We know this sounds crazy, but we are on a Nationwide Potato Salad Tour! We hit Boston, Washington DC, Seattle and now we are in New Orleans.

We will be for the next 3 days and would love any suggestions for the best Potato Salad in New Orleans. Esp any special cajan/creole type.

feel free to follow the AndrewAndrew Potato Salad Tour at www.andrewandrew.com

      The shrimp potato salad at DiMartino's in Gretna.

      And I also love the potato salad that is in the seafood martini appetizer at The Pelican Club.

        Verti Mart in the quarter does pretty good p.s.

          Schaeffer's seafood market in Bucktown. Has big chunks of egg whites.

            J'anita's. Well I love it and I don't normally like potato salad at all.

              I don't have any suggestions but I love what you're doing. I wish I had known when you were in the mid-atlantic because there's a cajun restaurant in Virginia of all places (!) that has a very unique potato salad.

                I like the potato salad at the Store on Gravier.

                  Thanks for the reply!

                  Do you have a name of the store? Our hotel is on Gravier!
