Uptown/Prytania Street

Just had a lovely lunch and a wander uptown around Prytania. We went to St. James Cheese Company for lunch, and it was delicious! We each had a sandwich on the specials board- Tom's was called the Firecracker, a spicy pressed cheese sandwich with tomatoes and slivered almonds. I had a pork belly sandwich on ciabatta that had this lovely soft cheese (don't know which kind, but it was cows milk, and flavorful but mild.) Simple salad deliciously and judiciously dressed rounded out the meal (you can also opt for potato chips.)

Great food, great staff and service. You place your order and pay, then are given a number and then your meal is delivered to the table. We had iced tea (unsweetened) but they looked to have a wide variety of beers as well as soft drinks.

After eating (and purchasing some cheese to take home, of course) we wandered down to the Creole Creamery. I got the Creole Cream Cheese ice cream as well as the Caramel Chicory Chocolate (also, very useful to a chocoholic like myself, they have all the chocolate ice creams listed separately as well as located in their own cooler). Tom had the Black & Gold and the Bananas Foster. We couldn't finish, so we brought the rest home for later (thankfully, minimal meltage.)

Just thought I'd share!

Other recent discoveries: Crescent Pie & Sausage and Elizabeth's.
