Palace Cafe, The Best Spot to People Watch

    • 4.5

About a month ago, my husband and I traveled to New Orleans. I was a guest judge for a TV Show that came to New Orleans. It was an amazing experience. The summer of 2017 the show will air. I will speak more on the TV show and the experience at that time.

Following the event my husband and I headed to the hotel to rest up. We were trying to figure out where we wanted to eat. Normally when we go to New Orleans, we always strive to try new places.

My husband made Dinner reservations at The Palace Cafe. The restaurant was in walking distance of our hotel, so we decided to take the walk. The night was nice and cool. As we arrived, we saw tables and chairs outside of the restaurant with bright lights.

 

The patrons were sitting, eating, conversing and watching the people pass. My grandma would love a spot like this. She is a big people watcher.

When we walked into the restaurant it had a feel of an historic building. At the time, I didn’t know much about the hotel itself. When I returned home, I did a little research. Palace Cafe is housed in the historic Weirlein’s Music building.  A classic, New Orleans style restaurant with an upscale, casual feel to it. Serving up creole, contemporary food in a grand cafe with a lively atmosphere.

We were seated near the window in a corner. Which allowed us to visually see throughout the restaurant and outside.  A perfect seat in the dining room. The waiter greeted us and immediately took our drink order. I ordered the RHUBARB RUBY, pictured above. This mocktail was made with white cranberry, pomegranate, simple syrup, rhubarb bitters. So good.

After glancing over the menu, we both decided to order something warm. The hubby ordered the Seafood okra gumbo. Made with large shrimp, smoked sausage, crab meat and okra. The gumbo had a wonderful flavor.

I ordered the Turtle Soup. The Soup was superb. The flavors really popped. I’ve had my share of Turtle soup, that bowl of soup was up there on my list of favorite turtle soups. Yum.

For our appetizer, we went with Fried Oyster Bruschetta. The dish included fried oysters served on grilled baguettes with a creamy spread, basil and baby tomatoes. A beautifully presented dish. I wasn’t sure about the texture and whether the flavors would work. But the dish was really good. I love fried oysters. The spread was tasty but not overpowering.

The hubby ordered the Andouille Crusted fish which was a pan-roasted gulf fish, andouille breadcrumbs, seasonal vegetables, crystal beurre blanc, and chive aïoli. So good.

 

Interesting flavors and ingredients that all worked. I was impressed with the andouille breading. The fish was well seasoned and cooked perfectly. The aioli was light and tasty with the fish and veggies. Really good entree.

I ordered the Shrimp Tchefuncte, made with gulf shrimp, creole meunière, roasted mushrooms, warm grit cake and green onions. The shrimp in the dish were huge. Creole meuniere was a brown sauce that added a great flavor to the dish. My only complaint was that the grit cake wasn’t cooked well. The exterior was hard to eat. In the end, I decided to just eat the shrimp and mushrooms with the sauce. The shrimp were delicious.

 

The dish was beautifully presented. I loved the roasted mushrooms with the dish.

We had a little room left in our belly, so we ordered dessert. Our choice was the Bananas Foster. The Bananas Fosters is a Palace Café favorite! The dish was made with fresh bananas in brown sugar and cinnamon, then flambéed with banana liqueur and rum, served over vanilla bean ice cream. OMG, Phenomenal.

My favorite thing about this dessert was that it is sautéed tableside. Superb.
