Enjoy some of the best drinks paired with amazing food. Don't miss the small plates and great service. This is a place to visit if your coming to New Orleans. Very much an upscale neighborhood location. Very charming and great music to top it off.

If I understand correctly, this is run by the same folks who operate Lilette (which is a great restaurant), and it reflects a similar attention to easy-going but classy detail. The drinks and wine list are superb, but the surprise is the quality of the...More

Great little tavern/bar. Interesting cocktail selection, very innovative. Good wine list by the glass, and a really intriguing list of snacks and appetizers like beef marrow butter brioche tye or roasted fennel ricotta brioche tye. Also nice cheeses and salamis

Really fun date spot. The drinks and service are always great. I highly recommend. The deviled eggs are well worth the trip alone. I would also say the wine list is a little more eclectic, but everything is really good.

Head to the Garden District for the full-on New
Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking
streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions,
picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded
down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful
