Came in without reservations, but the staff did all they could to accommodate us. Tried several brunch items and sides, and all were outstanding! The best! The bartender, Jimmy, was a ace-quick, personable and very attentive. Don't miss this place!

A true gourmet experience, kind of small and intimate. Funky old house in fun neighborhood. We went for dinner and again for brunch and were blown away by the excellent staff. The food was wonderful and original, beautifully presented. Will be out first stop next trip to NO.

We made reservations online for Saturday Brunch and it was a great new adventure. By taxi, we found this restaurant in a funky old home in a sort of residential area. Our table was waiting for us and we were thrilled since we had seen a line forming outside the door of the restaurant. We started with the Bloody Mary Bar where you can make your favorite drink with numerous flavors and vegetables. The eggs benedict dishes were outstanding! Very attentive staff yet we never felt rushed. Loved it!

One of the best meals we had in NO was brunch at Atchafalaya in the Garden District. Our waiter was very helpful and friendly and suggested we start with their make-your-own Bloody Mary bar. Fun! Unfamiliar with their vast assortment of ingredients, I made mine way too spicy but memorable. Delicious cornbread and jalapeño muffins followed. I had the shrimp and grits and they were absolutely wonderful! My wife loved their fish tacos. The decor is very charming with paintings by local artists displayed everywhere. Outdoor seating, a cool bar area. I highly recommend!

A casual place with dynamite food. All kinds of locally-themed and sourced dishes. Excellent service from the knowledgeable staff. Amazing Bloody Mary veggie bar.
