My goal on this trip to NOLA was to get out of the Quarter and find some local spots to eat, drink and be merry.
I set out on the first day on a bike borrowed from my guest house, The Lions Inn, with a mission. I was determined to find some great food that wouldn’t break the bank. The last two times I was in NOLA I never did find a meal that lived up to the hype. But then again I never did leave the Quarter :/
As I cruised down river on Chartres, past the New Orleans Creative Arts Center, past a huge wall of street art, I came upon Elizabeth’s Restaurant. I stopped my bike and watched a few people go in and out. Looked like locals. Maybe a few tourists, but not too many. I yelped it and decided to ride by later for lunch.
Holy shit am I glad I did. I had the redneck eggs ($14) and a Bloody Mary. Both were out of this world. Seriously. One of the best Bloody Marys I’ve EVER had and the redneck eggs. Well….I came back twice 🙂
Definitely stop by here for breakfast or brunch when you’re in town. They’re also open for dinner.
Elizabeth’s is located at 601 Gallier (at Chartres) in the Bywater.Sharing Is Caring:
