We were looking for a quick bite to eat before heading out for the night and decided to try here after looking at the menu and it was an average experience. The service was good, our waitress was very sweet and we had no complaints about her. The first negative was they had a live piano player which is great... More

This place is fantastic and we have now been there four different times after finding it when visiting New Orleans. This time I had the Chicken Toulouse which is a breaded fried chicken breast topped with crawfish andouille cream sauce. It was beyond good...it was crazy good. The wife had the Extra Napkins PoBoy sandwich and said it was fantastic.... More

I had researched some places to eat and this one had high reviews. They did not disappoint. My husband said the catfish had the best taste of any he had eaten. I had gotten the blackened chicken salad (to stay gluten-free) and the chicken had an excellent rub on it without being too hot. The atmosphere was great as they... More

Delicious eggs Benedict--on a biscuit. Reasonably priced at $10.00. Regular bacon & eggs were pricey at $10.00 but tasty. The place was clean and waiters friendly. It's right beside the Galleria Hotel so convenient for us staying there. Otherwise there are cheaper places not too far away.

TV's galore for the sports enthusiasts and a piano player a few nights a week too. Big menu with everything you expect on a New Orleans menu from gumbo to jambalaya... More

A fair and below restaurant. It was recommended by the hotel But we had a great dissatisfaction and disappointment. A fast food basically. Nothing special and not even close to Cajun and kriole cuisine

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.
