Located on Magazine Street, the facade features white branches wrapped in white lights and a flock of black crows for the Halloween season.
The website states:
There are plenty of places to get Cajun Food, Mexican Food, Seafood, but is there a place to get just a regular American Meal? New Orleans is all about 'being different' but how many of the restaurants you eat at, serve the same thing as the last one? The Standard is unlike any other restaurant in town, in the sense that is offers you regular food that you would find at any neighborhood restaurant-- except one in New Orleans. Of course there is a cajun spice to it, but there is literally something for everyone at The Standard.
The interior is quaint and welcoming. J & I sat in one of the front windows. It is a great place for people watching, and you'll see all types walking Magazine Street.
J & I started with delicious Bloody Marys.
For brunch, Jeff chose the buttermilk fried chicken,
pounded and marinated boneless chicken breast over smashed potatoes, with black pepper gravy.
I chose the shrimp & grits, sautéed shrimp with creamy jalapeño cheese sauce over grits.
J & I both left full and happy. We are adding The Standard to our brunch list of geaux tos. We recommend you visit this New Orleans staple when you are along Magazine Street. You will be glad you did.
