Sad wine list, in NOLA but no French wine? Barbeque shrimp very disappointing... overdone & mushy in a nondescript sauce, absolutely flavorless. Staff was GREAT, impecible service and no charge for my meal. Still wish they had some European wines.

A wonderful NOLA experience. Great food in a typically New Orleans fine eatery. It’s not on the drink menu, but we asked the bartender to prepare a Vesper martini, and he did, and fixed one that would have made Ian Fleming proud.

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
