I tried sweet potato pecan pie for the first time this weekend at Rita's (near Ursuline and Chartres). Unbelievable! No question the best pie I ever had! It was like sweet potato pie on the bottom with pecan pie on the top. I don't know if it's as good other places, but it is worth a trip to New Orleans for this pie alone! I was trying to figure out how to bring a whole one home in my carry on.
