A great jazz brunch on a rainy Sunday in the Big Easy...What could be better???Music was provided by excellent jazz quartet and even the food can stand up to any northern brunch-any where,anytime. Everything is first-class; starting with the never-empty champagne glass of mimosas,proceeding to the delecatable and regional cuisine offered at the brunch table and ending with the sounds of sweet jazz emanating out into the courtyard( where we had our after dinner drinks). I started my meal with an array of fresh salads, fresh croissants and smoked salmon that tasted just-caught. The "requisite" omelet chef was there serving made-to-order egg concoctions.. I passed on these to leave room for grits, eggs Benedict, andouille sausage, gumbo and Creole rice. I finished this off with a tiny piece of banana bread pudding with vanilla sauce (yum). The food and service was 10 times better than any average brunch and was worth the $38-a-head price.
