A nice restaurant just next to our hotel. Service was fast and focused in - I guess - the American way. We had two different courses, one being egg Benedikt with hollandaise and a “grand gallette” for breakfast. This was absolutely awesome.

Good morning Sherbeth, I deeply apologize but the city is always doing work, especially in the French Quarter, so phone, internet, and networks sometimes go in and out. I hope if you're still in town you come back and talk to the manager on duty...More

Went there for dinner. Had great service and great food! This place has true New Orleans history as well. You really can’t go wrong with anything you order. The jambalaya was good and, of course, save room for the drink of the day and dessert!

We went on a Friday night in the middle of Spring Break. The food, drinks and service were amazing, in particular the hurricanes and the blackened shrimp. Ambiance was great too. Prices a little too high, but not crazy.

We stayed at the Omni across the street from Pierre Maspero's and stopped in here for breakfast one morning. We were seated right away, service was a little slow, but the food was very good. Good bloody mary too.

across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
