Tableau is our usual friday spot. They have a great happy hour at the bars downstairs or upstairs. It's by Jackson Square so you get to experience all the festive sounds. It's also a hop skip away from Cafe Du Monde!
I might be chopped for this but I think Morning Call's beignets and cafe au lait are slightly better than Cafe Du Monde's. There's also never a wait so that's a huge plus. Don't get me wrong though, I still love me some CDM. Featuring
1000 Figs is a relatively new restaurant that Beau told me about and it's really cute. It's got an earthy, Portland vibe. The space is small so it feels intimate.
The New Orleans Museum of Art is beautiful. It's the oldest art institute in New Orleans started in 1911. They also have a sculpture garden with 200 year-old live oak trees. It also takes you straight to Morning Call for more beignets!
Cane & Table is chill with another great happy hour. They also have bottomless bloody's and mimosas on brunch so haaay!
