Burlesque Brunch: Legs and Eggs!
With our friends at New Orleans Ice Cream - look for special treats on the menu
Sundays, 11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. 

How about some legs with your eggs?! Join us for Sunday brunch with a kick. World-famous burlesque dancer Bella Blue performs to live music while you dine on three creative Creole courses by Chef Juan Carlos Gonzalez. New Orleans has a long history with burlesque dancing. Our city was a burlesque hot spot from the 1940s to when clubs were shut down in the 1960s. We hope you enjoy our homage to this historic and beautiful art form.
