In honor of the upcoming IFBC, I’m retracing our steps through NOLA in 2009, and the delicious meals we shared with our dear foodie friends Johnnie and Melinda.
We started the journey to JazzFest at Bourbon House, indulging in generously sized gulf oysters and Abita Beer.
A short walk from our rental in the Warehouse District, we dined al fresco at Herbsaint and shared lots of laughs. The decor was just as delightful as the food.
Our Friday food crawl continued with l’escargot at Pelican Club, in an alley graced with my favorite NOLA artist, Michalopoulos.
…and a memorable bar-side meal at NOLA, where I indulged in two of my favorite things: champagne and macaroni & cheese. Emeril now shares a special place in my stomach.
