This atmospheric stunner sashays, with original wood, intimate balcony and patio dining, and a staircase that harks back to a golden age. As of 2016, Chef Alfred Singleton, who worked his way up from busboy to chef until Katrina devastated the restaurant, is now back in the kitchen—and a partner. His outstanding French-Creole cuisine includes the likes of blue-crab cakes and an amazing turtle soup laced with sherry, served under the watchful eyes of a bawdy George Dureau mural (which somehow survived the mold that bloomed after the flood). During Sunday brunch, live jazz fills the restaurant, providing a wonderful ambience in which to enjoy Creole classics like crawfish and andouille omelette, cheese grits, and smoked-salmon Benedict. Reserve a table on the balcony for alfresco dining.
