NOLA Yum: Our First Time at Morrow’s
Technically, this was our second visit to Morrow’s. The first time, we went just after they first opened, they were a little understaffed that day which made the wait nearly two hours, so we decided to try again another time. But even during that first visit, we recognized that Morrow’s would be a “see and be seen” type hot spot. We spotted Alvin Kamara from the New Orleans Saints hanging out there that first time, and people were dressed like good effort was made. Morrow's kind of reminded me of the mildly high profile hot spots we used to frequent in Los Angeles back when I attended school there.
We returned to Morrow's one Sunday for brunch which is all they do on Sundays from 10:30am - 5pm. I ordered the Chicken and Waffle, hot coffee and a mimosa ($5 during Sunday Brunch) and the Mr. ordered the grilled Salmon, asparagus and grits. Yummy on the seasoning and flavors Morrow's! Ron's salmon dish especially, I ate all of my food, but I also couldn't stop myself from eating his.
The vibe at Morrow's is somewhat lounge like with Hip Hop and R&B music playing at club volume. A lot of the folks who work there look like part-time actors or models. The hostess' makeup was done to perfection and so was her hair, but she was also very attentive, accommodating and sweet. Our second trip to Morrow's definitely solidified a third. We'd like to go back for dinner and try the Korean Bibim Bap Bowl (the owner is Black and Korean) and and I've had my eye on their Cajun Crawfish Pasta. Have you been to Morrow's? What did YOU think?
