    Excellent meal! From the pre dinner cocktails all the way through to dessert at the end, we really enjoyed our first dining experience from Mr B’s bistro. The mahi mahi was excellent & the seafood jambalaya delicious. We shared the strawberry cake for dessert & loved it! Everything was delicious and well prepared. I would definitely recommend Mr. B’s & we will be back the next time we are in New Orleans!

    Our server was the best staff member you have, and you should be very pleased that she works for your organization. I did not like sitting outside under a plastic tent, but the food was good, and I'm not sure I agreed that the value matched the ambience, I would've preferred to be inside with the atmosphere.

    I had the oysters and escargot. They were delicious. This is my second time at Luke’s and had the shrimp and grits again and it is still great. My wife had the duck and was wonderful. The dark chocolate cake was great. I have been to New Orleans twice and Luke is a must go. Food and service are great. Everyone is friendly.

    I ate here 10 years ago. It was one of the best meals of my life. So when I came back to Nola, I had to come back. Long story short, it did not disappoint.

Discover New Orleans

French, Spanish and Creole influences evolved New Orleans cuisine into a genre all its own. Combine Gulf coast seafood, a butter-based sauce and Cajun spices, and you’re looking at a classic Nola dish. Take the famed crawfish boil, for instance, which locals advise is best eaten as a family. In the aftermath of hurricane Katrina, the restaurant industry banded together to support their city in the wake of serious devastation. New restaurants began opening their doors, and today you’ll find a wealth of cuisines that span the classics to modern reinventions to everything in between.
