This past Sunday, I was at home per the usual and wanted brunch. I sent a message to my favorite blogger who knows all things about brunching in NOLA, Jazmine. I told her that I wanted bottomless mimosas and she suggested that I go here. I didn't want to go into the busy French Quarter for brunch and drive around for 30 minutes to find parking and this location was perfect located Uptown, on Magazine Street. As with most architecture here for businesses, the restaurant is inside of a renovated home which I love about places here in NOLA. Even the host said, "They (city of New Orleans) aren't tearing down nothing, they'll just renovate it." This gives you that laid back, southern comfort of home.
As you can see from the sign, bottomless mimosas are available and they were delicious. In this restaurant, the mimosas are already made in a pitcher and easily poured as I needed by the bartender. I ordered a traditional mimosa, I don't recall if there were others to choose from on the menu. Next time I visit, I'll have to indulge in their bottomless Bloody Mary's.
Bottomless mimosas are usually somewhere between $12-$15. I've been pretty good with watching how many mimosas I have during these boozy brunches because mimosas can get you tipsy real quick.
Although I like my mimosas with just a splash of orange juice in it, I felt a little buzzed by my fourth glass lol. I really felt buzzed once I got home and decided to take a nap, which are all great things to do and feel on the perfect Sunday afternoon lol.
The bartender was so kind and poured me a to-geaux cup of mimosa as I closed out my tab. I finished that cup once I got home.
I've heard of shrimp and grits before of course, but I've never heard of a braised pork and grits. According to the menu and my stomach agrees, this delicious meal includes: braised pork grillades, creole gravy, cheesy tasso grits and butter dipped french bread biscuit. This dish was a hearty portion and I took home leftovers. I didn't taste it but the grits were cheesy and that's possibly due to the creole gravy that's so good with a hint of spiciness to it. I didn't eat the butter dipped french bread biscuit at the restaurant but I did eat it later that evening and it was so delicious.
Ladies, if you decide to go to brunch with your partner, he can watch the game and enjoy cocktails or beers while you two brunch. I sat at the bar area where they have multiple flat screens for your partner's entertainment as well. If you're ever in the area, looking for some good food, good bottomless mimosas and great customer service, check out Mahony's.
