Do not waste your time. Every person I encountered here was rude and condescending. Can't really comment on the food since they flat out refused to let me buy anything. Not to my room, not to go, not to eat at a bar table. "It's...More

Had breakfast with my family. What a great experience. William, our waiter, was so accommodating and personable. He made us feel like we were being welcomed into his home. Oh, the food was excellent too!

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

Breakfast is casual. We did not eat dinner there but did have drinks at the bar and lounge. We did not see anyone in very casual clothing. So if not long pants then dress shorts. Hope this helps.
