Where is it?


We live in the Touro Bouligny district in the heart of Uptown New Orleans. Our district borders the historic Garden District. Our neighborhood is filled with families and pet-friendly neighbors, schools, churchs, Upscale, causual and diverse dining choices, boutique clothes and home décor shops, art galleries and multiple access locations to RTA’s Streetcar and city bus lines.
Our house is located 6 blocks from St. Charles Avenue, 2 blocks from Magazine Street, and 2 blocks from Napoleon Avenue. Our neighborhood was built in the late 1890’s with beautiful architecture, vibrant colors and lots of trees. Our home is surrounded by 4 schools and 2 churches, and nearby Laurence Playground and New Orleans Children’s Library offers a safe and very friendly atmosphere.

Buzzy restaurants
We have 4 James Beard award wining restaurants 2 blocks from our house. Saffron NOLA (Indiaer, La Petite Grocery (French American), Shaya (Israeli), and Lilette (American). The dining experience and atmosphere in each is worth the trip. We also have great causal and family friendly restaurants for those looking for something easy and laid back. Here are a few of our favorites that we frequent but note this is not an exhaustive list: Magasin (Vietnamese), Theo’s (pizza), Baru (Tapas), Que Rico! (Cuban), Nomiya (Ramen), Mona’s (Lebanese). Visit Eater New Orleans for listings of whats new and hot in the city and Yelp does give accurate reviews of restaurants in the area. For any upscale restaurant, I highly advise securing reservations. Many can be booked through Open Table. There are a few other neighborhoods that we love to dine in offering a different vibe and culture. Visit the St. Roch and ByWater area which offers a hip, edgy, artistic vibe. It houses some of the newest culinary experiences in the city. You may also enjoy the Warehouse District and CBD/South Market areas.
Cool bars
The Milan is 3 blocks and the quintessential dive bar. Its also one of the city’s most nostalgic neighborhood bars and a huge favorite of Chicago Cubs fans. Bouligny Tavern is very lovely and offers great wine list and craft cocktails. It’s less than a 10 minute walk down Magazine Street. All of the neighborhood upscale restaurants offer great bars. New Orleans also has a micro-brew and craft beer explosion. A very popular brewery is Port of Orleans which is a walkable distance from the house. Its located at the intersection of our street (Milan Street) and Tchoupitoulas Street which runs alongside the river. Other notable breweries located on Tchoupitoulas are Urban South and NOLA Brewery.
Cozy cafés
La Boulangerie is an 8 block walk and locally owned coffee, artisan breads and pastries. We also love PJ’s, Mojo’s and French Truck. Because New Orleans is all about supporting locally owned businesses, you won’t find many Starbucks in the residential areas. But if you must, there is a Starbuck’s located on Magazine Street at Washington Avenue. This is about 1.2 miles from our house.
Retail therapy
Our stretch of Magazine Street has a lot of upscale clothing stores, home décor, and art galleries. One of my favorites is this inexpensive accessory store called Trendz. Its great for small gifts and a quick accessory to complete an outfit. If you are a fan of pop art, make sure to visit Ashley Longshore’s gallery. Its located on Magazine Street across from La Boulangerie. Another fabulous art gallery nearby is Alex Beard. Next to Trendz is a walk-in nail salon called Magazine Nails. I frequent often. They are very friendly and clean. Across from the nail salon is Modern Dry Cleaners. Jay and Francis have been caring for my families clothes for over 20 years.
Bit of culture
Since Katrina, our neighborhood stretch of Magazine Street exploded with great restaurants both upscale and casual, and lots of home décor and art shopping. You will see many locals and tourists walk our street heading to Magazine Street thoughout the day and night. Our neighborhood is filled with walkers, joggers, bike-riders and pets. The culture is very New Orleans, very local, easy and laid back.
Walks in the park
Laurence Playgound and Park and the New Orleans Children’s Library are only 4 blocks away at the intersection of Magazine Street and Napoleon Avenue. There is a small playground, large park area for dogs, frisbee or a game of catch. There is also a full size basketball court that is often in use. Audubon Park and Zoo is about 1.5 miles from our house, nestled between Magazine Street and St. Charles Avenue. You can easily access the park by either the RTA #11 bus or the Streetcar. You can access the #11 bus at the corner of our street (Milan Street) and Magazine. The Streetcar stop is located at our street (Milan Street) and St. Charles Avenue. Audubon has a 1.6 mile paved track around the park which is great for a run, walk or bike. In the center of the track is a short 18-hole golf course, a pond filled with ducks, and several newly renovated playgrounds, and dozens of old Oak Trees. This is a great picnic spot. Visit www.audubonnatureinstitute.com for more information about the zoo and aquarium. New Orleans City Park is about a 15 minute drive away and the city’s largest park. It is also home to New Orleans Museum of Modern Art and Sculpture Garden, New Orleans Botanical Gardens and a lot of playgounds, paddleboating, bikes, etc. There is also a Café Du Monde in the park where you can take a café au-lait and order of beignets.
Spot of exercise
For walkers and runners, depart the house and head to St. Charles Avenue (6 blocks). Take a left and head up St. Charles Avenue to Audubon Park. You will see many others walking and running the streetcar tracks along St. Charles. It’s a 1.5 mile track to the park. The paved track offers another 1.6 miles of workout before heading back to our house. There are several yoga, pilates and barre studios that nearby. Orange Theory, Anytime Fitness and several Cross Fits gyms are nearby as well. I’ll be happy to make reservations upon request.
