"Lagniappe"

When Cajuns say lagniappe, they mean something extra given as a compliment or for good measure. It's a byword at Copeland's of New Orleans, recently opened at 3365 Piedmont Road in the Tower Place complex (across from the "Disco" Kroger and Starbuck's).

Copelands logo If you miss the sights, sounds and flavors of the Crescent City, there's a lot of old New Orleans in this new addition to Buckhead. There's also ample indoor parking and it's within easy walking distance of Piedmont Center offices and Peachtree Road hotels.
When founder Al Copeland decided to open restaurants in other cities (there are locations in Texas, Mississippi and Maryland, as well as three in metro Atlanta, he pledged to "reflect the best of New Orleans tastes in neighborhood cafes with reasonable prices in a friendly atmosphere." The Buckhead staff takes this seriously.

From the Louisiana blue crab appetizers to the catfish "Acadiana" with a creamy shrimp butter sauce and a side of "Red Hots" (red potatoes in crayfish bouillon) and steamed vegetables, each offering has delightful surprises -- a gracious lagniappe. Another specialty is Pork Ribs Pontchartrain. There also are salads, sandwiches and soups in abundance and a special kids menu. Not since Brennan's left (to be replaced gloriously by 103 West) have Atlantans had such authentic Bananas Foster, and Copeland's Original Sweet Potato Pecan Bread Pudding is a hallmark.

The handsome interior is dark and nostalgic with a cozy bar area. If "you know what it means to miss New Orleans," Copeland's indulges your nostalgia.
