About the restaurant
Downtown New Orleans Restaurant + Bar
Light. Bright. Authentic. Magnetic. A meal with us is the best version of a French brasserie, imbued with the distinctive flavors of the Gulf and the peerless techniques that set these classic dishes apart. No tweezers; no dim lights; just beautifully fresh ingredients, celebrated for their unique flavors and textures.

Enjoyed a lovely meal here for my husband’s birthday. Greeting, service and food were great. I tried the broiled oysters and ramp & shrimp risotto and my husband enjoyed the prix fixe menu. My only complaint is about the noise level. I prefer a setting where I can have a conversation without having to raise my voice to be heard across the table.

About the restaurant
Desi Vega, Rodney Salvaggio, Paul Varisco and staff, invite you to join them for a "memorable dining experience" at what food critic Tom Fitzmorris calls "The Best Steakhouse in the City." With regular visits from the Saints players and owners, most weekends are sold out. Mr. John's convenient location on historical St. Charles Avenue and valet parking makes for a pleasurable evening in the city!

About the restaurant
The truth is, you don't become a Louisiana favorite just by putting the word "authentic" on your sign. When you've served Cajun meals as long as we have, you learn the difference between real food and a bland imitation, and our guests know it too. Grilled, fried or on ice-there's time cooked into every dish and time spent on every home cooked recipe, so that every aroma, every bite, every sip and every gathering is memorable. We've spent more than 80 years creating a recipe for something much greater than a place for a lunch break or night out. It's a place to share (or keep the whole plate to yourself), a place where you always have a seat ready at the table and a place where you're always part of the family.

Wonderful dining experience. Food and wine were perfect. Krystal, our server, became a friend. Highly recommend and we will return, especially on a Thursday when the wine is 50% off.
