The Treme stalwart is often packed after a featured roll on the HBO series Treme, but it doesn’t detract from any of its low-key charm. A minimal cover charge includes a bowl of red beans and rice, and when the Treme Brass Band is playing on Wednesday nights, don’t expect to stay in your seat for too long.

What to drink
This is the spot to grab a classic New Orleans “set-up” which involves purchasing a half-pint of booze, a bucket of ice and a mixer of your choice as a kind of “build your own” drinking experience.
Wednesday night is the night, but bands play six nights a week. Check the local radio station 90.7 FM for the night’s performance.
