So I finally made it over to Morrow’s. I was dying to see what all the hype was about and chile…the food lived up to the hype.
Earlier last week I attempted to call the restaurant several times to make a reservation and ended up leaving a voicemail. I arrived Sunday with my fingers crossed hoping they would be able to seat us. The hostess was very polite. She informed me that they didn’t do reservations and that it would be an hour wait. Usually an hour wait is too long for me but I had already told the ladies to meet here and I’m like ain’t no turning back now.

It turned out to be a little over an hour but hey, I couldn’t be mad the restaurant has only been opened for two weeks and it was packed! I didn’t mind waiting at the bar and conversing with the girls. I was even offered a free shot of tequila while I waited so that was a nice treat.
The restaurant is modern and chic. The music was rolling and the atmosphere was just really dope. Our waitress was pretty cool too…she communicated mostly with her eyes but somehow we knew exactly what she was saying..*giggles*. I was joined by Samjah of Style & Energy, Kineatra of Naturally Nex, Whitney of Whitney J. Decor, Nae of NASCENTBYNAE, Britt of Britt Smith, Jessica half of FatGirlNola and Sumya check out her style here .
I decided to be different and not opt for my usual chicken and waffles. I ordered the Grilled Salmon with Asparagus and Parmesan Grits. The grits were good but the salmon was seasoned perfectly…like perfectly. It’s definitely something I would order again and I highly recommend it. See some of the other dishes that made it to our table below.
We even ran into New Orleans’ young Mogul Larry Morrow who owns the restaurant with his mom, Lenora Chong.
I’ve been waiting for the weather to cooperate so I can bring out my hot pink dress. I paired it with gold earrings, my Target mules and my pineapple sunnies to complete the look!
