Fodor's Expert Review Atchafalaya
Even with reservations, expect to wait for weekend brunch at this Uptown institution, but your tastebuds will thank you later. Locals tend to linger over sultry Creole creations like eggs Tremé (boudin cake with poached eggs, popcorn crawfish, and hollandaise sauce), a DIY bloody mary bar, and jumping live jazz on Saturday and Sunday. At dinner, the food is just as delicious, but the vibe is more romantic. The shrimp and grits are a standout, but there are plenty of other excellent choices. As a bonus, the expertly cultivated wine list shows plenty of options for under $50.
