New Orleans roundup
Alright. That's it with food pictures from New Orleans. I can tell you I've placed myself on a high fiber vegan detox diet for the time being. Not a single meal here was bad. Not one was less than good, in fact.
Restaurant August gets my strongest praise - not only would I return, I was so convinced by it that I would consider doing a John Besh visit and eating at all six of his places.
Emeril's was the biggest surprise. Everyone said it would be good, but I still assumed it would be "tourist" good. No sir, the rabbit appetizer was the best dish of the visit. I'd be back, but I think I'd hit his other places first.
Felix's Oyster Bar deserves special mention as well - a diner setting with some amazing food and good people. The blackened alligator and grilled oysters were amazing.
Mila was excellent, all the food was great, but the sweet potato rolls with pureed fava beans deserve a shout out.
I could go on, but at this rate I'd mention something at each place. If you're into food pictures, just scroll down and enjoy. Otherwise, we'll be back to posting about wine in a bit.
