Marigny Brasserie

My friend, Greg Herren (go and read his books!), and I try to meet regularly to be ‘ladies who lunch.’ There are quite a few choices in the Faubourg Marigny (a hip neighborhood that contains the Gay Triangle of LGBT Community Center, Faubourg Marigny Arts & Books, and the Community Awareness Network).

Marigny Brasserie was formerly Cafe Marigny (once they got their liquor license and could serve alcohol they went highbrow). I hadn’t been there in quite a while and they’ve completely revamped their menu. They’ve kept the Contemporary Creole cuisine and supplemented it with Italian favorites and a good selection of sandwiches. The prices are better and the food is a lot less pretentious. I had the Frenchman Street Poboy–fried green tomatoes and fried shrimp. Greg had the Brasserie Burger. Both items were very good and the waitstaff was quick on the iced tea refills while staying away enough that we could carry on our conversation without interruption.
