We had dinner at one of the sidewalk tables over the busy new year's weekend. We called ahead the same day for a reservation and were promptly seated. Wait staff was courteous and knowledgeable and prompt. My wife had an excellent steak and I had...More

We ate at Herbsaint having stumbled across it by chance. I'm so glad we did. It's a 10 minute walk away from the craziness of Bourbon and the tourist traps on Canal and well worth the walk. Full of locals, the food was fantastic -...More

EVERYTHING was delicious! My daughter order a finger licking homemade pasta with a fried egg that I tried to steal...so good. The gumbo is the best I've ever tried...order a bunch of small dishes because we couldn't get enough!

business lunch, opted for the small plates selections, saw the above listed item and it underpromised and wildly overdelivered. The housemade spaghetti with Guanciale was just perfect, but the fried-poached farm egg served over it was divine and when sliced open, the yolk was the...More

This place can always be counted on for a fine meal.I had the trout special which was served over spinach and it was divine. Moist and flaky. Service was a little slow but the place was packed. Not cheap but worth every penny.

I consider myself an amateur foodie and my husband is not. But since I wanted to go, he toughed it out. There was more on the menu for me than him. I had catfish and green rice - perfection. My husband, who doesn't have a...More

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
away from the Central Business District. The CBD
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
