Best grilled redfish I have ever had.. Great potato and leek soup. Three course menu also has dessert. Even with a cocktail and wine, two people eat the best food in New Orleans for $100.

Service with a smile and attention to detail are hallmarks of Chef Brigtsen's restaurant. To cool the heat outside, I started with a Pimm's Cup Cocktail that was ever so refreshing. The Celebrity Creole Tomato Salad was my first experience tasting Creole tomatoes and it...More

Very much their own self sufficient unit within the
greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down

fun. Two of the liveliest thoroughfares for nightlife
and socializing (and yes of course more of the city’s
