JD Brunch Series – August

I’ve been to Elizabeth’s once before and thought it was a cute restaurant. As the curator of the brunch series, I am always on the hunt for cute and picture worthy locations. It’s located in the Marigny and Bywater area. I was a little bummed to find out they didn’t do reservations but as long as we arrived at the same time it would be all good!

Some of the ladies arrived Fashionably Late so we didn’t get to sit immediately. The restaurant was extremely busy and it was a little wait for larger parties. We headed to bar on the second floor to wait for our table. Jamming to Biggie, I sipped on my $12 Mimosa in the Signature Elizabeth’s cup. The mimosa was pretty good, but I’m warning you..don’t get the $6 mimosa it’s tiny lol. A couple of the ladies who ordered the $6 ones were a bit taken aback lol. Sidenote: The bar had really good music. Some of the ladies ordered Bloody Marys which I heard were also good.

Once we were seated, the conversation flowed as usual. We talked about everything from insomnia remedies to goals for the fall. The reason I host these monthly brunches is for creatives to connect and have genuine conversation. All of the ladies are so dope and down to earth. This series is really the highlight of my month.

The service was really great at Elizabeth’s. Our waitress was very attentive. I had a taste for catfish so I ordered the Bayou Breakfast. It wasn’t as pretty as some of the other dishes but it was really good. My catfish was fried perfectly. Elizabeth’s has a pretty unique menu with dishes like the French Toast Burrito and the Duck Waffle which is a Sweet Potato and Duck Hash on top of a Corn Bread Waffle with Pepper Jelly. I think next time I’ll be a little more adventurous and go for the waffle. Overall the group enjoyed their brunch.

My original look for brunch was totally different. Pretty Little Thing messed over me with the shipping but Raquel of SpreadLA/The Geeked Collection came through in a clutch. The brand sells sunglasses, straight sizes and plus. I saw this set and thought it was perfect. I paired it with some flat sandals and a clutch. It was very comfortable and easy to wear. Let me know what ya’ll think!

I always look forward to the group shots. The ladies always bring so much personality. Thank you to the ladies that came out Samjah of Style & Energy, Kineatra of Naturally Nex,  Tracey Wiley, Kierra of Jus Kierra, Whitney of Whitney J.
