Seven days to “Fat Tuesday”(Mardi Gras), the last day of Carnival season. An ad for “”Big Daddy’s “” New Orleans Restaurant made me think of my visit to New Orleans and its fabulous food. Of course, I needed to check it out.
We arrived to find a small parking area, with one handicapped space, directly in front of the restaurant. If it’s full, there is street parking.
A street-level, single-door entrance led to a small entryway, and another door into the restaurant itself. The second door requires a sharp right turn, but it is doable with a wheelchair.
We were greeted by an amiable who who led us to our table. The restaurant was fairly quiet on a weekday lunchtime. We were told that evening and weekends were much different. Jazz brunch on Sundays and music in the evenings soundedreat to us. After tasting our “Po-Boys,” and taking in the atmosphere, we could understand how crowded this place could get.
The restaurant is easily navigable with lots of space between tables.
The decor is very “New Orleans,” from the purple and gold color scheme, to the photos and artwork. I loved it!
We enjoyed a delicious lunch while discussing when we would be back for the music and food.
A large, single-occupancy, handicapped-accessible restroom is located towards the back of the left dining area. Single-occupancy (not handicapped-accessible) restrooms aocated in the dining area to the right of the bar. There is no baby-changing station
Big Daddy’s seems to be a fun place with great food and nice servcice. We must get back here for the Sunday jazz brunch! Check the website for special events and dining specials.
As always, we at Destination Accessible advise you to check a venue’s website, www.bigdaddysny.com, when planning a visit, to “know before you go.”
