“Green Goddess is a French Quarter vegetarian/vegan "piazza café dining experience" in Exchange Alley. It's limited seating, historic architecture will charm you. Exchange Alley is also a popular space for wedding couples to take pre-wedding photos. My favorites are the beet hummus and Chimichurri mushrooms with purple rice, horseradish creme, and plantains.”

Bar

“This bar is tucked in the W Hotel. I'd consider it a hidden gem with some of the best cocktails the city has to offer! On Sundays, they host Legs & Eggs - a Burlesque-style brunch, that is certainly worth checking out. Also home to one of the best happy hours! Menu is offered daily from 4-6 & includes snacks!”
