Hi Alheini, Unless you're comparing our food to fast food, the last thing we are is "pricey." Our average meal ticket for lunch is under $15 including tax. For dinner it's under $20. Considering the quality of the ingredients we're using, (local seafood, wild boar,...More

So good. The rico sandwhich is a must have and the quinoa and black bean salad with coconut lime dressing was delicious. I would highly recommend stopping here.

Had lunch here and it was great! They offer daily special. Today was a vegetarian jambalaya and it was fabulous. I had creviche (not vegetarian of course) and it was one of the best I have had. Very relaxing atmosphere.

Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other
parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title
might suggest that this area is all about business and
little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you

offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts
