Commander's Palace-Dinner or Brunch?
I've been scouring the board trying to find out if Commander's is better for brunch or for dinner. I haven't found any specific leads yet. I currently have dinner reservations, but it's far enough in advance that I can change it to a brunch reservation.
Any input would be greatly appreciated!
I haven't been to either brunch or dinner, but lunch is wonderful. 25 cent martinis. Good food. Lots of ambience.
I enjoy the music at the Sunday Jazz brunch. The best part is that you have all day to digest.
Maybe just to be the contrarian, I love Commander's for dinner best. Yes, the Jazz Brunch is fun, but I think that the restaurant and staff really shine with the dinner service.
Were it me, I'd opt for Commander's for dinner and brunch at Ralph's on the Park. I'm more a food and wine guy and the "fun" atmosphere, while, well, er-r-r, fun, is down my list. Give me great food, great wine, great service and I am having "fun." However, you have to remember that I am probably older than your parents, so weigh my comments accordingly.
I like dinner better because there are more tourists for jazz brunch. They come in wearing jeans, t-shirts, whatever. There's also more families with kids that come in during brunch. To me, it makes it a less enjoyable experience. However, if you're looking for a less formal experience, brunch may be for you.
