    I arrived as asked for a Grey Goose Bloody Mary and the waitress kindly insisted in bring it with the house's vodka infused so I could taste the difference. Confirmed: the best Boody Marys in town!

    The French onion soup is awesome! Best I have had, ever. Also the sampler is a great choice if u want to try all the local faves. The jambalaya was the best!

    The building is old, close to three hundred years old. The waitstaff was awesome and the food pretty good. Ambience was noisy but outstanding none-the-less.

    Pierre Maspero's is a MUST when you're in NOLA. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu, especially the shrimp & grits. Ask for our girl Taranesha :)

    I lost my fried alligator virginity here. So yummy. The hurricanes are $12.50 but TRUST me it's well worth it. Did I mention the jambalaya was heaven sent? This place deserves an A+.

    Awesome! Fried green tomatoes so good! And ask for Jeremy. If you have a special diet need like me, he works on making good suggestions for what to have. Me? Redfish!
