Take Out For New Years Eve
Renting a house in the Garden District during the holidays at the last minute and missed out on New Years Eve reservations, so thought we'd pick up some seafood and cook for ourselves. So the question is... where can you find some good takeout to fill in the meal? Was looking for gumbo, red beans and rice, dirty rice, decent bread, etc. Have a car, know the local transportation and willing to drive to the suburbs for something special. Thanks in advance.
I really like Sammy's Deli on Elysian Fields, but they close at 5pm on usual days. Maybe call ahead to see if they are open. They have some great daily specials as well.
St. Charles Tavern is open 24/7 and they have gumbo. They also deliver. They have a big menu but they probably don't have everything you want. You can ask though. Joey K's has gumbo and red beans and rice for take out.
St. Charles Tavern @ 1433 Saint Charles Avenue, New Orleans, LA 504 - 523 - 9823.
Joey K's Restaurant @ 3001 Magazine St., New Orleans, LA 504 - 891 - 0997.
I've never asked about take-out but Cafe Reconcile has good versions of what you want. Since they also cater I would guess they could do take out. If you have a larger group the web site shows the size/cost of their catered dishes
