French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living

Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great

Actually, we went and we brought our wine with us. Worked out perfectly and the corkage fee was a modest $15. Of course we would not do this if ordering from the menu but it was a special bottle.
