Good was excellent as it has been every time. Whenever we visit NOLA, Mr. B’s is on our list. Our wait person this time (Christina) was a bit on the slow and less attentive side, but all in all a great dinner.

The shrimp was over the top A SALTY!!!! The waitress asked ahead whether I had dietary concerns and I already told her I can’t do too much salt. Why didn’t she tell me before I ordered that the shrimp was salty? Secondly I asked if they had herbal non-caffeinated tea and she names two that contained caffeine. She needs more education regarding the menu. Not enough to just be courteous.

Excellent jazz brunch! Loved the deviled eggs, chicken and waffles, Josephine Benedict, and the bottomless mimosas. Excellent service from Lydia and James. I loved the decor and ambiance of the back room. We look forward to another great brunch.

Morrow's was very good. The food was excellent. For a large group, they were accommodating, and the food came out in a timely manner. The drinks are expensive (i.e. $25 Espresso Martini), especially for New Orleans. As a New Yorker, I have never paid $25 for a martini of any kind.The next time, I will just drink alcohol elsewhere.
