The Denver version of the venerable Lucile's is beautiful, just rough enough around the edges to have the feel of authenticity and a decidedly homey vibe. The lovely long porch and patio make the place look like it was lifted right up from some Southern latitude and dropped whole on a busy street in Denver. There's also a cozy lounge off to the side of the dining room where you can sip a Bloody Mary while you wait for a table (and you will wait) and a great Louisiana breakfast.
Super Bowl Sunday is this weekend, which means everyone will be turning their attention to New Orleans, where the annual championship game will be played. If you weren't able to make it to the Big Eas... More »
There are two things they do real well in New Orleans: drink and eat. New York might be a great town for chefs; San Francisco might be a Garden of Eden for foodies. But New Orleans is a town made for eaters — men and women for whom dinner isn't... More »
I've never been a huge fan of New Orleans, not even now that it's the socially progressive thing to be. And while I've been intrigued by stories of Mardi Gras, including an account from an old girlfriend who swore that as she left her hotel lobby... More »
I was in New Orleans a couple of years ago for Jazzfest. On that trip, beer with breakfast was not only acceptable, but encouraged. One day while we were walking, cocktails in hand, along the packed sidewalks of the French Quarter, we happened... More »
Whenever I eat at Lucile's (see review, page 48), I always order more than I can possibly eat. Order more than two of me could eat, in fact, loading the table to the breaking point and then stuffing myself until I can't see straight. It's a... More »
Lucile's has the best breakfast in Denver, hands down (in my humble opinion). Fresh jellies and homemade spicy ketchup at every table, a ridiculous breakfast and lunch menu full of top-quality ingredients & my love of Southern cooking locked it into my favorites. I've yet to have anything from their menu that was less than great in almost ten years of going to both the Boulder & Denver locations. Nothing's perfect though, and I gotta admit I have two problems with Lucile's. First, it's a little too popular. And while the food is delicious and definitely worth the wait, you gotta plan on killing a half hour before you're seated most weekends. And second, they close after lunch (unless their hours have changed and the world recently became a better place...LOL...I can only imagine how great dinner there could be). Regardless, I highly recommend you check out Lucile's for breakfast sometime, it's one of the best restaurants in town.
In New Orleans, people might say that eggs Sardou is just as traditional as any white-bread, ham-and-holly eggs Benedict. But here in Denver, this Gulf prawn-and-spinach version is an exotic, rule-breaking freak Benny -- and the best thing on Lucile's menu full of very good things. As such, it stands as incontrovertible proof that any classic recipe ever touched by a Cajun or Creole chef is only made better by their restrained fussing and murderous application of heavy cream, butter,...

Thank God for Fletcher Richards, who, in his wisdom, decided that what the world really needed was another outlet of Lucile's, his insanely popular Boulder breakfast joint. And thank God twice that he decided to open it in Denver. The space he picked is perfect, with lots of floor space, an upstairs lounge, a next-door waiting area and a second-floor balcony that makes the place look like it was lifted right out of the Big Easy and dropped down on Logan Street. The food is all... More »
