This is a place to eat at primarily for the experience of a restaurant like it. Men are required to wear suit jackets after 5 pm, if you don't have one they can provide one for you. The servers are so classy and incredibly courteous....More

Truly a Bucket list item. A little bit expensive , a lot of fun, don't go if you are in a hurry. It's worth the wait in line on a Friday

Never disappointed dining here. Started patronizing Galatoire's 35 yrs ago and have always had wonderful food and service. This is the restaurant you bring your friends from the east and west coast to experience real New Orleans food. Just order the Godchaux salad, stuffed Eggplant,...More

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
