And a fun Italian restaurant. I stop at least once every time I visit New Orleans. It is small so you may have a wait but as others have said it's worth it.

A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
