Fried pickles


SF hound heading to NO in a couple days. We are heading to CP, August, Cochone, Mondo, and a couple others. But I have a craving for fried pickles, preferably chips. It's not a common bay area treat. Any yummy ones to be found with you?

    1. As a fellow Californian (but frequent visitor to New Orleans) I am not an expert by any means on ALL the Fried Pickle Chips down there, but the ones I had at Liuzza's were truly unforgettable.

        Hey Bob, heading to NOLA this weekend (first time) and would be interested in any recs you might have.

        I'm definitely hitting up Galatoire's (old school), Johnnys (po boys), Napoleon House (muffeletta & Pimm's Cup- yeah, I read about the controversy of heating it, but also read that Central's aren't anything worth calling home about), Felix's (Oysters and gumbo), Sazerac Bar for a sazerac & ramos gin fizz, and Cafe du Monde (for beignets and chicory cafe au lait) but am open to any other suggestions. My further afield taxi journey will be to Willie Mae's for fried chicken and other black creole offerings. I keep trying to find a decent bus schedule, but everyone says to take a taxi. Will not have a car, and am staying in the French Quarter.

        Here's my original post if you feel like replying there:

          Hi Taster, sorry I just saw this shout out. I will answer your other thread as it is more germaine.

      2. There's lots! It's one of my favorite treats, and many places have good ones. Two of the best are at Tracey's bar on Magazine St. and Boo Koo BBQ inside Finn McCool's bar in Mid City. My absolute favorite is Seither's Seafood, but that's pretty far off the beaten path for most visitors.

          Thank you for all the great advice! I hope to try all of them and report back.

        2. Rivershack Tavern also has them. If you go for lunch, their chef does incredible daily specials. "Like" them on Fb to see what's cooking.

          1. Bear's in Mandeville has awesome fried pickles but again probably too far for casual visitor. their roast beef is out of this world too!
