Jamila's serves Tunisian food, which is excellent. This is owned by a family. The wife cooks. The husband works the dining room and is very charming and gracious. It is a small restaurant in Uptown New Orleans and is a fun, and delicious experience.

the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate
feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the
students living in the area ensure that Uptown and
Carrollton stay youthful, cosmopolitan and vibrantly
