  1. I know where you can find a bad jazz brunch that you can wear jeans.

      Thanks but no thanks.

        I believe I know what you mean. There MUST be a decent hotel jazz brunch..all the hotels allow jeans nowadays.

          Without doing thorough research, these are the Jazz brunches that come to mind:

          Commanders
          Antoine's
          Arnaud's
          Muriel's
          Mr. B's
          Rib Room
          Court of Two Sisters

          1. re: BayouTeche

            Rib Room and Mr B's ought to work, don't you think?

            1. re: hazelhurst

              Yeah, I reckon. I'm sure there'll be others wearing jeans, at least.

      2. Cafe Atchalafalaya has a Sunday Brunch with live music.

          But their band was not a Trad jazz band, although I thought it was better, i.e., more entertaining than most Trad jazz groups. And I do like Trad but it may just be too many years hearing the same standards (occasionaly WAY too loud) at the usual hotel brunch venues that made me appreciate the group at Atchafalalya (and maybe the Bloody Mary buffet).

          1. re: collardman

            Too loud...that's the main problem most places. If they are wandering through and you have to stop tlaking for a little bit that's OK but not every fifteen minutes. I have gotten to the point that I turn and run if there is a cajun band inside the door (you don't see this is New Orleans but you know what I mean).

        2. The Blue Room has a brunch. Not exactly sure what kind of music.

            Sunday Jazz Brunch at the Blue Room, 504-648-1200

            With the rebirth of The Blue Room comes the return of the culinary and cultural experience of Sunday Jazz Brunch. Every Sunday from 11am to 2pm, guests are treated to creations by executive chef Stefan Kauth and the sounds of The James Rivers Movement:

              Thanks for all the suggestions. I'm still undecided.

          2. I understand Buffa's has a Jazz Brunch, and it certainly would qualify as casual. I haven't been so cannot speak to the experience or the quality of the food.
