Nice place to sit and watch the crowds. Food is average. Had a shrimp poboy that was tasty, but on the small side. Frozen Margerita was lovely

We were staying in the hotel across the street, and we ate lunch and dinner at Lucy's. The restaurant caters to a young crowd (and we are not that), so it is noisier than we like. The fact that we went back is due to satisfaction with the food and the fact that we didn't see any place else real... More

We visited here about 18 months ago and made a point to return on this visit. It is a fun bar scene, with rather good food. I had a house salad with grilled shrimp and my husband had the club sandwich. They were both good. The club sandwich was quite a generous size. The prices are moderate.

It was taco Tuesday at Lucy's. The tacos are ordinary but that's ok.. they were also very cheap!! I usually eat the shrimp and grits or the tuna and both of those dishes are amazing. I recommend the shark bite drink. It's fun!! Best of all is your dog is welcome.. indoor and outdoors!! And they have a puppy menu!!!... More

Ate at Lucy's on super bowl Sunday while in town for business and when we first arrived it was not very busy, but obviously got a little busier as it got towards the game starting. Surprisingly service was slow the whole time. Our server was not overly interactive during our time there, which normally I would say was due to... More

First it is challenging to find entrance as the sidewalk is torn up for renovation and is fenced off. Restaurant seems geared to younger set and would be a fun place for drinks and casual food, I ordered small Caesar salad with fried oysters which was nice size. Lettuce could have been a lot fresher but oysters were nice.

We dropped into Lucy's for lunch on the way to the World War II Museum. Who heard of surfing in New Orleans? I enjoyed red beans with rice and sausage and my wife ate a shrimp poor boy washed down with local beers. Both meals were nicely prepared and very tasty. When you are hungry, everything tastes good. Our server,... More

If you're staying in the business district you're a short walk from Lucy's. Try the Shark Attack and you'll have a souvenir to take home.

Great local feel. Some outdoor seating. Staff was very nice. Calamari with Thai chili sauce is great. So is the key lime pie (served in a martini glass).

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title might suggest that this area is all about business and little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you away from the Central Business District. The CBD offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.
