Over the last several years, the dining category of breakfast and brunch have simply exploded
across the nation. On this week’s show, we’re looking at the popular weekend ritual in New Orleans and beyond.
We begin with Jennifer Weishaupt, founder and CEO of the Ruby Slipper Restaurant Group. The Ruby Slipper Café has prospered and multiplied in a way that Jennifer and her husband Eric could never have anticipated when they opened their very first Mid City location in 2008. She tells us about her ever-expanding breakfast and brunch empire, now serving hungry diners in locations across five states.
Then, we’re off to Tujague’s for an authentic taste of the country’s latest sensation – drag brunch. We go backstage to introduce you to some of the rollicking New Orleans drag queens who are delivering a little pizzazz to go with your eggs Benedict. Debbie with a D, Princess Stephanie, Mistie Bonét, Laveau Contraire, and Cucci Licci give us a glimpse into their lives both in and out of the spotlight.
Finally, we join Chris Jay of Stuffed and Busted on a trip to Marilynn’s Place, a popular casual dining restaurant in Shreveport that specializes in Sunday brunch. The eatery is now celebrating 10 years in business.
