Metairie dining

I need a good suggestion for a restaurant in Metairie /Kenner/Harahan area. It needs to be open for lunch

      I probably should have said except Bozo's. I am trying to figure out a place to give my mom a gift certificate to for Christimas. She is 85 .Almost every Friday her and her husband eat lunch at Bozo's.

    2. The first thing I thought of was the Peppermill. People of your mom's generation make up the majority of the clientel and it is very comfortable. The food is fantastic and the prices are unbeatable. My second choice is Drago's. It can be a little noisy, but still a great place with a large menu. Merry Christmas to your mom and dad!

        If I'm ever feeling creaky or aged, a Sunday brunch at the Peppermill quickly changes my mind.

      2. Chateau du Lac or New City Grille on Metairie Rd

        1. Peppermill is a great choice. Chateau du Lac is quite a bit more upscale but has magnificent food. One other thought: Mr. Ed's on Live Oak is really quite decent, and is a favorite of many older clients. Very relaxed and friendly.
