Mother's Restaurant

401 Poydras St, New Orleans, LA 70130
45 reviews

One of the longest lines we waited in during the New Orleans visit at near an hour wait. The line was outside alongside the building and almost into the driveway of an adjacent parking lot. When you get inside, you order in a tiny low-ceiling cafe like area, but when you really walk into the rest of the restaurant, it's ...

    Algiers Ferry

    10 reviews

    Take the ferry for the views, hangout on the other side for the history, the eats, and the local haunts. You'll find a great vibe on the West Bank. And the ride is free. What's not to love? Bring your bike and enjoy a slow ride around town and along the levee. Grab a beer at the pub. Take the ...

    Great to walk along the Mississippi river and have the town right next to you. Makes you appreciate the impact of the river and also reflect on the impact of Katrina. Enjoy a stroll to break up your day.

    Audubon Insectarium

    0.19 mi from Mother's Restaurant
    12 reviews

    Cool "bug museum" that teaches children (and adults), through interactive and informative displays, that insects are beautiful and vital members of our planets ecosystem. The test kitchen has a small selection of food items prepared with real bugs...I recommend the fried crispy cajun crickets or the juicy meal worm salsa. There is also a special room where you can interact ...

    Aquarium Of The Americas

    46 reviews

    As an animal lover this was the highlight of my vacation in New Orleans. A very nice facility with lots of opportunities to do interactive things like feeding stingrays or watching the staff doing enrichment with otters. Very nice and I will definitely come back during my next trip to NOLA.

    The Theatres at Canal Place

    0.16 mi from Mother's Restaurant
    1 review

    The only theater in New Orleans that offers in-seat dining with a menu to die for! (I highly recommend the Cookie a la Mode!) 18+ only, with amazingly roomy chairs and small intimate theaters. Great place to catch indie or art flicks, and plays host to numerous film festivals throughout the year.

    It's an's clean and it's in the same building as the Audubon Aquarium. Tickets can be purchased individually or they can come with the Audubon's zoo/aquarium/insectarium value ticket bundle (which is why I went). On a rainy day it's a nice way to pass an hour or two...

    Another NOLA spot to check out and within walking distance from almost anything in the French Quarter. After lunch, we headed here to check out a creamy pralines distributor for the wedding. This is an open air market and open daily. It's a permanent fixture so you can come any day and time you like. It's just endless with lots ...
