On a trip I made to NO (New Orleans) with my now ex husband we stopped at what was the most expensive breakfast ever. I only recall images of rooms, many waitstaff, delicious smells and humidity. It was glorious.
We made our way to the restaurant, be aware of parking signs. That is what cost us so much later. We were seated in a medium sized room on a two top table and I spied on the other tables to see what they were ordering. It all looked good. I knew of this place more from my ex-chef in the Grand Canyon, Esteban Colon. He Loved NO! He also copied some of these menu items to be on the menu there. The eggs Sardou being his favorite. I had only been to NO a few times and never for long or had been able to enjoy it as an adult. You know I dragged my e to Cafe du Monde the first day. A delightful cafe latte and a plate of beignet. Heaven if you can have the carbs.
I forget what was ordered. It was yummy. Here is the menu which I have kept all these years,
I collect menus from places I like.
So what made this expensive besides the food?
I parked in a bad location. The signs are confusing and can be a little misleading. If you drive there, pick a parking lot, it might save you the headache. We ended up needing a taxi to take us to the impound lot, this was a Sunday morning. They were busy, very.
I am still glad we went and I would do so again.
