I see this name all the time and don't know how to pronounce it. Would someone do a phonetic spelling for me? Dictionary doesn't have it. Is it a place? Is just a restaurant? Thanks for your help.

  1. Mare-i-nee. It is a neighborhood, next to the French Quarter. The complete name is Faubourg (foe-boorg)Marigny, meaning neighborhood, more or less. There are other Faubourgs, such as Faubourg St. John.

    There are also several restaurants in that area that bear the name Marigny -- Marigny Brasserie, and I think there is still some version of Cafe Marigny in existence.
