Greg and I have been taking dance classes in preparation for our first dance at our wedding. But don’t tell anyone, because we’re totally planning on playing it off like our flawless dance was just a spur of the moment thing!
Before one recent rehearsal, we decided to get brunch at 1803 in the Financial District. The restaurant is inspired by New Orlean’s Spanish, French, and Cajun food traditions, and you feel like you’re in Nola the minute you step through the doors.
Isn’t that wallpaper fabulous?!
As fun as the inside is, we decided to take advantage of the nice weather and dine al fresco. It was our first time doing so this season!
We began with drinks and “casual” pictures for the blog.
And then we dug into the Crawfish Croquettes served with Cajun aioli.
For his main course, Greg had the Spring Pea Salad with mixed greens, avocado, chia seeds, goat cheese, and a flax oil sherry.
And I dined on the Pulled Pork Benedict which was poached eggs on a biscuit topped with hollandaise, and served with home fries and the house salad. It was SO good!
1803 (named for the year of the Louisiana Purchase) is a fun restaurant with delicious food. It’s one of those places that makes you feel like you’re on vacation, even if you’re not! I definitely recommend giving 1803 a try. You can find out more information, and make a reservation, here.
And now, after eating at 1803, I’m even more excited for my upcoming trip to New Orleans!
