Eating New Orleans

Let’s immediately get down to brass tacks. One of the objectives of my New Orleans vacation was to eat everything that was in front of me. Here is a taste of what I consumed. My adventure to find food that I have never had began with my eating muff…

Muffaletta, that is. A delicious bowl of French onion soup kicked it all off; it was probably the best French onion soup that I’ve had in my life.

Candace and I returned to Cafe Maspero later in our trip, but for lunch:

{NOTE: I forgot to mention the Camellia Grill in the previous post about hospitality. I have never had such an uplifing experience at a diner venue. Marvin, our host and waiter, as the rest of the staff followed the same suit in welcoming aspects, could not have been any more incredible. His gregarious style of hospitality could not have been matched, and his energy rubbed off on me, enlightening my spirit to give me a bigger personality pep talk than coffee’s caffeine ever could. The world would be a better place if all restaurants had staff like this.)

{NOTE: Coop’s Place affected me the same as Carmellia Grill with hospitality. There was a similar energy, but the staff was colder, dry, and sarcastic. Some customers, who were told (not asked) to wait outside (a few times and the last time was a shout) took offence, but we put their minds at ease. It was a fun experience, and the food was absolutely delicious.}
