Choose a three-course breakfast from the prix fixe menu ($36). Try the strawberries with double cream for an appetizer, followed by Eggs Hussarde. This rich concoction combines poached eggs, Holland rusks, Canadian bacon, hollandaise sauce, and marchands de vin.
Dinner offers an equally divine set of choices. Another prix fixe menu ($48) by chef Lazone Randolph includes seafood gumbo--chock-full of crab, shrimp, and okra-- and blackened redfish. Grilled with just the right amount of spice, the dish is a great entrée to pair with Creole White Chocolate Mousse Pie, some of the best calories you'll ever consume. 417 Royal Street; www.brennansneworleans.com or (504) 525-9711.
