Brunch in the heat

lilmoses Jul 12, 2011 12:14 PM

Okay, plan on having 11:30am brunch at Court of Two Sisters in a few weeks. Will it be too hot for the courtyard? Do they have fans? Misters? How is the ambiance inside? Oh, I'm from south Texas so my definition of too hot may differ a little!

    I think most will agree that the ambiance, in and out, is better than the food. I don't call the food bad, just pedestrian, and there are better choices if you have the option.

      Agree with Collardman about the food at C of TS. Are you invited to a function there and must attend? If not, lots of better brunch food in the FQ: Arnaud's, Begue's, EAT, Muriel's, Roux on Orleans...and there are lots more.

          Rats! I loved their Grits and Grillades and they had a really spicey Bloody Mary.

        Probably high 90's with matching humidity, which makes being outdoors insufferable.

          An absolutely perfect (and, of course, predictable) forecast. Probably not much different from the OP's world. But it is brutal, even for me and I swim through the summer in seersucker and poplin. I did know a guy years ago though who was one of those "The air-conditioner is too much with us" sorts who would not have an A/C in his house on Carrolton. He finally caved in when he hit 50. Prior to that, though, he'd have been in a courtyard in August, in his suit, wringing wet. He boycotted the Napoleon House when they put in A/C.
