Elizabeth’s | #TCEatsNOLA

P1010711

Chef Bryon Peck’s homey from-scratch cooking is as downhome as it gets. I loved my time digging into a big Southern style breakfast while admiring the vibrant folk art on walls (inside and out), at his laid back and creaky floored Bywater restaurant Elizabeth’s.

A ginormous portion (even by American standards) of shrimp and grits with a side of praline bacon “pig candy” and a biscuit was heartily scrumptious – especially that pig candy. A strong cup of coffee regularly refilled with a bit of flirty sass from a friendly waitress made the meal that much more of a late morning treat.

Compared to many of my other 18 New Orleans eats, Elizabeth’s success came across as a lot less dependent on the tourist trade and hallmark occasions and more about establishing a history of rapport with local regulars looking for good eats at a pretty decent price. If I lived around there, I’d be planning a next visit midway through any meal there.

For no fuss Deep South flavours made right, I can think of few places better to recommend.

Elizabeth’s is located at 601 Gallier Street, 70117. Find out more at elizabethsrestaurantnola.com.
