New Orleans, Louisiana
Additional Location Information
The Mid City neighborhood is unique in New Orleans in many ways. First it is centrally located and a hub to which you have easy access to all parts of the city including having convenient interstate access for those arriving by car or to the airport. Our B & B is 3 minutes from the entrance/exit off I-10.
Mid City was hit very hard during Katrina and was heavily flooded for weeks but, not only has it's prior character been restored, there has been a renaissance of restaurants, retail shops, groceries, bars, pubs, nightclubs, parks, amenities, and attractions that have added renewed vigor and charm to the community. In addition homes and neighborhoods have seen a regrowth largely surpassing the colorful landscape before the flood.
We have gathered menus from all over the area and recommend consulting "Yelp", "Urbanspoon", AroundMe", "Open Table", or other widely available smartphone apps to assist you in familiarizing yourself with the area.
There is Mandina's right across the street for well over 100 years serving fantastic Creole Cuisine of the highest order at reasonable prices. Around the corner is one hundred year old fifth generation Angelo Brocato's Gelatoria famous for homemade gelato, ice cream, macaroons, pastries and more. You will find 3 great breakfast/brunch options all within a block in three directions where you can dine outdoors. There are Mexican, Vietnamese, Bistro, Philippino, Chinese, Traditional Po Boy, Pizza, Lebanese, Turkish, Coffee shops, French fine dining, BBQ, Italian,Jamaican, Sushi, and so so much more and much of it available for delivery.
Mid City is home to The New Orleans Museum of Art which features local and international exhibits. It is located at the grand entrance of our sprawling City Park which reaches almost to the shore of Lake Ponchatrain and is laced with bayous with kayaks to row around, nature trails, and outdoor exhibits of South Louisiana flora and fauna, and is a bird watchers paradise rare in an urban American setting. The Mississippi flyway for birds and wildlife transiting from the far northern reaches of North America to the South American Continent makes City Park and Bayou St. John running along it's eastern side a place to see bald eagles, herons, egrets, hawks, and numerous waterfowl. The park also contains a 24 hour coffee and beignet indoor/outdoor cafe, The Morning Call, itself a 140 year old local tradition.
Mid City is home to the the Pitot House along Bayou St. John built in 1799 and home to the first American Mayor of the city and later to Mother Cabrini, America's first Catholic saint.
There is so much to say about Mid City and it's place in New Orleans that you simply must come and visit it for yourself.
