Sunday Brunch for 75 in the Quarter?
A few friends are hosting a wedding brunch in March 2009 and asked for help finding the right spot in the Quarter, where most guests will be staying. All they knew about was Court of Two Sisters. I said there are much better places for brunch! Although I live here, I am not an expert on brunch spots. My first thoughts are: Arnaud's, Antoine's, Galatoir and Brennan's. Maybe Mr. B's? I love Cafe Amelie, but dont think it is suited to a party of that size.
Suggestions? And what are prices per person like? They said keep it under $100/person, but I think they are hoping for somewhere around $50 - $60 per head.
I think I found the spot, only problem is that its not in the quarter. But close enough! Just had breakfast at Lil Dizzy's, inside the old Whitney Bank on Poydras. Best meal in a long time! Wow. Anyone been there and tried the french toast? Mmmmm. I think their fried chicken just might beat Miss Mae's, Dookie Chase and maybe even Reconcile.
re: edible complex
call Napoleon House about their upstairs room:
I did a fantastic brunch for a group at Carmelo's (with balcony);
and did another group lunch in the courtyard of the House of Blues:
and also had a group lunch at Muriel's (upstairs with Seance Room and Balcony):
lastly, check out Maximo's:
