Jazz Brunch at Commander’s Palace, New Orleans

Av made us reservations for the jazz brunch at Commander’s Palace:

Ohmygoodness it was so fantastic! We had a really great time and it was so much fun to get dressed nicely and spend time together in the morning while listening to the jazz group!

I started with the blackberry pain perdue (soooo good), and Av had the demi cups of turtle, gumbo, and sweet potato soup:

Av’s entree was the pecan crusted fish which he loved:

…and I had the poached duck egg over duck and pecan griddle cakes (terrific!):

Dessert comes with the meal, so Av got the Creole cream cheesecake. I’ve made it (recipe and pics here) but honestly this one was even fluffier/lighter. Av’s mint julep is here too:

I had the bread pudding souffle – nice:

We were seated in the patio room – and this is the jazz group that performed. When they came to our table, we chatted for a bit and when they found out that we were expecting, they played “S’wonderful” for us (which was really great! We even chimed in with them a bit when the part of the song repeats s’wonderful, s’marvelous…)! So nice!!
