Past the lobby of the Kimpton Hotel Fontenot is the Peacock Room. Bursting with ornate character, it has whimsical wallpaper, mosaic tile floors and of course, stuffed peacocks. The menu is just as fun, with colorful cocktails and one of the city’s best burgers.

Located in a renovated 19th-century mansion on St. Charles Ave is one of the city’s most exciting hotels and restaurants.

Inside the new Hotel Saint Vincent is San Lorenzo, named after the patron saint of cooks. Book a white-linen table here, and you’ll see why. Large format checkerboard floors between white columns and green velvet booths offer an elegant design matching the coastal Italian menu.
