The Columns Hotel - Sunday brunch

The Columns Hotel is a landmark in New Orleans. It has been depicted in many movies and it is a very genteel place to have a drink in its porch while you see the trolley, framed by glorious oak trees, passing by, or you can eat inside as we did. The Sunday brunch has different choices but I will comment on what we had. The seafood gumbo was very nice, the turtle soup not so much. The fried prosciutto in the arugula salad was too salty. Instead of the drum fish with a half soft shell crab, I asked the chef to give me a whole one without the fish. What an epicurian treat. It was the best part of the meal, large, meaty, juicy and in the lightest of batters with the meniere sauce under it, not to make it saggy. It alone was worth the price of the meal, which, by the way, was reasonable. The dessert - bread pudding or pie a la mode - was good. There was the ubiquitous complimentary mimosa and an excellent guitarist who took requests and made the whole affair memorable. We had a lovely time. We recommend it.

Now understand, it was a perfect day. No humidity and in the Mid-70's. Now picture sitting on the large porch of a Southern Mansion over looking huge Oak Trees, a beautiful Southern Garden and the Street Cars passing down St. Charles Ave. Now add a Jazz Guitarist and a fabulous waiter. I couldn't think of a better way to spend a Sunday Morning.

The food was fabulous, our waiter was generous with the Mimosas and coffee!

Don't miss it when you are in New Orleans on a Sunday Morning.

Again we did not stay here overnight but I didn't see a place to review the bar. We enjoyed our strong, reasonably priced drinks on the patio of the Columns Hotel in the Garden District as a respite from the afternoon humidity. Watching the streetcar, the walkers, and enjoying the garden was delightful.
