new orleans – a tale of gluttony.

10 AM: We begin the day in true New Orleans fashion – late and covered in powder sugar from beignets at Cafe Du Monde.

1 PM: Bistro style lunch of gulf coast oysters and buttered bun burger at Lüke.

Afternoon walking through the French Quarter to work up an appetite, perusing alley way book stores and vodoo street art.

8 PM: Dinner at homey, James Beard-winning Cochon.

fried green tomatoes + shrimp remoulade and fried alligator

oyster po boy (Cochon serves their rendition on buttered white bread)

Pimm’s Cup and Sazerac at New Orleans oldest bar, Napolean House…and to-go cups for those who just want a road soda

  3. I just did a similar trip over the holidays! We did nothing but eat. Cochon was amazing, next time you go, grab a cab and head to Dante’s uptown. It’s similar to Cochon, but was one of my absolute favorites. Looks yummy!

  4. I love the shrimp remoulade, yummy!
    like your pics. cool blog.
