A November 2004 trip
to New Orleans by trod
Quote: I visit New Orleans often. While most people focus just on the French Quarter and Mardi Gras, there is much more to this great city than drinking and debauchery. There is great culture and dining that is second to none.
The highlights of our meal were the crawfish etouffee and the desserts--praline sundae and bread pudding. This is the first bread pudding I've had that I enjoyed more than our family recipe! My wife also had an excellent fresh cantaloupe daiquiri.
We waited in line about 25 minutes before being seated (we got there at 9pm), and the crowd was mostly tourists with a few locals. They don't take reservations, except for very large parties. Dinner for four, with two drinks and three desserts, came to $80. We bought a Gumbo Shop cookbook on the way out and have already tried a couple of recipes. The recipes came out great!
