Palace Café Review
Occupying what used to be New Orleans's oldest music store, this Dickie Brennan stalwart is a convivial spot to try some of the more imaginative contemporary Creole dishes, such as crabmeat cheesecake, shrimp in Creole meunière sauce, and pepper-crusted duck breast with foie gras. Desserts, especially the white-chocolate bread pudding and the house-made ice creams, are luscious. Drugstore-tile floors and stained cherrywood booths set the mood. The wraparound mezzanine is lined with a large mural depicting the city's famous musicians, such as Louis Armstrong, Fats Domino, and Aaron Neville. The outdoor sidewalk café is just for small plates and wine. The Sunday jazz brunch is New Orleans all the way.
