Are you a vegetarian/vegan restaurant?
Nope, but we always keep several vegetarian and vegan options on our menu and most of our menu can be vegetarian with a few substitutions. Communicate with out wait staff and we’ll take care of you.
Can you accommodate my food allergies?
Yes we can, but please be aware that we can only do so much. For example we have nuts in our kitchen (besides the staff). And we cook all of our food on the same grill. You know the extent of your own needs, and we always do the best we can to accommodate.
What the parking situation like?
We do not validate for any parking lots. Parking is usually available in the Hotel Monteleone, which can be accessed on the 300 block of Bienville St and the 200 block of Chartres St. The open-air parking lots on N. Peters St from Iberville St to the Jax Brewery are always open. There’s also street parking scattered around the French Quarter.
Do you take reservations?
No we don’t. We operate on a first come, first served basis.
Do you have a dress code?
Nope. You can wear a t-shirt or a tuxedo – we’re comfortable if you are.
Do you have traditional New Orleans dishes?
Sure don’t. Our dishes have a New Orleans backbone to them, but we don’t serve gumbo or trout almondine. There are dozens of great restaurants in the French Quarter that serve that stuff but we aren’t it.
Is the Green Goddess fine dining?
No. If you are looking for white table clothes and a wait staff wearing ties and pressed shirts we’re not it. If that’s what you’re looking for we recommend The Pelican Club right next door. Their food is top notch and they’ve got a stranglehold on that fine dining thing. We’ve got great dishes, an impressive wine list, superb cocktails and a fun, down-to-earth mentality. Don’t bring your grandmother who wears elbow gloves and pearls, she probably won’t like it. Bring her kooky sister who likes to wear whatever is comfortable and knows a few semi-inappropriate jokes. She’ll love it.
What’s the dining room like?
Not traditional. Most of our seating is outdoors on Exchange Alley, which has a European-esque ambiance and is weather permitting. We also have two small indoor dining rooms. One of the indoor rooms seats about 8 and it’s pretty much in the kitchen (it’s small). The other indoor dining room seats about 8 and it can be “intimate”. Like elbow knocking intimate (according one of our reviews).
