The Original Pierre Maspero's Restaurant Review

: Situated on a bustling corner, The Original Pierre Maspero's has an ambience that is upscale enough for a dressy evening out, but jeans-and-a-sweater attire is suitable at the bar to watch a Saints game on flat-screens. The bar is also a good place to take advantage of overloaded Bloody Marys. Specialty dishes include fried or grilled alligator, oyster po' boys, blackened shrimp jambalaya, cochon de lait (slow cooked pork with Cajun spices, garlic and jalapeños), and bread pudding with chunks of peaches and raisins topped with white chocolate crème anglaise. While there are decent wines that will pair with most menu items, the wine list could use some updating. Since the building is centrally located to many hotels, it’s a fine breakfast spot (try the andouille sausage and eggs), but be prepared to wait for a table on weekends, sometimes up to an hour.
