No Reservation? No Problem: Easter Eats for Disorganized Diners

March 21 2012 | What's New

Don’t despair if making a reservation for Easter slipped your mind. Whether you’re looking for a casual brunch Uptown, a friendly lunch in Metairie or a decadent dinner in the French Quarter, there are still plenty of places serving up fabulous feast-day fare to mark the end of Lent. You’ve been so disciplined; don’t you deserve some fried oysters?

New Orleans Restaurants has the scoop on which local establishments are still taking Easter reservations. Take a look at each eatery's Easter openings below, and decide between 7 on Fulton (offering crawfish ravioli, pan-seared scallops, strawberry shortcake, and more), Brennan’s, with a breakfast menu including seafood okra gumbo, its famous Eggs Hussarde, and bananas Foster, and numerous other culinary contenders.
