Barbecue baked potatoes and a meat market?

frenchprof Jun 12, 2007 09:10 PM

Is the concessions stand at the Superdome that used to serve killer barbecue topped baked potatoes still there? Can someone tell me the name?
On another topic, what are some thoughts on a good meat market/butcher in New Orleans? I'm moving to the city this summer and, like any good chowhound, am getting my shopping lists together : find a meat market and a seafood market (although I like the parking lot over the bridge... I know that is vague, but I'm not sure of the exact name).
Thanks in advance!

    Whole Foods here always has beautiful meat; assume it's the same in NO. Mine does this gorgeous stuffed and rolled beef (don't know quite what to call it ...) that almost doubles as art. They've got venison, rabbit, nitrite-free bacon, natural/organic chicken and beef. My strategy is always to find a really fabulous grocery store & buy most everything there. What can I say, I'm lazy--would rather spend the time cooking than shopping ;)

      Lagenstein's (uptown & Metairie Rd) is a local grocer with quality meats, and it handles special requests well. Dorignac's (on Vets in Metairie) also has a full-service meat counter, with a large selection of veal. It carries goose at the holidays and will pretty much get whatever you ask for, or trim/cut/tie/french/debone, etc.

      Here is how I shop these days: Meat at Dorignac's on Vets, Grains/Bulk @ Whole Foods, Produce at the Crescent City Farmers Markets or roadside when available and Seafood @ Langensteins

      I have had bad seafood and meat at wholefoods...I will never buy anything fresh there again-

        terranova's on esplanade near the fairgrounds had a great little meat counter before the storm, I am not sure about after. I do know that they are open. dorignac's on veterans has good meat and seafood. It is a full scale grocery. a real throwback.

          Terranova's is full open, and we have been buying meat there for over a year....

          As a Jersey ex-pat, I can testify to their sausage, which we always buy....

          Fresh head-on shrimp in Bucktown. Also crabs and crawfish. Oysters.
