The Hungry Nomad: Commander's Palace (New Orleans, USA)

January 20, 2012

Commander's Palace (New Orleans, USA)

Oh my! Where to begin on this one? I guess I'll begin by telling you that this is my most favourite spot for Sunday brunch in the city.   What makes it so amazing you ask? Imagine yourself walking through doors back in time. At first you are greeted by the friendly staff and escorted to your table. If you are lucky enough to go for Sunday brunch you'll immediately be surrounded by Jazz musicians. Then it is time for the food. Chef Tory McPhail creates a combination of haute Creole and Louisiana inspired cooking on every plate (see menu). During the week you also get 25 cent martinis! Really! 

Around since 1880, Commander's Palace is history served on a platter. The restaurant is located in the Garden District directly across from the famous Lafayette Cemetery. So, on a foggy day in late December the Count and I embarked on a a culinary journey through time to Commander's Palace. As soon as we sat down, we were served martinis, warm bread and butter. For our starters, of course the turtle soup (that is one of the main reasons we keep going back), its creamy with the right amount of spices and sherry making every spoonful  heaven in your mouth. 

For our main dishes, we had the Quail and Gulf Coast shrimp pasta. Both delicious as always. If I had to choose between meals, I definitely choose the restaurant's brunch menu over their lunch and dinner menu. However, that is not to say that I don't thoroughly enjoy lunch each and every time...because I do.   The best part as always is dessert: this time we ordered the strawberry shortcake and their world renown bread pudding souffle which is truly to die for.
