We've been to the Italian Barrel multiple times. Cozy little atmosphere, friendly staff and good food. Good selection if you are looking for vegetarian options.

The atmosphere is great. It’s a small restaurant. The menu reminds me of what I grew up eating. They are very knowledgeable about wine also. I will be back on my next trip.

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
