Bon Ton is a really old school place near the big Hale Boggs federal building. It looks like it has been there for eons and it serves very traditional, simple New Orleans food. Its a perfect place to get lunch downtown when you want to just sit down, have some big 'ol iced teas, some etouffee, and maybe some fried catfish and some gumbo. You'll also run into the local federal judge, no doubt.
Bon Ton is old school New Orleans. Very old school.
The Menu is as old school as its wonderfully attentive service is.
A cup of their very excellent gumbo.
A wider view of the main dining room.
Crawfish Etouffee, and an excellent rendition at that.
Onion rings, with the lightest and and crispiest coating. Not at all greasy.
