"And on the seventh day, God gave us brunch." - unknown
Just as on any given Sunday in the fall in NOLA, I was on the hunt for bottomless mimosas. Brian and I headed to Flamingo A-Go-Go restaurant for brunch and we were not disappointed at all from the excellent customer service and the colorful views indoors and outdoors at the restaurant.
It was of course, the day that the New Orleans Saints played the Buffalo Rams so there were people everywhere in Saints apparel. Parking wasn't hard to find in the area probably because of the time that we decided to go there (noonish).
I was delighted to see upon our arrival, the beautiful and colorful walls and art at the entrance. This was a prelude of what was in store for us indoors and outdoors at the restaurant. We were immediately seated by the hostess and our waiter, promptly introduced himself immediately following. Now of course, I had my eyes on the bottomless mimosas until I saw on the menu, bottomless sparkling Rosé....it was the hardest decision I've ever made at brunch lol. Nevertheless, I chose the traditional mimosa.
I ordered the Shrimp A-Go-Go which consisted of fried Gulf shrimp, red pepper aioli, macadamia nut, green onion, grilled pineapple, corn salad. Brian ordered the chicken and waffles with a side of grits, fried eggs and bacon. The servers were definitely generous with making sure that my mimosas never reached the bottom and even gave me one to-geaux. Take a look at their menu here.
We brunched indoors because I don't play around with NOLA'S heat but outside dining is available as the weather permits. There's plenty of flatscreen tv's all around so that you won't miss your favorite sports game. There's actually a seating area on top of that army truck in the photo, how cool is that? Inside they have a bar area or traditional style restaurant seating. They serve daiquiris, alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.
Who's ready to FLAMINGLE?
According to the story on their website, "Flamingo A-Go-Go is bringing the flock party to the corner of St. Joseph & Magazine Street in the Warehouse District of New Orleans. Our restaurant & bar is throwing back to the "good old days" and giving props to modern day pop culture and local art. Flock this way, y'all!" This restaurant serves lunch, brunch, dinner and what they call, a second dinner.
Inside of the restaurant, was a huge map where you can pin where you're from. Of course, CHICAGO was already pinned but it was cool finding it on the map. In addition to eating, they had cool games outdoors like Jenga and lounge areas where you could play cards or talk more intimately if that's your type of vibe. Overall, I had a great experience at Flamingo A-Go-Go and I will definitely flamingle my way back there soon.
