Any time you go to a new place, you should try new food. And the best of the best is found throughout New Orleans. There are mainline places, hole in the wall, food carts, and hidden gems. The typical answer you get when you ask friends of where to eat when you go there is, “You’ll find something good anywhere.” This is especially true if you like seafood and/or spicy food. Also, there is a wonderful thing called a “Po-boy” – you should try many different kinds, they are all amazing.
The first day there a group hit a slightly hidden place: Cajun Seafood. You have to love a place that’s hidden under a highway and has something like this for dirt cheap.
A great place I found for breakfast was right on the side of Jackson Square: Cafe Pontalba.
The day after the wedding I went to, I had to nurse myself back to walking health, so I stopped in at The Old Coffee Pot, which might have had the best Hurricane I had down there (IMHO).
This segues right into the booze, as it is a heavy drinking town, and there are so many different things to try.
***A couple of milestones this week: We passed 1000 views! I also opened on online shop (the link can be found in the newly formed About tab at the top of this page).
Next week: We will wrap up the New Orleans albums with a look at the city at night.
