Brunch Rec—Girls Weekend

My college girlfriends and I are meeting in NOLA this weekend for an informal reunion and group celebration of our 30th birthdays. There will be six of us.

If we have one chance for brunch (on Saturday), what would you recommend? Brennan's, Commander's, others? Great food is a must, good brunch cocktails, wait for a table not an issue as long as the atmosphere is good.

If it matters, we're eating at Galatoire's on Saturday night. We'll probably eat somewhere low-key on Friday depending on flight arrivals.

So, where do you recommend? Any must-order items? Any advice on timing?

Thanks in advance!

    1. commander's gets my vote, but Galatoire's for dinner might make me choose something a little lighter for brunch. I guess if you eat early enough, you'll be hungry again by dinnertime.
