Praline Connection Tips (2)

The Praline Connection: A Very Good Local Creole Restaurant

I stepped into the Praline Connection while exploring the Faubourg district of New Orleans. I checked out the menu outside and thought the prices were just right for my pocket book. The restaurant is considered to be a decent place for local comfort food and soul food. Reviews I have read about since visiting have been rather mixed but I found the meat loaf filling and good. I enjoyed the desert too. After leaving I felt pretty fat. The wait staff wear black hats for some special quirk.

Favorite Dish I had the meatloaf and was very satisfied

Praline Connection: Soul Food

The Creole soul food at the Praline Connection is guaranteed to make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. It's not exactly like being loved, but close -- like childhood memories of hugs and Mama's good cooking. Plus, the waiters are the sharpest dressers in town!

Favorite Dish I had the lima beans and rice (yes, I was one of those weird kids who always loved lima beans), with side dishes of cornbread and collard greens. It was very satisfying.

Other items on the menu are filé gumbo, jambalaya, meat loaf, and stewed chicken. If you can't make up your mind, have the Taste of Soul Platter, with a little of everything: gumbo, red beans & rice, jambalaya, fried chicken, catfish, greens, and bread pudding.
