Help! Need Delish Champagne Brunch in NOLA for a pescetarian.

Cosmelvis Feb 9, 2010 11:38 AM

My hubby and I are flying into town on Saturday and staying at Harrah's. We're looking for a great champagne brunch on Saturday or Sunday. I dont need a ton of fish/veggie options, but a couple to choose from would be nice. I'm definitely not looking to wait forever for 3 servings of rubbery eggs under a heat lamp.

We love places with character, spicy cajun food, friendly people, live music, and champagne/bloody mary's if that gives you an idea about our "brunch tastes."

    Sounds like Commander's Palace to me. Make a reservation or you will wait.

      You won't get into Commander's as you've left it way too late to make reservations but try Mr. B's, Palace Cafe

        Luke does a really nice brunch, casual atmosphere, but great food, and a lot to choose from that does not involve eggs. ch

          We had brunch at Mr. B's last Sunday and it was fantastic. You cannot go wrong there. It was a festive atmosphere with the Superbowl and I expect it will be the same this week with Mardi Gras. Reservations a must.

            had lunch there yesterday. every bar seat was a diner. many were turned away at the door. it was packed; busiest I've seen on a Friday Gras. Luke was crazy busy last night as well.
            this town is hopping!
