With its wrought iron balconies and signature French Creole architecture, the French Quarter is one of New Orleans’ dreamiest neighborhoods, so it’s no surprise that Bayona offers a romantic setting for dining. If you’re visiting the city during the spring or fall when temperatures hover around 80 degrees Fahrenheit, ask to dine on the enclosed outdoor patio, which is easily the restaurant’s most charming spot. Landscaped with tropical greenery and a host of fruit trees — not to mention the fountain that trickles softly — it’s been designed to recall the private garden of a Creole family from the city's early days.
