In an attempt to control the rampant prostitution in New Orleans in the early 1900′s, the City Council legalized prostitution in 1898 in a 38-block area of the French Corner. Dubbed, “Storyville,” after the council member who proposed the idea; the area remained a red light district until 1917. Photographer E.J. Bellocq, secretly documented the prostitutes in Storyville and later published them in a book "E.J. Bellocq Storyville Portraits".

Breakfast and lunch nearby (with veggie options!)

Surrey's Cafe & Juice Bar

Bayona- New Orleans. Chef Susan Spicer is simply the best there is.

There is no better way to spend a Friday lunch -- or really a Friday afternoon -- than at Galatoire's. Amazing classic food such as pommes souffles and fish with crabmeat sauce.

New Orleans - A must visit (either breakfast or late night). Delicious beignets, or fried donuts covered with powdered sugar, and café latte. A New Orleans institution. This place is fabulous - you must make a stop here.

Café Du Monde - French Quarter - New Orleans, LA

New Orleans - Brigtsen’s is a jewel of a restaurant located along the riverbend in Uptown – a 15-minute cab ride well worth taking. The restaurant has a charming, laid-back feel and serves primarily a locals crowd. The food is out of this world. Highlights include the seafood platter (with a sampling of 6 seafood specialties), roast duck with cornbread dressing and honey pecan gravy, and prime beef tournedous. Dinner:
