Commander's Palace is an institution in New Orleans. Since 1893, it has been serving up Southern cuisine and winning six James Beard Foundation Awards while doing so. Renowned chefs such as Emeril Lagasse and Paul Prudhomme had made their mark at this restaurant.
The place itself is pretty awesome. Upon entering, you are greeted by the hostess and escorted through the kitchen to your seat. There is an outdoor patio area where you can dine alfresco or opt to seat indoors where beautiful chandeliers and white tablecloths compose the room. It's a fancy restaurant without being overly pretentious mixed in with some Southern hospitality. I ended up ordering a three-course meal that costed $39.00 with a souffle for an additional $3.
|CREOLE BREAD PUDDING SOUFFLE ($9.50): All the Richness of Creole Bread Pudding Whipped up into a Light Souffle; Finished tableside with Warm Whiskey Cream. I was actually quite disappointed with this dessert. After traveling to Paris and having the most decadent souffle ever, I was expecting a light and airy dessert. It was a little dense and it wasn't as fluffy as I was hoping. I just needed it to be like this souffle .
