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 ...

    Luke is a restaurant I frequent.... John Besh one of New Orleans renown chef's owns it. It has great Brunch Saturday and Sunday with eggs in a pot (with crab grits and hollandaise) and their Mimi's Pancakes with honey pecan butter are my favorites! At 3pm they begin a Happy Hour all week long with 50 cent fresh oysters and ...

    Drago's at Hilton New Orleans Riverside

    0.2 mi from Mother's Restaurant
    7 reviews

    It’s a lesser-known fact that the Croatian peoples who immigrated to the Gulf Coast area helped to found some of the strongest fishing communities in the outlying areas surrounding New Orleans. They’re especially known for their skills as oystermen, and in 1969, Drago Cvitanovich drew from this community of knowledge and experience to found his own restaurant. When Drago’s son, ...

    Bon Ton Cafe

    4 reviews

    Our waiter referred to the Bon Ton Cafe's offerings as Country Cajun. That probably means different things to different people. But the first thing I noticed was plenty of tempting selection that wasn't deep fried. I ordered Bayou Jambalaya for an appetizer and Eggplant, Shrimp And Crabmeat Etouffee for the main course and both were drop dead delicious. That went ...

    Good food with a sports bar feel. A great place for an after work libation or non formal meal.

    With 1010 rooms, a behemonth lobby, and a $44 million renovation underway, the Sheraton on Canal Street is a Big Cheese in the world of New Orleans hotels. As soon as you walk into the sprawling lobby and see the cocktail lounge in the middle, a lovely scent wafts your way, and stays with you throughout your visit. It’s all ...

    Live music + clambake! Lobsters, crab legs, clams, mussels, corn, potatoes, shrimp, and crawfish. It takes a bit of work to eat, but who doesn't enjoy a big bowl of shellfish? Bring your appetite, because a boiling pot for two really serves 3-4 people. It's right by the Riverwalk and the Audubon Aquarium, so it's easy to drop in for ...

    The french fries, mac and cheese, and burgers are where its at. I got the fish tacos and I could have gone with something else. The location is nice right near the court house. The crowd is young professionals. The other bad thing about Capdeville is the time for them to get the food out. The service is fine, but ...

    180 reviews

    Nom nom nom! A trip to New Orleans isn't complete until you've had at least one serving of Cafe Du Monde's legendary beignets. PRO TIP: The cafe is open 24/7, so you can avoid the crowds by stopping in later at night. Just try to be careful if you bring a bag back to the hotel, or you'll end up ...

    Be forewarned: Their muffuletta sandwich is a MONSTER. Don't be overzealous and order a whole sandwich to yourself. Or even half for that matter. You should only be able to stomach a quarter of one, the rest to be shared with 3 other friends. Expect there to be a crowd here, but not a long wait. Since it is a ...

    Acme Oyster House

    Pretty much one of the most popular restaurants that you'll find on Bourbon. This could be a tourist trap, but it could also be a food win. My take is that if you are going to travel 2000 miles, might as well not miss the party. A line outside comprised mostly of out-of-state Asians confirms that everyone is in the ...

    Hands down the most savory meat dish I've had in NOLA. Worth the price and the wait!!! GET THE ONE WITH PORK or DUCK!!!! I also heard the owner had another restaurant where they specialize in fish. It's located behind their fancy restaurant. It's more chill and hipster-ish. Their cocktails are yummy too. Wish they had this in LA.

    Antoine's Restaurant

    14 reviews

    It was 1840 when a young Antoine Alciatore founded what would eventually become one of the country’s oldest, family-run restaurants. In 1887, Antoine’s son, Jules, would take over the reins of the family’s fine-dining establishment and invent their famous Oysters Rockefeller recipe in his kitchen. Even though Antoine took ill in 1874 and died back in Marseilles, the chefs and ...
