After the change of ownership and menu of the Elite Cafe, I was a little skeptical about returning to try again. However, to my surprise the Cafe had changed, but for the better. The food was lighter and not so overwhelming, yet it still had that great New Orleans flavor. The service was wonderful from the moment we entered the door until the time we left. We never felt overlooked. I will admit that it is on the higher end as far as Value, but the price was worth it and the environment was fantastic. I'd definitely suggest the booths for dinner or even the antique bar for a nice afternoon brunch. And the best thing about it all is that the new elite takes reservations where the old elite did not, so there is no need to worry about waiting outside anymore. : )

I wandered into Elite Cafe knowing nothing about the restaurant, and left completely satisfied with my experience there. The hostess that greeted us was so polite and accomodating. She made sure we had a spot near the bar to have a drink while we waited for our table, had excellent wine recommendations, and sat us quickly. Our server was friendly as well, and the owner/manager of the restaurant came to the table to personally serve our wine and make additional recommendations on the food. The biscuits and untraditional shrimp were delicious, as was the smoked chicked, and rhubarb crisp. Suggestion: If you can, sit in a booth - they are very private and romantic. Also, make sure you go to the restaurant hungry! The food is so delicious and you want to have plenty of room to try a little of everything. The only drawback is that dinner can be pretty expensive, so save Elite Cafe for a date or special occasion. I will definitely go back!
