I like The Gumbo Shop at 630 Saint Peter St. just off Jackson Square and Pascal’s Manale at 1838 Napolean St. for a "neighborhood" experience. I got there by taking the St. Charles Street trolley and walked the 2 blocks. This place was recommeded to me by the owner of the B&B I was staying at. It has a kind of old worldness to it and lots of old photos in the waiting area. I had very good New Orleans style barbeque shrimp and my partner had etoufee, also good. For the Gumbo Shop see link below for the menu.
