We chatted up this older gentlemen on the plane who overheard we were talking about food. This New Orleans native gave us some recommendations for bars and restaurant. Obviously, our first stop was to get a drink. We hit one on his list, Napoleon House, which apparently is housed in the famous building. Got in right before the rain poured down for only a short period. Old timey New Orleans look, old fashioned bartenders. It kinda reminded me of Pirate of Caribbean the ride. I don’t know why.
We took in a Pimms Cup, Sazerac, Bloody Marys and Dixie Beers. Snacked on a half of a Muffaleta sandwich. This half sucker was huge. We were thinking they gave us a whole one. It tasted like a meat pizza. Not too olive tasting. It was good.
