I liked everything about this restaurant. They make a perfect manhattan and the Braised beef brisket was wonderful!

A San Francisco establishment, that years ago, authenticated the New Orleans culinary delights
and reminded us of the joys of eating down-home style at Café do Monde, Felix's, Antoine's, is tired.
Devil eggs, six halves ($6.00), tasty with a classic mayonnaise based creamy filling. Cajun fries, ($5.00), chili peppered, crisp, worth eating. Kale salad, ($11.00), fresh seemingly slightly cooked, chilled and served with herbs. Good!......Hush puppies, ($9.00), corn meal, shell fish, over- cooked and oily. Gumbo, ($24.50), mushy, seemed like it stayed dormant in a pot for a brief vacation. The stew was like a weak tasteless soup. Jambalaya, ($25.00), similar to the Gumbo, mushy rice, standing around a pot waiting to be served. The Beignet, 2 for $7.50 lacked the light freshness that a du Monde sample should be and served as a heavy overcooked cupcake with a dollop of ice cream.. The food needs to be fresher, the service lacks education and this place is tired. Management should be made aware. Good bar, nice surroundings, good lower Pacific Heights location. We were disappointed. Returning to the Elite would be difficult.

I went to Elite Cafe with my coworkers. The cafe is very quaint and would be a good place to take a first date with the small booths. Overall the food ranged from great to only okay. The oysters and biscuits were amazing. The dino kale salad was a huge portion, but was also pretty good. The dried fruit and cheese paired quite well with the perfectly sliced kale. The downside to the meal with the entree. I was excited to try the gumbo only to find it so hot in temperature, that I was not able to enjoy it. By the time my coworkers were done with their entrees it was still too hot to eat.

The place is happening on most nights and weekend brunch.
Some New Orleans classics with a California twist.
Really yummy deviled eggs, but they need work in the Sazerac department.
