I will be in NO for my birthday on Sunday, October 17th. My brother and his wife will be joining me. We will not be able to go out that evening, so brunch or lunch will be my birthday celebration. During my first trip to NO in January, I had brunch at Commander's Palace, and found it somewhat disappointing (I had been told that eating at Commander's was like dying and going to heaven, so it had a lot to live up to!) But I've heard things may be be changing for the better there now. My brother has never been to NO before, so it would be nice for him to have a special experience too.
What would be your recommendation for Sunday brunch or an afternoon lunch that would be a special birthday experience?
We will be going out the Saturday evening before as well. I am thinking Bayona for that, as my brother doesn't want super heavy food. Happy to hear any thoughts on this as well.
