A guest room at the Omni Royal Orleans in New Orleans

While most of New Orleans' notable restaurants showcase regional cuisine, the Rib Room stands apart with its spotlight on prime rib. That doesn't mean this place lacks a Big Easy vibe. In fact, it's a true local, from its location on Royal Street in the French Quarter to its Sunday Jazz Brunch featuring Sugar Bear and the Jazz Cats. As for its Sunday menu, you'll find a wealth of New Orleans' flavors, such as turtle soup, pan-fried chicken livers with Creole cream cheese grits, Pontchartrain blue crab and grilled red fish with Andouille sweet potato hash. There's also a selection of prime rib on the menu, and if you want just a taste, you can order the Croque Royal, made with prime rib debris, goat cheese Béchamel and a pan-fried egg. Dining here is more than just a fun way to while away a few weekend hours. It's about partaking in local history by joining a guest list that has included The Rolling Stones, Louis Armstrong, Paul Newman and Muhammad Ali.
