On a Friday evening back in January, the homies and I had a great dinner at a New Orleans themed restaurant called Preux & Proper. **An aside for my New Oleans peeps, after living in your city for a year back in 2012, I know how defensive you get in regards to your culture. By no means am I saying Preux & Proper is 100% accurate in it’s depiction of said culture… So relax 🙂
Back to the story. This past weekend I went back for brunch and decided to give the chicken and waffles a try. I could have used more seasoning on the chicken but it wasn’t bland, it was good overall. The buttermilk cornbread waffle is what stood out to me, it was as if a waffle and Jiffy cornbread had a love child. It’s topped with roasted pecans, melted butter and warm syrup, sooooo bomb!
I don’t remember the name of the cocktail I had, but I know there was bourbon, lime juice, and ginger beer involved. I don’t remember the rest of the ingredients, all I know is it was hella good and if you’re the bourbon type like myself, you’d love it!
For dessert we went with the cinnamon toast crunch beignets which were super sweet and full of flavor. I admit, I prefer their dinner menu because there’s more options, but if you’re ever in Downtown LA and have a craving for some cajun cuisine, give Preux & Proper a look. Downstairs gives more of the social scene vibes, complete with table top games, music, a bar as well as countless options from the daquiri machines. Upstairs is laid back and intimate, making it the perfect location for a great date night.
Ya’ll go vote and keep living!
