We discovered La Peniche while heading to another restaurant for dinner and the menu just said " you must come back". So we were there the next morning for breakfast. They are open 24 hours. We rise earlier than most travelers in New Orleans so there was not a crowd. The service was good and the breakfast was a "very southern"...bacon , eggs, grits and biscuts with gravy. Who could ask for more?
After a day of touring old sugar plantations and getting stuck in traffic due to an accident on the freeway, we returned for a late dinner that same evening. My partner had some fantastic fried chicken livers with sauteed onions and I enjoy a plate of their fried chicken ( very dark and crisp on the outside, but tender and juicy on the inside. The vegetables were not over done and the bar serves some really fortified drinks ...which we needed after the long drive back into town. We learned that their busiest hours are after many of the restaurant close for the evening and the industry people gather there to dine...so that alone says a lot.
