"The Big Easy is a nickname from the dawn of jazz. Jazz musicians at the turn of the century were fond of nicknames and a dance hall by that name existed in the early 1900's, according to jazz historians, but the location is uncertain. The Big Easy is New Orleans with their gentle and relaxed pace of life for which New Orleans is best known. New Orleans has given the world great music and great food, so step back in time and take a stroll in the French Quarter, Jackson Square or visit the plantations. The architecture and ambiance of New Orleans is unsurpassed. In New Orleans, dining is an event all its own."
