Along side Jackson Square this busy restaurant offered fast service, good food and great air conditioning on a hot day! A nice spot to watch the local artist and people watch!

We ate here for an early dinner. When we came in the restaurant was pretty bare, but we thought it was because we were eating a little before the dinner hour. That should have been our warning. My food was actually pretty good (the NOLA...More
