We walked a few blocks to the COURT OF TWO SISTERS for our scrumptious all you can eat brunch. It was ever so wonderfully, delightfully delicious. I started with sliced beef that was so tender it practically melted in my mouth. Moving down the line, a cup of gumbo, some soft bacon, a couple bbq ribs, red beans and rice and the softest, fluffiest homemade buttermilk biscuit you can imagine. I swear I haven’t tasted such a heavenly delight since I was a kid.
Lucille loves their Turtle Soup with Sherry and since I have never been a fan of turtle; was hesitant to give it a try but then there was Darlene seated not far from me . Ooh-ing and ahh-ing over it so I gave it a shot. Much to my surprise…..I could really dig it. It was nice. KATTRAX included a Mimosa or Bloody Mary for everybody and all loved that little treat. I went back for the Apple Cobbler and grabbed another fluffy biscuit on my way. Damn, those biscuits were off the richter!!
As usual, I made my early departure, left them enjoying to the max. I finalized the bill and made my way back to the comfort of my hotel. The Carousel Bar is off the lobby and no matter the time of day or night, it’s always poppin. It attracts folks that aren’t even guests here hoping to get a ride on the carousel. This hotel is quite the Kat’s Meow, a Grand legend and I love it.
So, everyone is on their own now to enjoy the city…..some will do the Whitney Plantation tour or City Tour tomorrow. This is the beginning of the Mardi Gras Celebration and there will be a parade tonight plus some Zulu parties, all leading up to February 13th. As for me, I’m chillin like a west coast villain ….I’m off til we fly home Monday. I had my charbroiled oysters yesterday at DRAGOS, will hit NEYOW’S CREOLE CAFE tonight and DEANIES SEAFOOD tomorrow.
Will I do this again? Absolutely! Maybe in June, maybe in August. Stay tuned for details.
