New Orleans Trip Report September 2019

slvrspoon1 | Sep 10, 201908:54 AM     1

ok, 3 days with the wife... not too planned.

1. Jacques Imo's - dinner. solid solid meal alligator cheesecake, gulf fish with a sweet glazed sauce, possibly the best corn muffins + sweet potato i've had.

2. Afatchalya - brunch. duck confit and a pastrami sandwich. mediocre / slightly boring. drinks good, nice bloody bar.

3. Meril's - dinner. suprisingly good, loud, full of bachelorettes. yellowtail lettuce appetizer stellar. don't go for their wines under $50.

4. CP's - brunch. solid as always quail for the 5th time in 3 years, chicken gumbo soup, shrimp app. deserts were weak (maybe bad choices - pecan pie + apple pie). drinks solid.

5. Cure - hotel cocktail bar Freret st area. excellent.

6. Velvet Cafe - lunch. wayyyyy out down in Buras - solid fresh Refish.

5. Bachannal - dinner. cheese plate and whole fish. solid, not outstanding.
