We stopped in here for lunch while touring the WWII Museum and were pleasantly surprised. It had a nice bar area and a bright, open seating area for lunch. The food was excellent. We had sandwiches and fries, but much better than typical museum food....More

Food was very good food for a Museum! Service was good, though they were stingy enough with ice I thought I was in Europe. We didn't try The Soda Shoppe but I think American Sector was nicer.

A great place to sit down for some tasty food while you are visiting the WW II Museum. We had a burger, fries and a Coke. The fries are GREAT! Hamburger was tasty. Give the American Sector Restaurant a try.

Food, service, and decor was good. As stated by others, it was somewhat expensive. Three people had burgers and drinks and one appetizer for $77.

Huge Great Burgers, Salads and Soups. Just what you need after walking the various floors of a super attraction.

The food was good, if a little over priced. Most of our meals in New Orleans were overpriced though. The service was slow. The atmosphere was lovely. The tootsie rolls at the end were an interesting touch.

We went to the museum and because the weather was bad decided to eat at the restaurant. All of the food (there were 4 of us) was either mediocre or just plain bad. We will never go back because there are so many good restaurants...More

Arts District / Warehouse District
Once a thriving industrial zone, today this district
is home to a buzzing arts scene with an amazing
assortment of galleries, boutiques, and studios having
moved in and set up shop throughout the disused
warehouses for which the area is so well known. Much
of the art you'll come across here is local in scope,
ownership and inspiration. However, among the many old
brick warehouses are modern structures of steel and
