We got to spend exactly two kid-free days in New Orleans in November 2019. We’d been a couple times but not in years and years and never not in the summer, when we’re absolute wimps about the heat down there and don’t enjoy our time as much as we should. Not this time. This time, we tried to pack in everything we could in two days and my liver might be mad at me for a while but wow, that was fun. This is what we did.
Headed to the快乐的栏一晚午餐。这里面的酒店彼得和保罗, which was, funny enough, the hotel I’d read about (it’s a converted monastery) that piqued my interest in planning a trip. It was booked months out for the days I wanted, but it’s a also bit far from the Quarter, so we were happy enough to visit but not stay. The bar is on the ground floor of the rectory and spills out over a few stunning rooms. We ordered the smashed cucumbers and chilis, grilled okra and crispy eggplant, and fried brussels sprouts plus two spritzes and later, two tonics from their great menu.
Breakfast at莫莉的崛起和服务，一个有趣的，友好的，灯火通明的地方，你绝对不应该错过。I got the Grand Slam McMuffin (with “fromage Americain”) and Alex got the “3 items and 2 eggs aka ‘a plate of just the stuff you want'” including a side of some of the best collard greens we’d ever eaten, anywhere.
Did you know that longtime food blogger and three-time cookbook author乔伊·威尔逊lives in New Orleans and teaches cooking classes? Now you do! I invited myself over toJoy The Baker’s Bakehouseand it’s a sunny, wonderful spot.
A stroll along Governor Nicholls Street, which Joy told me was one of her favorite streets in the Quarter.
你会最终不远处Cafe Du Monde，1862年的咖啡馆是著名整整两件事情，总是新鲜的熟食beignets（简单yeasted的糖粉仍在某种程度上不是过于甜美，它的魔法云下甜甜圈）和菊苣咖啡，很新奥尔良的事情。你应该得到两个。该行始终只要你会觉得很长，但从来没有拿。我们带着我们去和他们吃了沿水。
Later, we got aperitifs (okay, gin drinks) and oysters atPÊCHE海鲜烧烤。Their seafood platters are famous and it’s a really lovely spot, but when you only have 48 hours in New Orleans, you have to keep moving.
We went to安斯科琼因为我们听说了很多关于他们的烤牡蛎，但他们并没有让他们的那一天。取而代之的是，我们得到了大蒜酱虾的锅（一个主题，也许），这是在移动之前太棒了。
A classic New Orleans experience, we had jazz brunch atCommander’s Palace。It’s heavy and you’ll need a nap after, but you shouldn’t miss it, and if you must, at least go for the 25-cent martinis with lunch. I’ll let you pick. Note: Jackets are required for men after 5pm and all day Sunday.
It’s not a far walk, but a very pretty one, to大堤面包店，这自然发酵面包和焙烤产品的在通风空间的分类。从早午餐太满尝试别的，我们得到了橄榄油蛋糕，第二天早上去为孩子们的早餐。
Central Grocery & Deliis famous for their perfect muffuletta sandwiches, which were invented there but became a New Orleans staple. We brought a full one to split on the plane but had enough leftover for some very lucky lunchboxes the next day.
A few places we might have gone to if we had more time:我自己保持清醒，当我因没有取得到每一个我们没能到位使这些列表。但！Turkey and the Wolf, Thalia, Coquette, Bywater American Bistro, and The Roof Bar at the Catahoula Hotel (for views) were near the top of our list, had we more time, and we’d definitely like more time for jazz on Frenchman Street next time — Upstairs at The Blue Nile, The Spotted Cat, and The Apple Barrel all came recommended.
