Cafe Adelaide Restaurant Review

: Chef Carl Schaubhut has whimsically titled his cuisine “Playful Modern Creole.” That’s a fitting moniker, since Café Adelaide in the Loews New Orleans Hotel is inspired by the late Adelaide Brennan, whose joie de vivre reportedly took her around the world. This establishment still harbors her spirit in the Swizzle Stick Bar, renowned for mixing up creative, modern cocktails. A 2014 facelift brought the place into the twenty-first century, complete with Warhol-inspired portraits of Adelaide herself. The kitchen exults in blending traditional New Orleans fare (try the proper, dark-roux seafood gumbo) and Southern fun (the duck finger sandwiches with herbed goat cheese make a fine lunch). No Brennan family restaurant would be without its shrimp rémoulade; the shrimp is seasoned with boiling spices and served with a cold, creamy sauce lifted by the addition of Cognac. Creole tradition rules in the dessert to target, a banana sundae. The extensive wine list is likely to provide an appropriate pairing with your meal, and the staff is well-educated as to the offerings. By the way, here's where you should enjoy pain perdu (New Orleans french toast) served with cane syrup for breakfast.
