Seasons 52 is a fresh grill and wine bar that offers a seasonally changing menu inspired by the appeal of a local farmer’s market. Seasons 52 sources ingredients at their peak of freshness and uses rustic cooking techniques, like brick-oven roasting and open-fire grilling over oak and mesquite wood to bring out the natural flavors of food. The menu is paired with an ever-changing international collection of more than 100 wines, with 52 available by the glass, along with exceptional signature handcrafted cocktails. <br /><br />Open for lunch and dinner daily, with extended hours on the weekend. <br /><br />If you are searching for a place to host your next group function, Seasons 52 is the perfect setting for your private or semi-private event. We also feature a Chef’s table for smaller groups or more intimate settings. For more information, visit our website at www.Seasons52.com.<br /><br /><br />

"But disappointed. Service was slow, and dishes --had about 8 between our whole party--were beautiful in presentation, but not very interesting in terms of flavors or technique."

The experienced Culinary team of Chefs John R. Mannino & John M. Mannino (Father & Son Respectively) have partnered with Sommelier Daris Gavin to open New "Olde World Style" Italian Bistros. The goal was to give patrons Great Italian food at a reasonable price point with wine choices to match. We… are sure that the Mannino’s Italian Bistro Family will work with great passion & attention to detail to try and ensure that our guest develop a sense of home and comfort while enjoying their dining experience. John R. spent time at many restaurants both locally (Nicholas’ at the Omni, La Bella Italia, Café Society {Executive Chef}, Bodegas & 456 Fish) and nationally (Lacey’s Restaurant/ Manhattan & East of Athens/ Long Island). John M Mannino is an Honors Graduate of Culinary Institute of America. He was the Executive Chef of Bodega & 4 5 6 Fish prior to opening Mannino's. John M also won the Inaugural 2012 Taste of Hamptonroads Iron Chef competition.

From its first day, Emeril's Restaurant & the multitalented man who reinvents it with every meal became the focus of ecstatic praise. A decade after Emeril's Restaurant exploded onto the culinary scene, Emeril's has evolved & transformed itself for the 21st century by updating its flagship restaurant. Completed in 2000, the innovative details reflect the significance of the warehouse district location, new New Orleans cuisine & Emeril’s extensive wine list. The Food Bar is framed by a tapestry of glass encased spices showcasing the bold & creative flavors that Chef Emeril features. Emeril's state of the art kitchen is visible from the main dining room. Although walk-ins can be accommodated, reservations are highly recommended. Our dress policy is casual with no sleeveless shirts for men, no hats or flip flops. David Slater, Chef de Cuisine, and Kevin Delaune, General Manager, are dedicated to providing you with that memorable dining experience.

Please note that the courtyard is seated on a first come, first serve basis. A reservation does not guarantee seating in the courtyard but we will have a table available inside our beautiful, historic carriage house. If you have a preference for either, let us know when making your reservation.<br /><br />We normally allow reservation space for only 50% of the dining room to accommodate walk-ins. <br /><br />Nestled in the historic 150-year-old Princess of Monaco Courtyard and Carriage House on Royal Street in the French Quarter, Café Amelie is a rare combination of superb Louisiana fare served in a lush, enchanting New Orleans courtyard setting.<br /><br />Café Amelie has a full bar offering an array of signature cocktail creations. Café Amelie and the accompanying Princess of Monaco Courtyard are also available for private parties, weddings and receptions.

 Sbisa's
Sbisa's
Café Sbisa, located in the French Market area of the Vieux Carre, was founded by the Sbisa family in 1899. It was amongst many restaurant and coffee houses in the thriving port and financial district of the old French city. Today, it remains as a symbol of the past, still serving excellent New Orleans libation, as well as, classic creole cuisine. <br /><br />Patrons at Sbisa will note that Chef Pedranti’s menu pays tribute to the classic creole dishes of New Orleans while giving a modern spin to the amazing southern dishes on the Gulf Coast. “Many of the great creole dishes that are found today in New Orleans restaurants began at Sbisa,” according to Pedranti. “As such, our culinary goal is to honor our historic roots with a modern disposition.”<br /><br />
