Our final day in NOLA, had a wonderful lunch at this restaurant. The shrimp were the biggest and best I have ever had, and believe me, as a Floridian, we do shrimp. Steak is also wonderful. Highly recommend.

This was my favorite dish during my short visit. Absolutely delicious. The breading and the sauce make these oysters perfect.

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
