I am on the road back to New Orleans for a very brief stay with an obscenely aggressive dining schedule! I am absolutely fired up!! First on my list is Cochon Butcher, then Mandina’s, Parasol’s, Cassamento’s (my third attempt, always closed for one reason or another when I get there), and even if I have to use the Vomatorium, I will make sure that I get an order of Drago’s Charbroiled Oysters before I go. I also have a few other culinary attractions that I aim to make it to on my short trip, more to come. I’m arriving on March 08, with an empty stomach as well as an emtpy digital camera card, and I’m leaving March 10 in the evening with both full to the gills. I really can’t wait. Here are some of my favorite pics from my last two trips, culinary and non.
Lafayette Cemetery, across the wall from Commander’s Palace.
Blue Dog window shopping with reflection of Royal Street and St. Ann.
Statue of Andrew Jackson with St. Louis Cathedral in the background.
Central Grocery Muffuletta on the banks of the Mississippi.
The Central Grocery Muffuletta after a bit of air travel. I felt the same way, a little battered, but still good to go.
…and the best damned Pecan Pie!
Ferdi Special at Mother’s.
Slave Quarters Evergreen Plantation. An eye opening and haunting experience, not in the “this place is haunted” sense, but the “this is how our country was built, and it should be haunted” sense. Pictures do not do this place justice.
The battered Dixie Brewery. I never posted on this, it was too damned depressing. I will post a few now.
Who was the biggest Vandal? Katrina or THE vandals?
Napoleon House, love this place.
I imagine I would disappoint just a few if I didn’t mention these!
Much more to come!!! See you soon New Orleans!
