Bistro at Maison de Ville
For mouth-watering French cuisine in an intimate setting, look no further than the Bistro at Maison de Ville. An array of well-heeled eccentrics, sophisticated artists, and international travellers manage to live in the French Quarter whilst avoiding the throngs of tourists – and dining at The Bistro at Maison de Ville is the kind of thing they do. This intimate restaurant attached to the Hotel Maison de Ville strikes a European pose with its art collection, wood-paneled walls and red leather banquettes. Chef Greg Picolo is one of New Orleans’ oft-overlooked treasures. He cooks in a classical French style with a detour through the Louisiana countryside. His frog legs are famous among serious diners, his skill with fish is unmatched, and his crème brûlée is the best in town.
