french quarter fest
Heading to New Orleans for French Quarter Fest! My husband and I are frequent visitors, but never during any sort of festival.
What are some of the must eat's? I'm afraid I'll be overwhelmed with all the choices! Good problem to have :)
What are the details on the largest jazz brunch? I saw something mentioned, but I don't know what it entails.
We are visiting too at that time (my husband and I are past and future NOLA residents ). I just printed the food list and highlighted a few things that I plan to seek out:
Praline Connection - fried chicken livers with jalapeno jelly (an old favorite)
K Paul's - Butterbeans and rice; chicken grillades with cheese grits
Café Reconcile - white beans with shrimp
WWOZ mango freeze (a must have)
Royal House - chargrilled oysters
Lakeview Harbor - crawfish bread
Stuff I've liked in the past:
Boucherie: roast beef poboy
Praline Connection: grilled chicken livers
Tujagues: brisket with horseradish
Benachin: jerk chicken
Love at First Bite (Walker's): cochon de lait poboy
Haven't tried at the festival, but I'd think anything from Three Muses should be good. Also, if the duck poboy from Jacques-Imo's, is anything like the one served at Crabby Jack's (Jacques-Imo's downmarket and far superior sister establishment), it is well worth having.
