Brunch/Lunch in FQ on Saturday?
We are hosting family in May for graduation weekend and I need suggestions for an early lunch or brunch place in the French Quarter or CBD before graduation that day at 4pm. I already am planning on Commander's Palace for another day. I was thinking Court of Two Sisters since some family members have never been to New Orleans. Does anyone know the cost of the Jazz Brunch Buffet? Is it still around $28 per person?
Does anyone else have suggestions for lunch or brunch in the FQ for a party of 6-7 people? I would like to do something more Creole/Cajun rather than just sandwiches or burgers. Thank you!
Try to Palace Cafe on Canal Street. 4 PM is really an early dinner. They were having an early bird special if you are are seated before 7PM. The eary dinner begins at 5:30 PM.
Palace Café re-introduces its Dinner before Seven, three-course menu starting at $25. The menu is available nightly, when seated by 7:00 pm.
Chef Darin Nesbit’s menu will change monthly. Enjoy signature dishes along with contemporary Creole dishes with Dinner before Seven.
Dinner before Seven
Entrée Price Includes 3 courses
Available 5:30-7:00pm Nightly
I'd take them to Galatoire's. Mid-afternoon is the perfect time to go and I think it is the quintessential New Orleans Creole dining experience. If you don't drink a bunch of alcohol, ot won't set you back too much.
Yikes, sorry pitterpat. I saw the 4pm time and thought that was the time you were looking to eat. Sometimes postings are read in a hurry when one is at work . . . when they are supposed to be working . . . LOL.
You could also try Bacco on Chartes Streeet for an early lunch. They open at 11:30 am. Or Muriel's in Jackson Square. They also open at 11:30.
