Since opening in June 2015, Chef Nina Compton’s beloved New Orleans restaurant in the Old No. 77 Hotel – Compère Lapin – has received critical acclaim, including Eater National’s “Best Restaurants in America;” Food & Wine’s “40 Most Important Restaurants of the Past 40 Years;” a rave review in The New York Times; Esquire’s “40 Most Important Restaurants of the Decade;” and many others.
When Compton’s flagship restaurant reopened post-pandemic, the restaurant opened with limited hours and dinner only.
Now, Compton and partner, Larry Miller, are thrilled to announce the return of Sunday Brunch.
Beginning June 4th, locals and visitors can enjoy Compton’s Caribbean-meets-Louisiana cuisine from 10:30 AM – 2 PM every Sunday.
Starters include Tater Tots with crème fraiche and caviar; Everything Bagel with tuna tartar and chili cream cheese; and the famed CL Buttermilk Biscuits with jam and whipped ricotta.
Main plates include the return of Chef’s Hot Fire Chicken – a dish that was only available during lunch and brunch – served with biscuits and slaw; Braised Pork with polenta, confit tomatoes, and sunny egg; Smothered Rabbit with biscuit croquette; and French Toast with rum caramel, pecans and mint.
Guests can end on a sweet note with Buttermilk Pie with strawberry compote; Chia Pudding with coconut and berries; and Zeppole (Italian fried dough similar to beignet) with pecans and rum caramel.
The first New Orleans restaurant to receive the prestigious “Best American Hotel Bar” Spirited Award by the Tales of The Cocktail Foundation, Compère Lapin’s cocktail program is as inventive as the cuisine. Boozy brunch offerings include In the Valley Below – Cimmaron tequila, coffee-infused mezcal, Campari, cherry and cacao; Last Stag – Union Mezcal, German amaro, Luxardo maraschino, and lime; House of Zanzibar – Black Strap Rum, Creme de Banane, Angostura, orgeat and bitters; and more. A Bottomless Brunch Punch is also on offer for $20.
