Went for dinner with total of three couples. The table we sat at was sort of right in the middle of traffic without enough space really to be comfortable. Service was good and friendly. The food was average (although the crab beignets were outstanding). Around...More

Head to the Garden District for the full-on New
Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking
