From your first sip of a Sazerac to your last crumb of bread pudding soufflé, we hope you are pampered and delighted...and go ahead be a little bad...that’s what living in New Orleans is all about.
Located in an old plantation house, the service is formal but the atmosphere is fun. Head over for the best Sunday brunch in the Big Easy - and try the absinthe-and-bacon-poached oysters!
The bread pudding is outstanding.
Don’t miss traditional treats like turtle soup laced with sherry or bread pudding with whiskey sauce at the famous Commander’s Palace established in 1883. -Travel Editor
Bravo for winning "Best New Orleans Restaurant", "Best Brunch" and "Best Lunch Specials" in Gambit's 2011 Best of Poll. http://www.bestofneworleans.com/gambit/food-and-drink/Content?oid=1872096
Celebrity chef Emeril Lagasse made his name at this genteel, Victorian-style, classic Creole restaurant in the Garden District. Open since 1880, it's a great place for old-school cocktails.
Commander's Palace is the essence of nuevo creole cuisine. Consistently ranked one of the top restaurants in the world, there is no better place than CP to experience the ultimate in food and service.
The bread pudding soufle is incredible
get the .25 cent martini!
The strawberry shortcake is a must-try! The strawberries are intensely flavorful, enhanced by being cooked in their own juices without sugar being added. So good! It's like a mouth orgasm.
Eating here was near the top of my bucket list and it did not disappoint. Splurge and get the chef's table. The restaurant itself is almost as beautiful as the food. Easily the best meal of my life.
Jazz Brunch on Sundays usually includes a second line around the restaurant. The patio is beautiful, as is any room looking out onto it. And the 25cent Martini Lunch on Fridays is a must.
get the hibiscus martini! its so unique.
Bread pudding souffle
Try the Bread Pudding Souffle - There are no words. Lighter than air, almost as good as life itself. (via @Foodspotting)
Classy upscale establishment with chandeliers and everything. Try the turtle soup with sherry!
Go for brunch.
Try the Pecan Crusted Gulf Fish - ~ A Commander’s Palace Favorite ~ Prosecco poached Louisiana crabmeat, spiced pecans, and crushed corn sauce (via @Foodspotting)
This place is incredible. Don't even think about it, get the fois gras. You WILL NOT regret it.
Sit at table 550 - best table of the house, and where Bush signed NAFTA. Also, ask for the kitchen/restaurant tour at the end of your meal.
Tried the quail, pecan crusted drum fish, speckled trout, the infamous turtle soup, & bread soufflé. Was impressed with the drum & bread pudding soufflé. Everything else was edible.
Try the Soft Shell Crab - Hands down best soft shell crab I've eaten (via @Foodspotting)
Meg Foran lies when she checks into Commander's Palace.
I don't think you can go wrong with ANYTHING on the menu, I got the pecan crusted gulf fish which was amazing.
The New-Old Fashioned is an incredibly delish cocktail! I'd rec it highly. It's seasonal, so check for it! Also, the bread pudding soufflé is amazzzzzing. Must have.
Incredible Bloody Mary! Bananas Foster pancakes were b-a-n-a-n-a-s! The garlic bread is the best I've ever had!
Highly recommend the Oyster +Absinthe "Dome." Flaky pastry over rich creamy oyster broth. Small in size, huge in flavor.
Ask for Kathryn to make your bananas foster
Ask for the banana foster, it's not on the menu and it's meant for two but it's so incredible! U get the show and dessert!
$ 25 cent martinis at lunch
Best restaurant in the world! Friday's 25 cent martinis, New Orleans style, a maximum of five per person!
Everything was incredible. Don't let the good looking servers recommend a wine for you... it'll be $200 per bottle! Cheers!
Drink as many 25 cent martinis as you can and you will always leave happy.
Not normally a fan of puddingy deserts but their bread pudding soufflé is amazing!
go here for the jazz brunch, turtle soup & bread pudding souffle
Decent. Great wine list.
Amazing food, fantastic service... A must if your in town.
The bread pudding is pretty much everything it's cracked up to be. Get it.
Try the strawberry shortcake (via @Foodspotting)
You have not eaten New Orleans until you have eaten here!
Skip the standard salads and go for the Alabama Peach Salad... They should just call it bacon salad instead. Mmmm... Bacon.
What else can be said about this restaurant? The epitome of New Orleans. The food, the setting, the service. It's all good. Make reservations.
Shrimp and grits, 25c martinis
