We had the shrimp plate and it was great. Lots of shrimp and very well cooked. The salad before was a really nice addition. We will return.

Right on Decatur bottom of the hill from the Natchez is Cafe Maspero -- my fave muffalettas and deli po-boys in New Orleans. Huge po-boys and fries on the side -- bottomless drinks and good good good service -- parking is tricky -- be careful

The location of the cafe is great, on Decatur Street. The food is decent, with the typical creole/Cajun selection. Price is moderate, service is average. Overall, not the best, but not a bad place to have a meal near Jackson Square.

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
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

Yes this is the restaurant and there are times you may encounter lines to get in. I will add however that their staff is very good at getting people in and out pretty quickly. The best times for me is when it first opens... More
