Po-boy Article in NYT

  1. 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.

    1. 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 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.)

        2. I shared that article today on my Facebook page, now everybody is wanting real poboys!
