    I spy roaches. Strange music selection too, but the Pimm's Cup and Sazerac are damn good.

    Stick to the NOLA classics: jambalaya and muffuletta with a Pimms Cup, to stay safe on menu.

    Once you are in, you feel you have a time travel to 200+ years ago. The people are mostly welcoming and accommodating. The muffuletta was good, along with the always-good Zapps chips.

    The whole muffuletta can be shared up to 4 people. Then just order other sides to share such as the rich and awesome gumbo!

    The muffuletta is great. Also enjoyed my Pimm's cup and the cheese platter. I didn't care for the jambalaya, but I find restaurants have problems getting that right.

    Bruce was an amazing waiter. He guided us to their famous Pimms cup, slight variations, and entrees. Loved the jambalaya, and my girlfriend had an amazing po boy with beans/rice. A great spot! Great $

    Ask for a Pimm's Cup, be polite, and enjoy one of the best cocktails in New Orleans. Ask for a Pimm's Rose or any other misguided, stupid or confused ordering you might as well go back to Bourbon St.
