|Laissez le bon temps roule

I just looked at my LJ userprofile, and I don't think that I have even half of the interests in common with my 21 year old self. I was very spooky, or wanted to appear that way at least. Very odd, my only real passions now are writing, cooking, and writing about cooking. So, I feel that I am finally indulging my past and present self. |
At long last, I have booked a trip to New Orleans.
We will arrive on Lundi Gras, and stay through Friday.
I want to eat the whole city.
For those of you who have been, could you recommend some great places for food? I would like to try everything from Haute Cuisine to street food, All cuisines, I won't discriminate. I just want to try lots of things that I have never had before!
Anything I need to see while I am there?
I love NOLA. I'll get a list together for you.
Thank you, that would be amazing!
Renaud’s Oysters and Absinthe Bar …. near Bienville Street!
Oh wait, …. I forgot.
That place burned to the ground in 1860 when freakin Louis de Pointe du Lac set that danged fire to try to destroy that other jerk-off, Lestat. The whole fookin city block went up in flames, including my favorite restaurant. Ah, the smell of absinthe being consumed in the conflagration, about broke my heart. If Louis wasn’t already damned, boy-oh-boy!
All those danged vampires have poor impulse control, I tell ya!
I haven't been back to NOLA since. They say the place went decidedly downhill after the Reconstruction anyway...
(I'd suppose one can still be a ‘dark-&-spooky’ Foodie, eh?)
