We had a great breakfast/brunch at M Bistro. Prices were a bit high for portion sizes, however I think I had the best Boudin I've ever had. We also tried the bananas foster french toast which was delicious.

In a city with 738 restaurants, some world renowned, the competition is quite keen. The M Bistro, located as at the Ritz-Carlton would never survive without riding the coat tails of a major luxury chain hotel. While it serves a very respectable breakfast buffet, it...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

touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
