We still miss the days when this bar, pool, restaurant, club was an anything-goes, clothing-optional, locals retreat. But we’ll admit that the new and much-improved version is quite delightful (and tastier, with the former Commander’s Palace chef now handling kitchen duties). The converted Creole cottage tucked away in the residential Bywater offers a staycation for locals and visitors of all persuasions, with a pretty veranda, airy dining room, pool, and Jacuzzi. Fair warning: The hilarious, ultra-popular drag brunch books up months in advance.
