    There's a small bar at the top of the stairs, go enjoy a quiet drink up there before/after food in the bustling dining room & chat with the bartender, always get at least fun conversation.

    Classic high end New Orleans food and atmosphere. A cross between 5 star elegance and a place where you walk and talk to folks. The Poisson Meunière Amandine and Oysters Rockefeller are to die for.

    Get here early on Friday for lunch, because you'll be dining with the New Orleans business elite. French-Creole classics are on the menu here, like thick, peppery gumbo and steak with bearnaise sauce.
