This Creole restaurant named for the lily flower of New Orleans resides in the former Negro League Cafe Bronzeville. The space has been transformed with oak floors, warm bronze tones and New Orleans-inspired murals on the dining room wall as well as the outside of the building. Co-owners Allen Rochelle (raised in New Orleans) and Anthony Beckham (a native Chicagoan) met while working at Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. at Navy Pier and decided to open a restaurant together in honor of Rochelle's late father. On the menu, you'll find classics such as jambalaya, etouffee, shrimp and andouille sausage po' boys and spicy Creole butter shrimp served on rice. Desserts -- beignets, bananas Foster -- are similarly traditional. Reservations are accepted only for the Sunday brunch buffet accompanied by tunes from a jazz quintet, a la Bourbon Street.
