Restaurant des Familles

Bayou des Familles, a lazy waterway home to many alligators, turtles, egrets and other wildlife, takes center stage as our restaurant's design provides its diners with a natural picture show. It's in this setting where friends and family unite to experience southern Louisiana charm and culture in its finest form. It's an experience your friends and family will not soon forget. The 17-mile journey from downtown New Orleans will take you through the Jean Lafitte National Park. You'll arrive at Restaurant des Familles and park under moss-filled century old oak trees. The restaurant's Acadian-style architecture provides a glimpse of bayou life that once was. Our menu features authentic representations of Cajun and Creole favorites such as Crawfish Etouffee, Seafood & Okra Gumbo, Grilled Redfish and Turtle Soup. Our signature dish, Alligator Stuffed Mushrooms with Alligator Sauce Piquant will tempt even the most timid diner. We look forward to your visit.

Ate late lunch after a Lafitte swamp tour. Service was prompt and polite. Food was ok, but the gumbo was thick not thin like the chef at the cooking school said it should be. The roux was also more like a flour gravy than the dark liquid.
However the shrimp and catfish poboys were both good. Shoestring Fries were especially fresh and crunchy.

District Donuts.Sliders.Brew

Reviewed By Ian S - Wallingford, Pennsylvania

Awesome lunch with the family, very excited to get to check it out. We waited in the fast moving line and secured a table during the busy lunch rush, and it was a fantastic time. My daughter had a cheeseburger slider and a fried chicken slider, with waffle fries, and wiped it all out. I decided to get the special, the Des Allemanos Fried Catfish sandwich. A sizable serving of fried catfish brushed with "so hot, you want more" sauce, bread & butter pickles and tarragon slaw. Served on a buttered and toasted housemate bun, it was a triumph of a sandwich. I had a cup of coffee, because this location is yet to serve booze. That's a shame, especially in this city. Nevertheless, the donuts were alone worth the trip. My daughter loved her chocolate glazed, and I went with a monster Cookie Butter Brudder, a donut glazed in cookie butter with biscoff cookies, chocolate cookies and chocolate chip cookies. What a delight! Awesome time!

Upperline Restaurant

Upperline Restaurant is New Orleans, LA's local haven where tasty Louisiana cuisine, serious wine, and Creole hospitality is always served.

Reviewed By airbag2011 - Sarasota, Florida

While we have been to NOLA many times over several decades this was our first trip to Upper Line.
Reservations have to be made by phone, where the owner informs you that they are not in the Quarter and you can’t walk to the restaurant and it is a cab ride away. Then she tells you that you can eat at 6:15p.m or 8:30p.m., even though you want to make a reservation weeks in advance. She is a successful institution in NOLA and she apparently couldn’t care less whether she attracted new customers or not.
It is pre fixed menu and well priced for (3) courses. Three in our party had Fried Green Tomatos with Shrimp Remoulade which everyone enjoyed. Three of us had the veal Grillades which were excellent but a microscopic portion. One of us had the Rack of Lamb and three of us had the Sundae Eugene and I had Irish coffee.
It was very good meal but hardly worth all the fuss and a taxi ride. As we were leaving regulars were greeting the owner as if she were Julia Child herself.

I had the salted caramel and turtle ice cream and it was delicious! There was a line in the shop and it is cash only but we were not disappointed. The ice cream is flavorful and creamy and the prices were reasonable. I would go back again.

Macaroons are delicious! Gelato was very good, too. Nice area with inside and outside tables. The staff is friendly and helpful in answering questions about all of the things they have to choose from. The eclairs were gorgeous and I wish I could've had a little taste of everything.

New Orleans Coffee & Beignet Co.

Reviewed By Lucky_Eddie - Toronto, Canada

Meh. We thought the chocolate would be like a cream or something inside the pastry, but instead the entire thing was as like chocolate powder mixed with the flour. It was okay, I suppose, but not exciting. Don’t see the attraction, considering how many kinds of pastries there are.

Split the chicken schnitzel sandwich and again excellent. Hot fresh cooked pita ...coming out constant..delicious!

Reviewed By Lindsbian - New Orleans, Louisiana

Great little afternoon stop for my wife, my daughter and me. I had the Lomo Bocadillo which was very nice. My wife had the Il Mostro, which was really really good. I preferred hers. My daughter had the rustic grilled cheese with bacon added. A little heavy, but it was pretty decent. They have a good Bloody Mary and a great local craft beer selection. The restaurant itself is cute. We sat outside just because it was a pretty day out but the inside decor and setup is inviting also. The prices are moderate-high so be prepared to spend $12+ on just your sandwich. It’s worth it though. Pickle plate had some great variety and flavors, highly recommend. Really great service. Great experience over all. We’ll be back!

Toast

Reviewed By Lynn W - Castle Rock, Colorado

It’s a small place with a BIG presence. Few things to know: they don’t take rezzys - look for the clipboard outside, and stay close. The wait goes pretty fast. And: the daily specials are on the butcher paper roll inside. Service is friendly and mostly efficient. Oh, and the food is fantastic!
