i will be in New Orleans the 1st weekend of October and am wanting to have Grillades and Grits for breakfast one morning. Went to the Old Coffee Pot last November and they no longer served them. I am staying in the CBD near the French Quarter any suggestions??

    I'm sure there are other places but the last time I had them in a restaurant was at the Royal Orleans in '07. Usually I make it myself or have it at Carnival functions or at someone's house.

      Eat New Orleans has by far the tastiest grillades over creamy grits for brunch. It comes with a homemade biscuit the size of a softball. They only serve it on saturday and sunday mornings. I think I've had almost everything on their brunch menu. Great cute place.

        I second EAT for grillades and grits and their entire breakfast menu. It is on the corner of Dumaine and Dauphine. It is BYOL. http://www.eatnola.com/

        Begue's in the Royal Sonesta also serves them and they are good. Not available on the weekend brunch buffet.

              Green Goddess had g&g on the brunch menu. I haven't had it, but everything I have had there has been great.

                Luke, in the CBD. I had the grillades and grits, and it was some of the best eating of our trip to NOLA. Additionally, the fried potatoes were the best I've ever had, anywhere, and I love potatoes and am not easily impressed. We also had brunch at EAT, and I didn't think the food was as good as Luke.

                  It's good to see grillades surviving--thirty years ago it was hard to find at restaurants. It is easy to make, just time consuming. Some friends in Lutcher, as recently as twenty years ago, had never heard of it..it seems to stop at Da Lake, except for the Cajun version which is wholly different.

                  I also have to recommend EAT! The grits and grillades are excellent!
