Living Large on the Lakefront – Midnight Menu +1 – It’s New Orleans
Back in the day – pre Katrina and Ivan and a bunch of other wicked storms that killed them off one at a time – the New Orleans Lakefreont was a mecca of seafood restaurants.
Fitzgerald’s, Sid-Mar’s, Brunings, and more, Lakefront dining was an integral part of growing up in New Orleans.
Eventually they all ended up like this – washed into Lake Pontchartrain beyond repair. And that’s how it’s been since Katrina. Every single restaurant wiped off the face of the earth. Until now. Now there’s Brisbi’s.
Built from the lake and ground up by John Brisbi and spearheaded in the kitchen by Chef David de Felice who literally grew up in the kitchen of his family-owned Pascal’s Manale, Brisbi’s is bringing back the Lakefront.
