Stand in line and be ready to order when it is your turn. If it is raining, have someone scout a table while you on in line. If not, take it to go and walk to the mighty Mississippi and eat on a park bench....More

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

well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
