Elizabeth's Restaurant Review

: Years ago, a cadre of neighborhood regulars looked to Elizabeth's for breakfasts and brunches of praline bacon (sweet, salty and crunchy with pecans and bursting with pork fat), grillades and grits, and calas, the old-fashioned Creole rice cakes. But now the dinner menu has made its reputation. Mirliton (known elsewhere as chayote) filled with seafood, and artichokes broiled crisp and topped with manchego compete with the old favorites. Some people say you have not had the full New Orleans experience until you’ve enjoyed Elizabeth’s fried soft-shell crab with chili hollandaise sauce. Desserts are unimaginative but still tasty --- all the usual local delights are available, such as cheesecake and pecan pie. The wine list is limited to about a dozen selections, each offered by the glass or bottle. Whatever you choose for your meal, be sure to follow the slightly tongue-in-cheek sign on the wall: “Shut up and eat!”
