Brunch And A Show

Brunch is great, but it’s even better when it’s paired with an entertaining stage show!

Brunch And A Show

The Country Club

Every Saturday morning, enjoy a delicious brunch at the Country Club, with truffled macaroni and cheese, quiche, pan-roasted shrimp, and chicken and waffles, while you enjoy a fun and entertaining drag show! The bottomless mimosas and raunchy humor mean this isn’t suitable for families, but if you want an adults-only meal, this is a great pick.  You will need to make a reservation, as this is a popular activity and seats are limited.

Muriel’s Jackson Square

Listen to a live jazz band while you dine at Muriel’s.  They offer some delightful Louisiana dishes, like lump crab cakes with a pork relish, shrimp and goat cheese crepes, and poached eggs with hollandaise sauce, all paired with mimosas and bloody marys.  It’s a classy and elegant brunch, perfect if you were looking for a place where you could dress up a bit.

As part of the Commander's family of restaurants, @sobounola was another place that was highly recommended and did not disappoint. Then again, any restaurant run by the legendary Brennan family of New Orleans is sure to be good! – Bonus info: SoBou is an acronym for a micro-neighborhood in "the Quarter." It means South of Bourbon. The more you know! 🌈 – Check out the slideshow to see everything we ate: 1. Cracklin' Crusted Pork Belly Steamed Buns – pickled red onions, bbq Alabama peach sauce / Yellowfin Tuna cones in the background! 2. Crispy Chicken Salad w/ watermelon, blue cheese, grilled pineapple, & habanero caramel 3. Blackened Geaux Fish – asparagus & corn risotto, confit garlic whipped cream 4. Pork Shoulder Ropa Vieja – salsa braised pork shoulder, Mexican style dirty rice, spicy avocado crema 5. @ajfernando sippin' the Slaying Orion (Don Q 151, Plantation Pineapple Rum, gin, aquavit, lime, clementine syrup, Polynesian Kiss bitters) 6. BBQ Shrimp Beignets w/ NOLA style aeoli 7. Cherries Jubilee & White Chocolate Bread Pudding w/ vanilla ice cream 8 & 9.

Another risque brunch, SoBou (short for South Of Bourbon) provides an amazing burlesque show during brunch, performed by Bella Blue.  The three course brunch menu changes regularly, but has featured in the past bottomless peach bellinis, rich and spicy gumbo, pecan and cherry bread pudding, and french toast.  As for the show, Bella is amazing at interacting with the audience during the performance, so that you really feel engaged in the show.

Stage Door Canteen

It may not have occurred to you to have brunch at the World War II museum, but you should.  The Stage Door Canteen, a restaurant designed in remembrance of places where Bettie Page, Red Skelton, and Bing Crosby performed, hosts a brunch where you can enjoy good food, like gnocchi with blue crab, while listening to live performances of 1940s music.  It’s really an entertaining show, and afterwards, you can explore the museum and learn more about life in that time.

New Orleans certainly knows how to do brunch so make sure you take advantage of the best options while you’re in town!
