    I Was wondering what building was used to be the outside of Sisko's. I know that in the show it was near Audubon park, is the building facade there or even in NOLA?

    I'd always assumed the Sisko's restaurant exterior was filmed on the Paramount backlot or at another studio, not on location in New Orleans. I don't have the entire series though, so maybe they did slip a stock footage shot in there somewhere.

    But even if it was just a backlot facade, you could always give yourself a sightseeing trip in the vicinity of the park to see if any of the architecture resembles that seen in the show.

    That exterior shot looked more like New York than New Orleans.

    Anything that looks close to that is in the French Quarter... the opposite side of town from Audubon Park.

    Memory Alpha gives us this shot of the entrance, which definitely looks like a backlot set to me. Backlot streets are usually too clean to be in a real city.

    And over at Ex Astris Scientia, they've already done the leg work for us, and identify the location as part of Paramount's backlot New York Street facades.
