Historic. In the French Quarter, this large historical dining courtyard has a daily jazz brunch buffet from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Traditional French-Creole cuisine such as shrimp étouffée, veal grillade with corn grits and bread pudding with whiskey sauce are the specialties. Entrées on the four-course dinner menu include veal Oscar, duck à l'orange and shrimp and grits. A la carte choices are also available. After dark the lighted trees in the courtyard add an enchanting touch.
