Secluded place in the French Quarter, with discounted parking. Doesn't advertise much; doesn't have to. Went on an "off" day/time with a friend. Service and food were excellent.

Dined here on a Saturday. Had a nice table, not always the case for 1! Not facing a wall etc. Service good and helpful, menu choice and food quality great. Baked oysters were fantastic.

In a quiet (for French Quarter) position in pedestrian only throughway. We sat outside on a warm evening which was a great change from air-conditioned required by many restaurants in area. Service was good and food above average (wife particularly loved her ravioli starter).

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

The Pelican Club, offering a wide range of fabulous New Orleans dishes, consists of three dining rooms and a large bar fashioned from a handsome, 19th-century French Quarter townhouse, rising from the corner of Bienville Street and Exchange Place in the heart of the French Quarter. Owner, Richard Hughes, and his wife, Jean Stinnett-Hughes, transformed a neglected architectural gem into a welcoming restaurant decorated in a crisp blend of traditional and contemporary. Each room has its own ambiance, created with such diverse elements as burnished Louisiana cypress, contemporary paintings by New Orleans artists, antique prints, and the dramatic contrast of black-leather banquettes against cream-colored brick walls. Such an atmosphere is sure to make your meal feel like a truly New Orleans experience.
