If the name doesn't catch your attention, the food at Sazerac surely will. Located next to Hotel Monaco at 11101 Fourth Ave., Sazerac boasts interesting, varied menus for breakfast, lunch and dinner, including brunch, late night dining and gluten-free options.
Try the rustic pain perdu for breakfast, their version of French toast, with spiced pecans and banana foster with a side of grapefruit, dusted with brown sugar. If you're still hungry, try a side of sliced vine ripe tomatoes with sea salt and basil or home fries to satisfy your hunger.
Their dinner menu includes items like deviled eggs with smoked ham and jalapenos, roasted organic beets with goat cheese and pistachios and unique wood fired pizzas. Their various small and big plates are perfect for a variety of preferences and appetites. The pan seared scallops with Creole clams and chorizo are particularly savory and offered in a small or large portion.
Happy hour at Sazerac is the best time to visit because most of their regular menu items are available at a reduced price between the hours of 4-8 p.m., Monday through Saturday. Not only is their happy hour four hours long, but the discounts and portion sizes are substantial. Appetizers like nuts and olives start at $4, but diners can also enjoy items like little cheese burgers for $5 or a wood-fired Florentine pizza for $8. Drink specials are abundant, with house wine and beer starting at $4.
Save room for a piece of ooey gooey chocolate cake, topped with your choice of pouring cream or ice cream, to complete your Sazerac dining experience.
