Where can I find Bananas Foster?

Do any restaurants in Los Angeles serve Bananas Foster for dessert?

Thanks.

        While Taps does a good rendition, I much prefer Ralph Brennan's Jazz Kitchen in Downtown Disney. If you ever want to OD on Taps Bananas Foster, I suggest going during Sunday Brunch, when they make load of it fresh, and you can eat until your heart is content. Vanilla ice cream is readily available.

          If you really want to go over the top at TAPS brunch, have them put the Bananas Foster over a waffle.

            i guess i better visit too, bananas foster and some gumbo and a po boy sure sounds like some good eats if it could be found in southern california.

        2. While I have not been, I would imagine that Ralph Brennan's Jazz Kitchen at Downtown Disney ought to have a good rendition since the dish was invented at his Family's original restaurant, Brennan's in New Orleans.

          1. I rarely check local boards outside of my area, being more of a Home Cooking Board and Cookware Board person, but...if it is bananas Foster you want and not the bananas Foster at a restaurant experience, it is a very simple thing to make at home...heat equal parts butter and brown sugar in a pan...it will quickly form the desired sauce. Throw in quartered bananas. Add liqueur and flame. I met the dish at Brennan's in Houston and figured, "Hey, I can do that." Now, 30 pounds heavier...
