Fodor's Review

Down-home cooking in the southern Creole style is the forte of this very Southern restaurant just a few blocks from the French Quarter. The fried or stewed chicken, smothered pork chops, fried chicken livers, and collard greens are definitively done, and the soulful filé gumbo, peas with okra, and sweet-potato pie are welcome in a neighborhood otherwise in short supply of soul food. Add a congenial staff and a comfortable dining room, and the result is a fine place to enjoy a relaxing mealtime. The adjacent sweetshop holds such delights as sweet-potato cookies and Creole pralines. An outpost of the restaurant serves hungry travelers at Louis Armstrong International Airport.

Praline Connection Review

I did not eat a full meal at Praline Connection, but I did stop into the sweets shop to get a Praline. Thanks to my Fodors travel guide, I knew how to pronounce it correctly (prah-leen). There were several flavors to choose from, but I went with the Original. Very sweet! It's pretty big, too. You could definitely share with a few people, as it's too sweet to eat in one sitting (in my opinion). If you're in the Marigny, stop by.
