I will say that, I took a little hiatus from the blog, but I am back and will aim for more frequent entries, lets aim for weekly. I’ve been having some great culinary delights, and I have so much to share so stay tuned. July was a great month for food. I went to New Orleans to celebrate the 4th of July, and got to experience a few of famous chef John Besh’s restaurants. Who knew Chef Besh had an eatery in a museum in NOLA, but he does in the WWII Museum. American Sector is a great place for a burger and shake, and that is exactly what I had.
The Mexican Burger, French Fries, Strawberry Milkshake
The burger was a bit more dry than I usually like, but, all and all I would go back and try the other burgers. Next up was Bourgne, in the Hyatt Regency New Orleans. It was another casual spot, but highlighted the seafood of New Orleans. But alas I chose pork, which was yummy, however, it was a lot. The star was the goat
Curry Goat and Naan, Bread, and
Crispy Pork Shank (celery root, lentils, orange mint gremolata)
But the best of all meals in NOLA…. Emeril’s Restaurant. This was the number 1 meal. They treat you like royalty, they don’t call you ma’am they call you Mr. so and so or Ms. so and so. I love feeling VIP. All of the seats at the table to watch the kitchen were taken but we did get seated near the Kitchen and I had a perfect view of the expeditor. The assorted breads that they bring you are great.. One word, cornbread, it was the best.
Fish on the bed of Fried Green Tomatoes and slaw, bread, mussels, and key lime pie
The waiters were awesome, and I just thoroughly enjoyed the dining experience, so I will absolutely be back.
