If you are looking for an outstanding meal with great service this is your place. Great small local neighborhood location that is sure to impress. Don't miss the sizzling shrimp starter. Their crudo starter also always impresses. This is the place for a special meal,

We arrived here hot and sweaty after a long walk along Magazine Street. Actually a gentleman from a local church took pity on us and gave us a ride to Lilette. Thank-you, sir. We had previously dined here on our last trip to NOLA and...More
