An Uptown restaurant might want to prepare for an influx of customers after Drew Brees gave it the ultimate stamp of approval: his favorite place to eat in New Orleans.
The Saints quarterback told TMZ Sports that Ye Olde College Inn at 3000 S. Carrollton Ave. is the best place to eat in the city.
When asked for recommendations, Brees said, “take your pick,” and then touted the chicken fried steak po-boy.
Earlier this week, Brees visited a different restaurant: Walk-On’s Bistreaux & Bar in Shreveport, one of four locations he co-owns with his wife, KSLA reported.
Brees signed autographs for fans and took questions from the media, but the most special moment came when he surprised Hunter Glass, bringing the 10-year-old to tears of joy.
Brees signed an autograph for Hunter, who has cerebral palsy, and told him that he was a special kid, KSLA reported.
It was Hunter’s wish to meet the Saints star, and the Pay It Forward Networking organization helped to make it possible.
