The Big Easy
I HAVE MUCH TO SHARE with you about our time in New Orleans, but I will save this story until we arrive back in Seattle so I can post lots of photos for you.
But as a teaser, we stayed in a hotel in the French Quarter, one block from Bourbon Street. We strolled the French Quarter searching for beignets and chicory coffee at Cafe Du Monde (established in 1862).
We took a riverboat tour on the rolling Mississippi for a jazz brunch.
We had dinner at the Tujague’s. It’s the second oldest restaurant in NOLA, and it the birthplace of brunch and home to the largest stand-up bar in America. Tujague’s was established in 1856. Only Antoine’s is older, established in 1840.
In existence before “New Orleans” even bore its name and has served as a Spanish armory, Tujague’s restaurant has survived decades of war, depression, fire, and plague.Tujague’s
Time to pack and head out for Los Angeles tomorrow morning,
