We went to several restaurants and was expecting just this exceptional taste everywhere we went. I wasn't disappointed but not pleased until lunch at J's. We just happened upon it and we're super happy. Everything was fresh and very good. Give it a try. You...More

Can't go wrong with fresh oysters. We also had the shrimp tacos and the seafood quesadilla. It was really good. Great to eat a snack while you wander around the market.

The best shrimp boil I had while in NOLA. Paired it with a handmade bloody mary from the stand next door. A wonderful snack stop while touring the market!

So this is a small stand in the middle of the French market. They shuck them right in front of you. The crawfish was spice and amazing. Good prices too.

We got shrimp tacos, seafood quesadilla (shrimp. Crab, crayfish...oh my!), jambalaya. Everything was great, didn't think you could find this at a small restaurant. It's in French market in the French Quarter where the restaurants are. seafood was so fresh and flavorful!

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living

story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
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
