At least once during your next trip to New Orleans, you’re going to wake up thinking, “Things really went sideways last night after that third Hurricane.” When that happens, head east to Elizabeth’s. This place is famous for its huge breakfast and brunch dishes, like eggs Florentine topped with fried oysters and sweet potato duck hash over a cornbread waffle, along with their praline bacon. We promise, you’ll feel better afterward and if not, they also serve really solid morning cocktails for when desperation sets in.
