Allow me to say I am not sure they serve dinner as this was a private dinner but it was amazing. Fresh lump crabmeat on endive, a turducken pastry and foie gras as the appetizers. An amazing fruits de mar, creme St. Jacques for the first course followed by a delicious gumbo. The main course was slices of filet of... More

Reasonably priced, close to the hotel, no long line to get in, excellent food, reasonable prices considering location. Very nice interior ambience. Service a little slow, even on a slow day, but that's New Orleans, or so they tell me.

The food was okay, but there are other better and more interesting places to eat. We chose it for it's proximity to our hotel and the Superdome prior to the Sugar Bowl. It was busy, but I felt like the staff didn't care about our experience. We sat right near the door and several requests to close the open door... More

Just had lunch at Alegro. This was a lunch which was also meeting of several individuals who had met at a conference across the street. I had a shrimp poboy with a cut of gumbo. The gumbo was very bland without much flavor, the shimp poboy had good flavor but was very small. The service was terrible, it took a... More

I visited Allegro Bistro while in New Orleans. Our waiter was named Eric and he was excellent. I had the tomato basil soup and a grilled chicken salad--both were excellent! I will definitely eat here again.

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.
