Creole / Cajun / Southern | French Quarter, New Orleans

The drag brunch was incredible! I planned it as part of the weekend for my friends who were visiting and didn’t realize until afterwards that it was their first drag show! The Ladies of Trinity are incredible performers and such down to Earth people. We had conversations after the show with a couple of the girls and they’re the most genuine people you’ll ever meet! I was a little concerned about the show since The Country Club is “the place to go” for drag brunch, but the Ladies of Trinity delivered a show stopping performance. Also, the service was great and the food was delicious. I highly recommend the boudin noir and oysters. It’s not a lot of food but it’s so packed with flavor, you don’t want any more than that. More

Steakhouse | Madisonville, Northshore

Lovely place to celebrate my husband’s 75 th Birthday. Started off with great cocktails at the bar. turtle soup was great, salmon was wonderful and his soft shell crab was wonderful. Friend’s steak was executed well. Staff was friendly, Keith Young himself stopped by to say hello. They sent out a complimentary bread pudding for his birthday. The icing on the cake for me that when my husband went to pay the bar bill, the bartender asked if I was his oldest daughter!! 😀👍 More

The whole experience was delightful. The steaks were cooked to perfection. I never looked for the waiter once. He was always there, but never hovering. Using the "Open Food" for the reservation was perfect. It was a perfect night, but, frankly this is what Pat Gallagher does consistently, More

Discover New Orleans

French, Spanish and Creole influences evolved New Orleans cuisine into a genre all its own. Combine Gulf coast seafood, a butter-based sauce and Cajun spices, and you’re looking at a classic Nola dish. Take the famed crawfish boil, for instance, which locals advise is best eaten as a family. In the aftermath of hurricane Katrina, the restaurant industry banded together to support their city in the wake of serious devastation. New restaurants began opening their doors, and today you’ll find a wealth of cuisines that span the classics to modern reinventions to everything in between.
