Down a picturesque alley just a block and a half from Bourbon Street is Green Goddess, a little outdoor restaurant that serves a mix of vegan and vegetarian dishes, along with cheese, charcuterie, and some very nice cocktails. It’s a great date spot, or the perfect refuge from the overcrowded bars nearby, and if you’re eating with someone who always makes specific requests when they order, Green Goddess is a place that has something for everyone.
