Praline Connection Restaurant Review: Found just a short walk from the French Quarter and smack in the middle of Frenchmen Street's music scene, this local favorite specializes in satisfying Creole fare. Dishes with descriptors that include “stewed,” “smothered” and “fried” shape the offerings. Dining rooms have white walls adorned with black curtains and lined with shelves displaying the kitchen's packaged wares and other local edibles. Treasured treats include fried or stewed chicken with greens, home-style gumbo, jambalaya, several varieties of beans and rice, stuffed peppers and sweet potato pie. Praline bread pudding is a belt-busting delight; the connecting confectionery also dispenses pralines and other sweets, all made on the premises. Praline Connection has an outlet in Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport, just in case you want to take some pralines home, but to enjoy the authentic experience, go to the main location. If you plan a whole evening at the French Quarter bars, this is the ideal place to fortify yourself first.
