So it was our six year anniversary, and Av made these great plans for us to take the train (I loooove the train) to New Orleans. Since we were only going to stay a couple of days, the train would be perfect because we would just be walking around in the Quarter. Usually, we take the Volvo and mess around all over New Orleans – doing interesting things like going out to eat at fabulous restaurants – and then there are the things that I just *have* to do, like getting some doberge from Gambino’s in Metarie, and watching a movie at The Palace 20 – while having a daquiri. And I know this is going to sound weird, but I like to take the car to Safari Car Wash on Veterans. 🙂
We got in a little after 8pm Sunday and took a taxi to the hotel (the Ritz-Carlton, my favorite). We had been thinking about going over to Galatoire’s for supper, but were really tired for some reason, so we stayed in and ordered room service. Delish.
Food This Trip:
Muffuletta at Central Grocery – this visit, we decided to do things that were famous but we had somehow never got around to doing before. The muffuletta at Central Grocery was excellent – messy and yummy. Olive salad, mmmmm.
Oyster Po Boy at Acme Oyster House – everything, everything about this po boy was perfect. The bread. The oysters. Dressed perfect. Yum!
Roasted Duck at Dante’s Kitchen – delish. We ate outside, and the temperature was perfect. We had company and everything was just perfect, perfect!
