    Haha, that's crazy. The thought of the "monoculture" that's running rampant in the rest of the country affecting NOLA, however, could break my heart.

      After reading the article early this a.m., I couldn't help but keep checking the clock, waiting for Parkway to open. The place was packed, even at 11:15, and the roast beef po-boy--fantastic, as ever. I have plenty of faith in NOLA's preservation efforts where our signature sandwich is concerned.

      There is a reason that, a few years ago, Gourmet Magazine dubbed the po-boy the "best sandwich in America."

        But look what happened to Gourmet magazine....eat it or lose it, I say. Do your part by patronizing a neighborhood, non-chain poboy shop.

          I did my part today by getting four poboys from Nola Gro.

            I don't think the po-boy is going the way of Gourmet anytime soon!
            Don't worry; I never patronize chain sandwich shops of anykind. (But for worries about my waistline, I'd be at Parkway or Johnny's almost every day.)
