Say a Lower Garden District "I-do" at this New Orleans former neighborhood market.
Fabulously featuring a large private courtyard in addition to the newly renovated interior space, this sweetly southern spot is perfect for a mix of new and nostalgia. Bonus? The recent renovation added design details such as herringbone wood floors, Italianate chandeliers, and a furnished library with banquette seating.
