My wife and I were in town for the Super Bowl and watched our Ravens again become World Champions! Muriel's was recommended by a local friend and so we decided to stop by for a late breakfast/early lunch before the big game. Great food in NOLA is the standard so we were expecting nothing less. We walked in with no reservation and were seated immediately by a smiling face. Our server Jessica was warm, knowledgable, and efficient. My wife had the shrimp and goat cheese crepes in an excellent remoulade sauce. Simply delicious. I had the shrimp and andouille sausage omelette stuffed with onions and peppers topped with a creole sauce garnished with the best homemade biscuit I've ever eaten and diced fried potatoes. Excellent. Their variation of eggs Benedict also looked incredible but I will save that for another visit.
We were also indulged with the story of Antoine the resident ghost of the property which made the mimosas and Bloody Mary's (garnished with pickled okra) taste better as we chatted. We then went and toured the upstairs which is decorated in tasteful gaudy and great. We spent the next 45 minutes on the balcony people watching with no pressure from the staff to order more drinks. Just a wonderful experience.
