Breakfast. It's the most important meal of the day, and apparently all the rage when it comes to New Orleans' newest dining trends. This week both of the city's leading food critics Brett Anderson and Ian McNulty report on the rising hotness level of Big Easy breakfast joints, places that branch out beyond just the ubiquitous home fries and rye toast served with jelly packets. Anderson notes that, locally, " there are more new cafes specializing in breakfast than at any time in recent memory," and McNulty reports that "Banks Street has quietly emerged as a minihub of breakfast." Better start getting up earlier, y'all, because it's time to partake in the breakfast renaissance. Here now are the new breakfast joints that have the critics talking, mapped.
