Sylvain is a semi-upscale neighborhood spot that you’ll wish was around the corner from where you lived. Located just off Jackson Square in the French Quarter, this place serves some of our favorite all-purpose dishes, like pork Milanese, little neck clams, and a truly great fried chicken sandwich. Besides food, Sylvain is equally great just for drinking cocktails on their back patio, in case you’ve already eaten for the fourth time that day and need a break before dinner.
