Paul's Favorites

Commander's Palace Restaurant

1403 Washington Ave, New Orleans, LA 70130

"Commander's Palace is the destination dining spot in New Orleans. Everybody goes there for the famous Sunday brunch."


430 Dauphine St, New Orleans, LA 70112

"It's not traditional New Orleans food; it's more contemporary but very well done. Local people really support it."

Brigtsen's Restaurant

723 Dante St, New Orleans, LA 70118

"Brigtsen's is one of those good, straightfoward New Orleans cooking places. [Frank Brigtsen] gives it his own touch once in a while, and he does a very good job at it."
