Overview

Had the JOY of a second visit to this amazing little restaurant. Way off the beaten track, Jacques-Imo's is a treasure in disguise. The crazy painted sidewalk at this storefront location is often an alternative dining spot, as is the gangway between buildings. No matter--the strange premises belie the amazing delights created by Chef Jacques. My group of somewhat fearful diners were all hushed by their first tastes of Shrimp and Alligator Sausage Cheesecake, Mussels in an amazing infused broth, Fried Oysters that melted in your mouth--just to name a few. Entrees are accompanied by the house salad--a plate blazing with a wide variety of fresh sald greens, glazed with the house vinaigrette. You don't or...Read More

I was very lucky to arrive before the crowds, and had a fantastic wide room with a view to the River. Entry closet, small desk, sitting area, King bed, and huge closet and bathroom. The air conditioning thermostat was in the hall--a little strange, but the manager figured it all out for me. Wonderful courtyard to enjoy day or night, continental breakfast, and a free drink each night at the funky little Marie Laveau bar off the inner courtyard. Easy walk to everything too, and at a great price. This is part of the New Orleans Boutique Hotel group--definitely worth a visit.

Go early [8 am] to the French Market. Walk through the narrow aisles, rub shoulders with the locals, see [and buy] beautiful fresh fruit, garlic braids, amazing creole and cajun spice packages, fresh crop pecans, and best of all--beautiful fresh seafood. My last stop of any trip to NOLA is to the French Market for seafood, packed in ice, ready to fly home with me. It is a nice treat to share with your homebound spouse or significant other--a fresh seafood dinner. The shrimp I bought on Tuesday were less than an hour off the boat, the crabs were already cooked. They had prawns the size of your hand too. Fresh Key Limes, Georgia peaches the size of two fists--needless to say, if you like to cook, or jus...Read More
