We all got into New Orleans in the late afternoon and found our way to the house we’d rented only to discover that a house in the Arabi is about as far from the French Quarter/heart of NOLA as you can get and still be within the boundaries of the city. By the time we’d settled in, walked around the neighborhood looking for a grocery store (nope) or convenience store (nope) and caught a taxi into the Marigny, it was 10pm. At 10pm after traveling all day, you don’t choose a dinner place so much as walk into the first place that’s open and still serving food.
I’d call this visit a happy accident rather than a focused attempt at finding a quality dinner location.
That said, I’d go back and choose this place for dinner because it’s a tiny place with live music and outstanding food. What more do you want for your first night in New Orleans?
This picture is at least 75% less impressive than the food tasted
That’s beet and spinach bruschetta, mac and cheese, and the remains of what I think was sweet potato gnocchi.
The mac and cheese was so good, we ordered it twice
We also tried the lamb sliders (good) and the feta fries, which were also great so we ordered those twice too.
Traveling makes us hungry.
We finished with ice cream made in house
Don’t ask me the flavors… something sweet and creamy, I’m guessing…
Long travel day, a rental house far away from everything, great food and music found by accident and terrible pictures taken as an afterthought.
Hey, welcome to vacation!
