Venue Info

You'd be hard-pressed to find a more exceptional brunch than that of Atchafalaya, a hidden Irish Channel gem serving up contemporary Louisiana cuisine and craft cocktails inside a homey, art-filled space. With dishes like the namesake Eggs Atchafalaya (poached eggs, fried green tomatoes, jumbo lump crab, hollandaise), duck hash, and chicken & andouille gumbo, it seems impossible to imagine a better brunch lineup -- that is, until you discover there's a fully stocked Bloody Mary bar. Dinner is more than worth your time as well, when plates like pan-seared gulf swordfish, shrimp & grits, and truffled fried chicken breast are prepared with precision.
