This beautiful original Art Deco building began as the Lincoln Grill in 1928, and in 1981, The Elite Cafe was launched. Since its inception, The Elite has served exquisite food with the flavors of New Orleans. Their current menu continues this tradition with an emphasis on seasonality, the freshest local ingredients, and a lighter touch in our preparation. From the original mahogany booths to the beautiful full bar to the unsurpassed people watching on the Upper Fillmore, The Elite Cafe has something for everyone.
The Elite now offers outdoor seating for brunch, cocktails, and dinner.
