The food is good and the services is excellent, but I don't know why they're not busy. Oh and the price is good also.

We stumbled upon this having arrived late in NOLA our first evening. We had no reservations and this location was fairly empty. The restaurant itself is large, clean and the staff courteous. The prices though are somewhat steep. The menu is very limited but every...More

Since Rene Bistrot is part of the Renaissance Hotel where I'm staying, I've had breakfast daily at the bistrot during my 5 day stay. The food is pretty decent. While I can vouch only for breakfast, Rene Bistrot offers a variety of fare with local...More

Don't get the Chicken Andouille Gumbo. Too thick. Tastes like soup with bad rouxe. Smoked salmon app. Not good either. Was hoping for a better wine list too. Won't return. So glad it wasn't my money paying for the tab!

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
