD, just across from the French Quarter.

Our brunch menu is comprised of traditional breakfast items, traditional Italian specialties like our handmade pasta and famous homemade meatballs, typical northern New Jersey/New York dishes and local, New Orleans favorites. Full service bar, cappuccino and espresso available. Come and eat, I always make too much!

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
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 District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.
