A local favorite, Donna’s offers great barbecue and New Orleans-style jazz five nights a week, with several house bands covering Thursday-Monday. The cover charge can be a bit steep, but the musicians are local and always great. Don’t expect a fine dining experience, as the place veers towards the dive-y end of things. Do, however, expect authentic NOLA cuisine and exceptional music. (Known for years as Donna’s Bar & Grill, this place reopened under new management in 2011 as Donna’s on Rampart, after being closed for over a year. No word yet on how much of its dive character has been retained, but it’s worth noting that the new Donna’s is smoke-free.)
