Description of Restaurant:

This is the restaurant you wish was in your neighborhood -- "Nawlins" attitude with an open kitchen that rocks and socks your taste buds.

Meet up in the high energy lounge.  Hanging whimsical chandeliers entice you to have fun, maybe even try the house drink -- "Sazerac", said to be the US first cocktail, made with rye whiskey, peychaud bitters, simple syrup swirled together. A reason for a parade!!

Whatever you do, do not, I repeat do not pass up Sazerac's gumbo -- by far one of the best, if not the best, I have tasted in the world.

RUN don't walk to Sazerac and see what I mean!!
