Will be in New Orleans first time in October for a Giants Saints game. Looking for a good sunday brunch near the stadium preferably with music.

    The brunch closest to the stadium, that I know of, is the Veranda Restaurant in the Intercontinental Hotel on St. Charles and Poydras. It is a jazz brunch, but it's buffet style not al a carte . We went in '06 when not a lot was open yet, and it was just fine. For a bunch of guys going a game it might be just the ticket.

        I heard they have a great buffet at Rick's Sporting Saloon on Bourbon. All you Giants fans should definitely check that out.

          Be sure to check out the brunch at LePavilion Hotel at the corner of Poydras and Baronne. It is approximately 3 blocks from the Dome. Good brunch and NO music.

            check out Luke or Lil Dizzy at the Whitney Wyndham.

              Luke is great pregame atmosphere. Great New Orleans music and awesome food and locally brewed beers. Not a far walk to the dome. And you can make a reservation!

                  Agree totally with Luke, right across the street from the Intercontinental. Went there before the Detroit game. Breakfast with 2 drinks each for two, about $70-75 as I recall.
