Les Pêches

The Gulf of Mexico is 100 miles away but this is a port city intimately connected to the sea and to seafood.  You haven’t tasted an oyster until you’ve had one on the half shell in New Orleans.  You’ve never tasted a fish until you had blackened drum.  Wanna know a secret?  Redfish and drum are the same fish.  They swim off the coast in schools thick as mosquitos.  That’s why one or the other are always the fish of the day.  They’re the same fish.  Get immersed in the swim of New Orleans and get taken to school.  In New Orleans we dance like nobody is watching.  In New Orleans, we have a good time.

Our newest second-floor suite has been redecorated to reflect the city’s love for all things seafood. The charming sitting room is blue with a green ceiling and it is hung with colorful fish sculptures. Furnishing are a blend of antique and contemporary, arranged for comfort. There is also a large desk for work, if you have to.

The bedroom has an antique wardrobe and a queen size bed. There is plenty of shelf and drawer space around the bathroom sink. The walls are painted with what the paint store calls “henna.” It’s very nice and the walls are hung an installation inspired by Neptune’s bounty as well as original, and quite breathtaking, paintings by Whalehead King.

This is a very large suite that overlooks Esplanade Avenue. This suite includes a French-style private bath equipped with an antique cast-iron claw foot tub that does have a shower head. There is a balcony with a small cafe table and two chairs that makes for a nice respite from the French Quarter and a nice place to enjoy a preprandial glass of wine.
