Felix's is a staple in New Orleans that I always visit on my trips. Their chargrilled oysters are amazing. Skip the long line at ACME (which has more tourist traffic) across the street. You will like the delicious food and vibrant atmosphere at Felix's. They...More

Poor Felix. It just can't escape the shadow of Acme across the street. However, locals and this reviewer will tell you there is little if any difference in the food served at both locations. The real difference is not having to stand in line for...More

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
