Commander’s Palace


The Grande Dame of New Orleans dining. The city’s best chefs have passed through this kitchen, from Emeril to the current chef, Tory McPhail, who has kept it current. I know people might say overrated and tourist and all that, but seriously folks, there are few, if any restaurants left like this. Until Katrina, it was the oldest continuously running restaurant in the U.S. I would change flights to get back for the heavenly bread pudding, turtle soup and hot sauce shrimp with tasso and pickled onions anytime. If you can score a reso for Sunday jazz brunch, do it.
