Stella! Is Stellar & Bayona Sublime
We left The Valley of the Sun (Phoenix, AZ) and headed to a series of meeting in New Orleans. This is the city of my wife’s birth, and a place that I lived in (growing up near by on the MS Gulf Coast) for 12 years. We’ve been gone for about 30 years, but with family still in NOLA, we find ourselves there very often. Whenever we do travel back, dining is #1 one my list, and probably #2 on my wife’s list. While I know my way around the NOLA dining scene, even after all these years, I still rely on CH for updates, as I live over 1,000 miles away, and don’t get to dine in NOLA as often, as I’d like. After many threads, we decided on Stella! and a return to Bayona, as the highlights of our trip. We were on a short string, as wife was flying in from a meeting in Newport Beach, CA and I was heading out from PHX. She also had meetings and events, plus a few moments with the family, so our moments were spoken for. The following is a series of reviews of my/our dining in “The Big Easy.” I’ve chosen to do this as the lead thread, and will add the actual reviews as “replies.” This scheme has worked well for many other cities’ reviews, so folk can just choose the segment of the thread, that they care about, without having to read a 5,000 word post. Hope that anyone, who reads these, will agree on the format.
