French Quarter Grille

Cajun/CreoleNorth$10-$25

Meals begin with baskets of warm rolls paired with the house herb butter, but save room for desserts such as croissant bread pudding and orange-infused crème brûlée. Rib Eye Pontchartrain, French Quarter Salmon, and Chicken Benjamin round out the list of New Orleans' favorites on the menu. Folk art murals and Mardi Gras masks evoke the French Quarter as much as the cuisine here.

Sawyer & Co.

Cajun/Creole, Southern/Down-HomeLower East$10-$25

The anachronistic friendliness of the service welcomes, while the Breaux Bridge Benedict seals the deal at brunch. Exuberantly rouxed pork grillades over creamy grits may compete at midday, but at dinner the crawfish étouffée rules.
