With reservations at 9:30 pm, we checked in with our friendly hostess and headed straight to the bar to wait for our table and to sip on cocktails.
At the bar, I had my usual Ketel One Martini (staight up, lil dirt), and Jeff had his Andy Cohen-esque Scotch and Ginger Ale. We chatted with many interesting people from across the country while sipping on our libations.

Once seated in the well-appointed dining room filled with well-dressed New Year's Eve patrons, we orderd another round of our cocktails du jour and gazed over the amazing menu selections. I just know that BFFs A & M would LOVE the menu artwork.
To start off, J ordered the chicken and andouille gumbo, and I ordered the cappucino style sweet potato, shrimp, and corn bisque. Both were excellent! (I know! I know! No food pics. As I become a better blogger, I promise more food pics. I was overserved. Get it!)
As we so often do, J and I ordered the same meal off the menu---the Redfish Ponchartrain (Pan fried on shrimp, crab, and oyster etoufee). It was simply stellar!
With no time for dessert (it was already 11:30 pm), we were off to ring in the New Year at BFF Randy's condo on Bourbon Street.
I would definitely recommend Broussard's... We will be back!
