I know this is no news flash – but I just love being in the French Quarter. Especially this time of year when the weather is so nice and people are everywhere. April is a great month in the Crescent City and people come in droves for the festivals as well as for normal NOLA fun.
For me, normal NOLA fun means hanging out with my “Quarter Rat” buds. Part of our routine is trying out the varied but amazing eateries scattered throughout the Vieux Carre. We are all about the food. Yea you right!
In all of our “rattin’ “ (roaming around the Quarter) sometimes we lose track of time and even in the Quarter some places close. Imagine that! Not to worry. At Déjàvu Bar and Diner anytime is a good time because they are open 24 hours a day. Located on the corner of Dauphine Street and Conti (one block off of Bourbon Street) it is a great place to get off your feet and kick back for a while.
The menu holds something for everyone. The Crawfish, corn and crab bisque is really yummy. Salads, burgers, po’boys and plates like hamburger steak, roast and red beans are but a sampling of the good ole comfort food that Pixie (our favorite waitress) will carry out to you. There are featured specials like Steak Night and Spaghetti Night. The prices are as easy to swallow as their famous Bloody Marys too.
The juke box is jammin’ , the bar is open and there are video poker games if you want a little more to do than eat. Check out Déjà vu at 400 Dauphine next time you are in the area. Like I said, anytime is a good time. See you soon.
