What a terrific city! Loved it! Will surely try to get back again for a longer time. 5 days just was not enough. Of course I gained 5 lbs in 5 days, but the food is marvelous.
Went to Desire for the crawfish bisque, Cafe duMonde of course, Pat O'Brians for drinks and to listen to the piano players. We had a good dinner at the Palace Cafe. And the Clover Grill had super breakfasts and the price is certainly less than we paid at Brennans for brunch, (but that was an exquisite meal!), Central Grocery's muffaletta's are very good but Acme's po boys are better.
Preservation Hall's jazz bands are marvelous!
And NOLA's dinner was out of this world. Never got to Bayona or Peristyle, maybe the next trip.
We went to the Mardi Gras float factory in Algiers and the small floats in the parade on Sat. evening were like little wagons compared to the gorgeous floats of some of the other krewes.
Rode the Charles St. trolley to the Zoo and have to say for a small zoo it is fabulous! Even saw the elephants performing.
What a great town! Cannot wait to get back there!
