Delicious breakfast served with a heaping side of southern hospitality.
I?m very picky when eating southern cuisine at restaurants, because I feel that no one can top or even come close to my mother?s southern home cooked meals. Since I was on vacation, I thought I?d give Lil Dizzy?s a try. I?m still raving about how good the food was, I wish I was enjoying it at this moment. I wanted to sample everything on the menu, and encouraged members of my party to try something different so I could sample it. I ordered catfish, eggs and grits. I never order grits anywhere, because they are usually lumpy and have no flavor. But not at Lil Dizzy's, the grits were hot, tasty and oh so smooth. It was prepared just as my mother had cooked it herself. My friend ordered the crab and cheese omelet and it was heavenly as well. Everything was perfect, right down to the southern hospitality. I felt as if I was eating breakfast in the family kitchen, while the ladies in my family continued to prepare the meal, while listening to R&B soul music, just as I did when I was a little girl. The entire staff was friendly and helped us with our menu selections. Lil Dizzy?s is now my restaurant of choice whenever I?m in New Orleans.
