If you can swing it, make time for the Sunday Brunch at Commander's Palace, if for only a wonderful bloody mary and marvelous beignets. Thanks to this message board for recommending, I really never knew there was one outside of New Orl. I had the brunch combo: trio of soups, an entree special of pulled pork with grits and beignets and a very strong Cafe du Monde coffee, which was much needed after only an hour of sleep. Its well worth it and very enjoyable. Service is great, atmosphere is equally so. Thanks Chowhounds for the recommend, and I second you all.
