Rolling into New Orleans on a Sunday morning in a few weeks. Any special dining venues I should experience on a Sunday around noon or after?

    My current favorite is Cafe Atchafalaya brunch and Bloody Mary bar. Casual, not over powering music, and easy parking

      Enthusiastic thumbs up for the Cafe Atchafalaya rec, it's one of our neighborhood faves, especially for brunch. They had this amazing duck hash on special when I was there last... Mmm!

            Don,

            You're tempting me with the comments on Cafe Atchafalaya. We've not fit them into the schedule yet, but think we definitely need to do so.

            Will report, when we're "back home."

        To tag onto this post, any good spots for dinner or drinks on Sunday? Would love some places that are jumpin' even though it's the end of the weekend.

          As for jumpin', pick one of the eating places uptown/on Magazine Street, maybe the aforementioned Cafe Atchafalalya, and go to the early Cajun dancing at Tipitina's. If you can't dance you will before you leave.

            Here is a list from a long time local food writer, Tom Fitzmorris that names restaurants open on Sunday for dinner by neighborhood:

            http://www.nomenu.com/joomla1/index.p...

            Food or drinks most places both, El Gato Negro, Port of Call, Cafe Degas and Mandina's in mid city are very good choices (IMO of course)....

              Suzy,

              That is a great resource, as this question comes up fairly often.

              Thank you,

              Hunt
