We took 3 kids to NOLA and they were very accomodating. My wife loved the food I thought it was ok. We ate Muffalettas at Cafe M(something) on Decatur and I have come to the conclusion that NO does not have a Health Dept(the Muff's were good though).
We ate supper at The Gumbo Shop (very nice waiter) the food was ok. Breakfast at Cafe Begneit (sp?) was terrible. The coffee was absolutely awfull.
The trip to NO was not for a culinary experience, but as a stop on our way to and from Destin, FL.
