Breakfast at Brennan's, an omelette at the Camellia Grill (grand reopening, April 20, 2007!!) or Sunday jazz brunch at Commander's Palace... ahhhhh!
For those of you who are morning people (unlike myself, unfortunately), New Orleanian cuisine provides a wealth of heavenly breakfasts, from the fancy egg dishes of our grand restaurants, to French doughnuts at Cafe du Monde to rice calas from the street. Bon matin, et bon appetit!
