Fodor's Review

Those who wonder if there really is a New Orleans restaurant that can properly cater to both tourists and locals need look no farther than Mr. B's. Using as many Louisiana ingredients as possible, the chef offers a standout braised rabbit, an irresistible honey-ginger-glazed pork chop, and one of the best barbecued shrimp dishes in the city. First-timers must try the "Gumbo Ya-Ya," a rich chicken and sausage gumbo, and no meal here can end without the hot buttered pecan

pie. Upscale yet accessible, Mr. B's is still on the map because of its just-right seasonings, its windows on the French Quarter world, and its dedication to service. Don't miss Sunday brunch, featuring a live jazz trio and "eye openers" (also known as brunch cocktails).

Mr. B's Bistro Review

Why did I give it such a low value rating? Because the portions were way too small. I ate dinner here with a group of six. We all enjoyed our food tremendously but for the prices we paid, everyone an average amount of food. When an appetizer says "oysters" you expect more than one! It was the best oyster I ate in New Orleans - I really wanted more than one. My soft shelled crab was delicious, our service delightful but I know I won't return because

I can't see paying those prices to leave hungry.
