Cafe Maspero

Cafe Maspero, for super casual dining on French onion soup and giant sandwiches. A few years back, somebody cleaned up the place, which is good, but they also reduced the portion sizes, which honestly is also good since there was too much food before… -Rich Collins News Editor, BizNewOrleans.com

Napoleon House

Napoleon House is my sentimental favorite because it’s the first place we tried in the Quarter when we moved to the city. Sitting in their little courtyard with a Pimm’s Cup and a muffuletta fills my soul. -Kim Singletary Editor, Biz New Orleans
