Heaven in a Plate of Bacon

I have two words to help you best understand Elizabeth’s: Praline Bacon.

null

Seriously. As if you could improve on bacon. But you know how when you dip your bacon in the maple syrup from your pancakes and there’s something so delicious about the salty-sweet mixture? That’s the idea behind praline bacon, but you’re adding sugar and nuts instead of syrup. It’s totally, totally amazing.

They also do a killer bloody mary at Elizabeth’s.

It’s a cute little cafe in the Bywater, a neighborhood east of the French Quarter.

It was especially busy this Sunday morning because the New York Times had just mentioned it in its “36 Hours in New Orleans” article. These dorks were holding the article outside the door of the restaurant:

null

See?

null

There are cute signs outside, too:

null

There is a downstairs part —

null

— but we ate upstairs, in ...

null

There’s a big bar and lots of TVs:

And another auxillary room off to the side. That is where we sat, among the art:

I ordered mimosa:

H and Boo:

null

The obligatory “Liz and Greg at the table” shot:

null

Jordan came along for the meal:

null

He ordered strawberry-stuffed French toast.

null

It was sinful.

Besides the bacon, we shared for the table... biscuit and gravy:

null

I don’t know what says Sunday brunch more than biscuits and gravy and strawberry-stuffed French toast.

That is, I suppose, except poached eggs over crabcakes with hollandaise and grits:

null

Close up on that?

null

Boo got the smoked salmon croque madame:

null

The hunna got sausage.

null

And H got the super-slam breakfast.... eggs over ham AND French toast underneath:

null

My only complaint were the grits. They got cold, so they were a little like one of those fake food plastic things... when you stuck your fork under the edge, the entire mound of grits came unstuck from the plate:

null

Yes, we were full.

null

But very happy indeed.

ok, between the sausage shot, and the tank at the parade, I am detecting a theme...
