Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop Restaurant Review

: A must-stop on the itinerary for many tourists is the ancient-looking Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop in the French Quarter. (Famed privateer Jean Lafitte and his brother are rumored to have used the 18th-century property as a base for smuggling operations.) Patrons sip Hurricanes or frozen daiquiris on the sidewalk patio fronting Bourbon Street or inside amid the rustic setting of wood, bricks and candlelight.
