Muffaletta and Creole

wondering where I could find muffaletta and other norlans creole stuff. I'm not in it for the atmosphere, but it's gotta be authentic.

  1. Speaking as a New Orleans' native, nothing is as good up here as it is back home. You won't find a muffaletta up here as the bread is different, much like a poboy can not be duplicated up here beacuse the bread is the key. Let me dig up my olive salad recipe, which I found on here. I made my own muffs for the Saints/Vikings playoff game and they came out quite good.
    And please, New Orleans not norlans. lol

      just read about this new place Cheeky in LES:

      the intermittently open place ships their bread up from NOLA for their po'boys; I'm sure it suffers from the ride but . . . . not bad right?

        I may have to check it out, but with no set hours it could be hard. And my poboy of choice by which I measure all establishments that serve poboys, is the roast beef poboy, which they don't serve. I might venture there to buy bread to make my own.

    2. I know it gets mixed reviews, but I happen to really like Mara's Homemade for southern creole type food. There really aren't many authentic New Orleans kind of places in NYC.

      1. Mara's Homemade on 6th St just West of 1St Ave
