  1. I'm not sure what you consider to be soul food, but Verti Mart at the corner of Royal and Gov. Nicholls does a great job with down-home takeout food. Very popular with the locals.

    1. The Praline Connection in the Marigny on the corner of Frenchmen and another street. About 2 blocks down Frenchmen from Esplanade. Kind of famous for their soul food.

        We just returned from New Orleans Saturday, Pracline connection was they best we have ever had. My Dad is 75 and swore it was the best he had ever had and he was raised in the south.

        Can anyone tell me where we can get the recipe?

        I called the restaurant and of course they won't give it out. They did tell me they use clear fry oil, season and flour it.

        I have checked

        By the way, I'm new to this site, can anyone tell me how to start a posting?

        Thanking you in advance...

        1. re: edible complex

          I like Lil Dizzy's and Creole Skillet. Lil Dizzy's IMO would be the perfect place for soul food, other than Dooky Chase.

        2. Willie Mae's Scotch House, Lil Dizzy's and Two Sisters would be my picks, though I like the Praline Connection alot.

          1. I second Lil Dizzy's and Two Sisters.
