Bon Ton Cafe

401 Magazine St., New Orleans, LA - (504) 524-3386

More of a special occasion dinner as this is hardly a Roadfood stop; it's more of a downtown, high-end meal, like Galatoire's, with similar prices but without the "scene."

Red Fish Bon Ton, one of the house specialties, is an extravaganza of redfish, crabmeat, onion rings, and lots and lots of butter.  Fantastic!

Bon Ton serves the booziest bread pudding in town.  It's one of the best, too.

Sirloin tips in a rich red wine sauce tempted us on Ash Wednesday. We decided they were worth going to hell for.

Underneath the onion rings, you can see heaps of crab meat.  The succulent redfish is below that.

An eating landmark, Bon Ton Cafe is a humble building on old Magazine Street, not far from the French Quarter.

Outside of the Bon Ton (and all over the French Quarter, too) are gas lanterns.
