Mona Lisa

Italian in French Quarter

An informal and quiet local spot in the Lower Quarter, Mona Lisa is dim, dark and candlelight-romantic in its own quirky way. Kooky renditions of Da Vinci’s familiar subject hang on the walls. Wearing hair curlers, looking 50lb heavier or appearing in the form of a cow, she stares impassively at diners munching on pizzas, pastas and spinach salads.
