Laissez les bons temps rouler!

First night in NoLa and it was everything that I wanted...warm night with a soft cool breeze making for a perfect night to take a stroll in the French Quarter to find dinner. NoLa unlike any other city I have been to has this beat that seems to set the rhythm and pace that everyone dances to-tourists are not immune to this inviting rhythm. I think that's what makes NoLa so special...without knowing it you fall under it's spell and you feel at home.

The French Quarter or simply the "Quarter" is comprised of a compact 13 block radius where you will find restaurants, shops, markets, live music and yes yes bars! I set out on Canal Street and made my way down Royal Street the cool thing I like about the Quarter is that the streets are clearly marked so you never feel lost. As I made my way down Royal I decided I wanted oysters for dinner...I mean it's NoLa!!

I didn't have to look to far, right in front of me I found Royal Street Oyster House and judging from the line outside I knew I had found something worth trying.

The Royal House Oyster Bar was a good find I ordered the Charbroiled Oysters. Yes, Charbroiled and it was perfection.

Sadly, the rest of the meal wasn't that great...sorry NoLa but dinner was a bust! I know I talked with my server and he said that it was really busy tonight the kitchen was short staffed and everything that could go wrong, did go wrong...and it showed. But I didn't let that ruin my evening...I'm in NoLa!

After an uneventful first night dinner...I checked out a few places and took in the vibe and music.

That was the best part of the evening just feeling like a local and making my way back to my hotel to take it all in and share it with you my network friends.

Good Night!
