The simple things -- a long bowl of sliced bananas and heavy cream dusted with brown sugar, eggs Benedict done Creole-style, a Cajun breakfast of red-bean-and-ham hash -- prove that Lucile's knows how to do comfort food right. For more than 25 years, the kitchen has made everything from its own hot sauce to apple butter, pepper-spiked sausage gravy, Creole seasoning (which the house also sells) and a proprietary blend of house coffee; the biscuits alone are reason to beatify the chef. In all, Lucile's serves up the best New Orleans breakfasts this side of the bayou.

    Let's agree from the start that no new incarnation of Lucile's will ever compare with the first at 2124 14th Street in Boulder. The original has a kind of magic, a musty, irregular charm that can only be earned, never bought. That s...
