Commander's Palace information
Commander’s Palace is a dapper host, a seer-suckered bon vivant who wows with white-linen dining rooms, decadent dishes and attentive Southern hospitality. The nouveau Creole menu runs from crispy oysters with brie-cauliflower fondue, to shrimp and grits with goat's cheese and roasted mushrooms. The dress code adds to the charm – no shorts or T-shirts; jackets preferred at dinner. It's a very nice place – but also lots of fun.
Owner Ella Brennan takes pride in her ability to promote her chefs to stardom; Paul Prudhomme and Emeril Lagasse are among her alumni. And note that some of that stiff-upper-lip formality is put on; the lunch special, after all, is the 25¢ martini. Reservations are required.
