Feelings Cafe, Bywater, New Orleans

Feeling’s Cafe located in Faubourg-Marigny in the Bywater on the former D’Aunoy Plantation. The restaurant is off past the Frenchman Jazz area, but worth the cab ride there and back.

I would highly suggest calling advance to confirm hours of operation and make a reservation. We did not make them because we thought it was walk in only, however one of the proprietors mentioned they take reservations online. He also mentioned a few times this restaurant is for locals.

Patrons can eat on the balcony on the weekends and the upstairs bar serves wine and light fare.

The eccentric and cool decor on the stairwell.

The downstairs deep wood bar area has on Friday and Saturday evenings a piano player takes requests and played a Chopin Nocturne. When we were having a cocktail at the bar, he was about to have his own scallop and salad dinner. It was fun to glance at all the knick knacks that are all quite unique.

I loved this sign. At a few other dining establishments, I have seen similar messages.Tanqueray and tonic $6.50. The bartender mentioned they did not have infused alcohols or anything to fancy.
The dimly lit dining room had ten to a dozen tables and unique decor including the angel sculpture and fixtures.

I really enjoyed this bread basket. Garlic and butter rubbed toasts. I could have eaten the whole thing.

I had the house salad, with Mandarin orange slices, slivered almonds, topped with a poppy seed vinaigrette for $6.00. The poppy seed vinaigrette and oranges were a great match and I will try to make this at home.

We had the Fish florentine, where the fish was fried with a light batter, served creamed spinach and topped with Hollandaise. The fish was flakey and I wiped my plate clean. $19.75

Although we did not indulge in the Peanut Butter Pie, it was highly recommended for $6.00. Next time.Feelings Cafe on Urbanspoon
