Simply put, it was the best omelet I've ever had. I ordered the cajun omelet , which was stuffed with jambalaya and topped with a crawfish sauce. Regardless of the fact that the sauce and the jambalaya were delicious, the omelet itself consisted of the lightest, fluffiest eggs I can remember. My fiancee built her own omelet, which was delicious as well.
The Back Kitchen also serves items ranging from crawfish and tasso hash, grits, and alligator sausage (!) for breakfast (breakfast is served until 2pm), to muffaletta, oysters Rockefeller, gumbo, jambalaya, etoufee, and stuffed crab for dinner. Unfortunately we did not get a chance to try the dinner menu, but we will most definitely go back when we visit New Orleans again. All of the items are reasonably priced - $8.95 for my omelet, to $10.95 for the crawfish etoufee on the dinner menu. The service was initially chilly, but after a few minutes we were talking to our server and the only other occupied table about everything from teaching to college football. It was a completely enjoyable experience, and I can't recommend it highly enough. Coffee drinkers be warned, though - you can have coffee, but they don't serve espresso or cappuccino. The Back Kitchen is open from 7:30 to 11:30 for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
