Flavor: Sunday brunch is a hit at this gathering spot, featuring traditional biscuits and gravy, omelets and Eggs Benedict or breakfast with a twist like a sausage and egg quesadilla or hearty Chicken & Sausage Jambalaya. At dinnertime, the signature dish is Steak Nora, a filet with crabmeat and béarnaise, but casual choices abound. Try the chicken and goetta spring roll appetizer, Cajun fried oysters or Nora’s famous crab cakes — all featured on a late-night menu that will tide you over until after midnight.
Flair: Lots of live music and camaraderie, especially on summer nights when drinks follow dinner on the outdoor rooftop patio. A fantastic view and some of the best live Jazz around.
