French Quarter Steak


The French Quarter is the oldest and most famous section of the city of New Orleans, Louisiana. It stretches along the Mississippi River from Iberville Street to Esplanade Avenue and back from Decatur Street to Rampart Street. It is also known as the Vieux Carre (“Old Quarter” in French) and the Barrio Latino (“Latin Section” in Spanish). To many it is simply called “The Quarter”. A favorite “drive to” for many Cajuns.
