Check out my Feature on Indie Music Blog @myspiltmilk“the cream of New Orleans music”
[Updated] The tenth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina is being remembered in many predictable ways—concerts, speeches, parades, to name a few. Less likely is K10 on The Levee, a day of yoga and music that will take place at 500 Deslonde St. in the Lower Ninth Ward. Lauren McCabe organized the yoga, and +Aziz will provide the music for the 8 a.m. sunrise session and the 6:30 p.m. sunset session. The event is free, and all donations will go to Commo...

I was a returning customer to Satsuma for a while. It's a good spot overall but they unfortunately have a really bad WiFi policy where they turn it off at random. I ordered my food/coffee and tried to reason with their manager to turn it back on after I had been working for 10 mins, but my request was denied. Very peculiar. It wasn't even crowded so I'm guessing its their way of discouraging "laptop people" from coming to their establishment.

Good eats. Dessert is worth the extra $3. The go to is their lamb which has a thick noodle and gravy. I also had a cabbage salad. Good service. I was the only one there!

Strangely disappointing for such a prime location. I came with a group of people and everyone complained about how salty their main dish was; so the food is definitely on the salty side. And my salad was very bland too. Service was great, but they weren't familiar with some of the updates the chefs had made. The restaurant is on the cold side, so bring a jacket/sweater even if the weather is warm. I just left with the impression that it is essentially a tourist trap. I'm sorry to say their food has no integrity.

This is an extra professional Holiday Inn that is really crowded and has terrible WiFi. They can do so much better with their breakfast. Staff was very accommodating and friendly.

Exceptional food, service and experience. Definitely the best and most expensive Middle Eastern spot in New Orleans. I'm assuming they brand themselves as an Israeli restaurant because the chef is from there, but the menu does include dishes from Lebanon, Palestine and Morocco. Highly recommended.

Huge place, I found some great vintage clothes here. They have a lot of larger things but what really made it special was the people behind the counter. A truly welcoming, helpful and upbeat place.
