I finally had FRENCH ONION SOUP at Copeland’s Cheesecake Bistro!
Traditional rich beef broth of stewed onions topped with toasted French bread, smothered with melted Swiss and Mozzarella cheeses. I can not tell you how cheesy and delicious it was! I savored every spoonful of onion, bread and cheese! Mmm mm mmm..

Branson ordered the FRENCH CLUB- Thinly sliced roasted turkey breast, crisp smoked bacon, lettuce, sliced tomatoes and garlic mayonnaise stacked on toasted French bread.

I totally understand how the BBQ SHRIMP LINGUINE is a CCB Classic! Jumbo shrimp sautéed with green onions, Creole seasoning and lemon butter garlic sauce over linguine in our original cheese pizza bowl. The pasta, bread and shrimp had soOo much flavor!

Copeland’s Cheesecake Bistro is one of my fav restaurants! Their food is absolutely amazing and the dining experience is one of the most cozy, romantic Southern experiences you can ask for.

Sirloin steak well done with a loaded baked potato, fresh garden salad and sourdough baguettes!  

I ordered the Pork Ribeye with mashed potatoes and gravy! Nom nom nom!

The Ember’s Original Bourbon House is another one of my favorite restaurants in New Orleans, probably due to their perfect location on Bourbon Street and incredible cuisine! This time we didn’t sit upstairs on the balcony, but opted for a beautiful window seat by Bourbon! As we sat enjoying our meal, the hustle and bustle of Mardi Gras festivities continued outside! 

So stop by Embers: The Original Bourbon House
700 Bourbon Street at St. Peter
(504) 523-1485 (and try their French Onion Soup, it’s my FAV! Due to it being Mardi Gras they had a special menu but any other time of the year you HAVE to order some!)

Our New Orleans trip would not be complete without visiting Oceana! It’s one of my favorite restaurants off Bourbon Street!

Our seats had amazing views of the chaos that is Mardi Gras…we actually witnessed Mardi Gras Cops passing right by our window! 

…And Crabcakes fans listen up…Oceana’s crabcakes are to die for! Famous! I can’t believe we didn’t order some as our appetizer this time! I had to take a pic of their menu, couldn’t help but notice the gator…Louisiana classic!

So the next time you’re in New Orleans, stop by  
739 Conti (Corner of Conti and Bourbon) • (504) 525-6002
HOURS: Breakfast 8am-1pm • Lunch 10am-4pm • Dinner 4pm-1am
