New Orleans to Go Food Truck Does Eden Park Brunch


Would shrimp and grits get you out and about on a Sunday morning? How about pecan waffles? These are just a couple of the offerings you may find when the New Orleans to Go food truck begins serving Sunday brunch in Eden Park July 3rd. They’re talking about glazed wings to go with those waffles, creole bread pudding with rum sauce, catfish sliders, crawfish and shrimp etoufee stuffed bell peppers, Randy’s sweet cornbread (mmmm), and more, on a rotating basis.

Surprises and responding to customer requests are always just around the bend with these folks, so who knows what other delicious fare will make it onto their Eden Park menu. Look for them next Sunday at the overlook up the hill from Krohn Conservatory (toward the Edgecliff), starting around 11:00 a.m. and ready to feed the after-church crowd. If all goes well with this roll-out, they may extend their Sunday hours and move closer to Seasongood Pavilion later in the day on Sundays.

Eden Park is one of Cincy’s gems, so keep up with what New Orleans to Go is doing there via facebook or twitter and treat yourself to a fine Ohio River view, a visit to the Krohn Conservatory or the Cincinnati Art Museum, or just sprawl on a picnic blanket near Mirror Lake and do some people-watching with some tasty eats, and enjoy a summer Sunday!

Update: Looks like the hours for this Sunday's brunch are now 10:00-3:00.

Get me out and about on a Sunday morning? Sure. One of my primary motivators in life is the promise of good food. How is the shrimp and grits? Those shrimp look a wee bit skimpy.

You need to fast on Saturday to ensure adequate space for a big Sunday indulgence! Can't wait for the report.

Thanks all for stopping by! Shrimp n Gritz posts do seem to elicit comments :)

Moi, I've loved NOTG's shrimp & grits every time I've had it, although each time is a little different. There were boatloads of shrimp in the dish I photographed at the top of this post, but most of them were were lying underneath the cheesy top I didn't want to disturb until I snapped my pic and was ready to dive in.

Cati, I hope you do check them out (and you could probably work in a run around the reservoir:). P.S. I'm fascinated by the new cookie recipe you posted about - I've had chocolate with chili before - but add peanut butter too? Mmmmm.
