New Orleans is such a brunch-rich town that it’s hard to pick just one favorite mid-morning spot. When hard-pressed, we’ll name this Riverbend gem from chef Jason Goodenough (and trust us, his plates are more than good enough). Rich, expertly prepared brunch dishes include a standout poutine strewn with cheese curds, crispy bacon, sausage gravy and fried eggs, and a “biscuits and debris,” cornbread biscuits smothered in juicy braised oxtail and spicy hollandaise. For sweets-lovers, there’s an insane cream cheese-stuffed French toast served with blueberry jam and powdered sugar
