Café Adelaide

Creole in CBD & Warehouse District

This jazzy restaurant is a Brennan family tribute to their endearingly eccentric aunt Adelaide. We love the pop-art portraits of her that hang above the dining room. The motto here is the namesake’s own: ‘Eat, drink and carry on,’ a philosophy realized by haute Creole cuisine – garlic and chili shrimp, Cajun-roasted drum fish, and pork shoulder cooked in milk.

It’s all as good as it sounds, and the attached Swizzle Stick is one of downtown’s better bars.
