Our buddy Jay picked us up at the airport and headed straight to Liuzza’s By the Track based on his recommendation. This place is cool. It’s very laid back and they have a bar. But I guess there’s always a bar in New Orleans.
Their signature dish is the BBQ Shrimp PoBoy. But it’s not really a sandwich. It does have bread, but it’s really a plate of shrimp with their heavy rich buttery garlic sauce over bread. It’s good, but way too rich for me. Plus I’m not supposed to eat so much shrimp because of the gout.
I really did love the Oyster PoBoy. I can’t tell if it’s really anything special here, but I know it’s just good.
I feel like I’d come here a lot if I lived in New Orleans.
Now to be clear, there is another Liuzza’s in New Orleans that not related and has a different menu (Italian food and Muffalettas). This one By the Track is more PoBoys and Fried Seafood plates. Who is Liuzza? Why did two restaurants name themselves after her?
