There's a laid back atmosphere. There are old movie mementos all over the walls. It's fun just to see what is displayed. Since I'm from New Orleans, this was just so much a reminder of 'home'.
Favorite Dish: It has a lot of Cajun/Creole food. It's delicious!! I had some type of Pasta with spicy sauce. It was so good!
Charming authentic 1950s diner in west Des Moines, a big hit with the collegiate set at Drake, very popular for weekend breakfasts.
Pleasant, quality bistro in downtown Des Moines. Reliable and well-recommended by Des Moines natives, Django is one of the most-admired upscale restaurants in the city.
Beautiful, casually elegant restaurant with a classic Euro-feel, in Des Moines' fashionable East Village neighborhood, just west of the State Capitol. They do a great value lunch special here, too.
Court Avenue Brewing Company is a brew pub and restaurant with hand-crafted ales.
Favorite Dish: 'Nuts and Bolts' with a glass of their specialty brewed ale.
