Katie’s, New Orleans, LA Report #102

 

I’m 2 for 2 as far as great meals go this weekend.  Had a great meal yesterday at Peche (Report #101) where everything was delicious, and the same today with Sunday Brunch at Katie’s.  Everything was delicious!

Katie’s is on a back street in a residential New Orleans neighborhood.  If you don’t go looking for it you’d never know it was there.  But it’s worth looking for.  You know you’re in New Orleans when the bar is packed and busy at 9:15 AM on a Sunday morning!

We started off with the crab cakes.  Two big jumbo lump crab cakes, coated in panko bread crumbs and fried, served with remolaude sauce and more lump crab meat on top for good measure.  These were some of the best crab cakes I’ve ever had.  A must try if you’re a crab cake connoisseur!

My dining partner wanted to try a little of everything, so she went with the Scotie’s Special Breakfast.  Scrambled eggs, poached eggs, hash browns, cheese grits, bacon, sausage, a half biscuit covered in a brown debris gravy and the other half covered in a kind of BBQ sauce tasting gravy.  She said everything was great, however her grits were cold.  We advised our waiter and immediately got another bowl steaming hot.  The staff here was great and very friendly.

I decided on the Eggs Cochon, which were an Eggs Benedict served with basically, pulled pork, instead of Canadian Bacon.  Very good.  I’d definitely order them again.

For dessert we split the Lemon Ricotta Pancakes.  The online menu I looked at before we decided to come here said the pancakes were made with ricotta cheese and lemon zest and served sprinkled with powdered sugar.  The menu we were handed when we got here said they were three pancakes spread with lemon curd and that’s what we got.  They were utterly DELICIOUS!  You didn’t even need syrup but I had to have syrup just because I was eating pancakes and I’ve eaten them that way all my life.  And there was a definite plus to the lemon curd spread on top.  You know how, when you’re eating plain pancakes, you can’t put syrup on all of them all at once because they’ll absorb the syrup and it just isn’t the same as having fresh syrup poured on top?  Well, with these, the lemon curd acts as a protective coating and stops the syrup from being absorbed!  Like when you wax your car to protect it.  Truly wonderful.

I asked the waiter if they used ricotta cheese in them because I couldn’t taste any.  He said they did, plus added lemon zest to the batter.  These are great.  Another must if you dine here.

Wonderful dining experience.  I highly recommend this place.

SUPPLEMENTAL REPORT

Back to Katie’s for Sunday Brunch.  They seated us upstairs.  I didn’t even know there was an upstairs!  And the last time I was here I didn’t have a Tabasco Hot Sauce caddy on my table.  Very nice variety.  Habanero, Chipotle, Jalapeño, Sweet & Spicy, Buffalo and of course, plain Tabasco Hot Sauce.  The Chipotle is my favorite.

There was a “Crawfish Etouffee Omelet w/cheese, green onions and andouille sausage” on the specials board and I decided on that.  Reading the description I thought the crawfish etoufee would be the star of the dish, but it wasn’t.  It was an andouille omelet with crawfish etoufee on top, and there were only two crawfish tails in the entire dish.  tasted pretty good but I was very disappointed.

All the other dishes were great.  Chicken and waffles, Eggs Benedict and a breakfast pizza topped with scrambled eggs, bacon, Italian sausage, potatoes and green onions with a garlic butter sauce.

Great place, good food.

SUPPLEMENTAL REPORT:

Katie’s for lunch today!  We had the Crawfish Beignet, Crab Cakes, Veggie Muffaletta and the Katherine’s Cajun Cuban Sandwich.

Here’s the food:

Where else can you dine under a deer head wearing Mardi Gras beads?  The crawfish beignet was just ok.  Not like what I’d consider a beignet at all.  A big piece of stuffed, kind of dense crust.  Good bit of crawfish in it, but in all the dish wasn’t very flavorful.  I wouldn’t order it again

The crab cakes were delicious.  Loved the big chunks of jumbo lump crabmeat on top.  But we had to ask for more remoulade sauce.  Seems like nowhere ever gives you enough.  So if you order them just ask for extra from the start.

One of my dining partners is a vegetarian and she had the veggie muffaletta.  She said it was great.  The bread was excellent and toasted perfectly.

I had the Cuban sandwich.  I didn’t care for it.  It was pressed, as all Cuban sandwiches are, but maybe a little too much.  Kind of pressed into the density of plywood.  And the pulled pork was pretty dry.  I was disappointed.

Still a great place that I recommend.

Overdue for another visit here!  We had:

The food:

Everything was great.  I especially loved that Pagani Flatbread.  The ribs were tender and the sauce delicious.  For dessert we ordered lemon Doberge cake.  The icing was a little too sweet for my taste, but my dining partners thought it was great.

Great place!
