Why go? Upmarket American fixture that draws a crowd with New Orleans–inspired cuisine in handsome digs; great for dinner or weekend brunch.

What to order? The menu has been revitalized with an array of Cajun and Creole flavors but all versions of Louisiana classics remain on the menu, like crawfish etouffée, fried okra and Elite’s signature Meetinghouse biscuits (which we highly recommend). We also enjoy the chef’s modern takes on traditional dishes such as muffaletta chopped salad.

Pipsqueak tip Many items on the menu come in two sizes – perfect for little ones who want to adventure beyond the kids menus. oh, and make a reservation to avoid the lines!
