  • Food and music share the billing at the Little Gem Saloon.

The Little Gem Saloon, the combination restaurant/bar/music venue, has added a Sunday brunch service with brass bands performing each week.

The buffet-style brunch and show costs $35 (drinks are extra) and features dishes in step with chef Robert Bruce’s Creole menus at lunch and dinner. Oxtail strew, broiled fish and roasted quail are on the buffet, and you can partake in the build-your-own bloody Mary bar for $15 or bottomless sparkling wine for $12. Brunch is from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. each Sunday.

The Little Gem Saloon opened earlier this month in the CBD, returning to commerce a building that had been blighted for years despite a prominent role in early jazz history. It’s one of the few remaining structures from what had been an important hub of business and entertainment during the early 1900s as jazz was first developing in the city.

The Little Gem Saloon serves lunch and dinner daily. In addition to the new jazz brunch, it hosts a piano happy hour (4-7 p.m.) on weekdays and jazz shows Wednesday through Saturday.
