hello new orleans, we'll be there for our semi-not annual trip june 10th & i'd like some interesting brunch suggestions. we're staying at the lamothe house. we have done commander's & mr b's many times. i'll actually be there for TWO sundays but my better half will only be there the first sunday. just looking for something different that i might be overlooking in my planning.
i've been to new orleans many many times. i'm not a newbie. however, not getting there several times a year(like i used to)& only once every two years or so means we're not up on the latest openings or hot spots. mainly, though, we just want great food(which is one reason we've been to commander's a number of times).
several places we're considering:

ralph's on the park.

  1. Patois has a fantastic brunch, and it's on the newer side so you may not have been there before. Definitely go there with your better half. Every dish I've had there has been great, and in my opinion the prices are a steal for the quality you get. If you're meat eaters, definitely try the lamb ribs starter.

    1. I really like Cafe Atchafalaya in the Garden District. They have Sunday Brunch with live music. The new owners are doing a great job.

      Cafe Atchafalaya @ 901 Louisiana Ave., New Orleans, LA. 504 - 891 - 9626.

      1. I really love Elizabeth's for lunch. Surrey's is also nice. I like EAT but they get mixed reviews on here. Cafe Amelie is good too, with a gorgeous courtyard.

        A bit more 'no frills' than the places you've mentioned, but you could also try Slim Goodies or Huevos for nice egg concoctions.

        1. Here's a vote for brunch at Domenica...the usual menu is available, plus three or four brunch specials and several brunch cocktails.

          1. re: Hungry Celeste

            I is a lot of fun...and an approriate day for the restauran't name, n'est pas? I've gotten in and out on several occasions for reasonable money which is amazing considering the location. It helps that a couple of the waiters are friends from other shops but that is only a personal pleasure and not something that is necessary

            1. re: hazelhurst

              Domenica's new 1/2 priced drinks and pizzas happy hour is a bonus. several new pizza recipe additions to try.

              123 Baronne Street, New Orleans, LA 70112

          2. If you want a totally different experience consider LIl Dizzy's in Treme. It's down-home cooking and local vibe all the way. It's BYOB so bring a bottle of champagne. And it's a buffet with all slammin food. Plus it's inexpensive.

                So far sooooo good!

                I have a sweet pic of the fridge jammed with the bottles that I've been meaning to post...
