We went to many places for dinner and definitely wanted to try one of Emerils. This was not our favorite. It was good, with absolutely superb service. Food was alright. Wouldn’t return. There are just too many great places to choose from.

French Quarter
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
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
