For the past several months I have been planning our trip to Convergence 2013 in New Orleans. And of course people have recommended some great restaurants “I can’t miss” when I get there.
|My collegue Amber Bell here at CAL submitted her favorites:|
Multiple Locations including the Riverwalk Marketplace and French Market.
No visit to New Orleans is complete without stopping at Café du Monde. One of a kind chicory flavored coffee and AMAZING beignets.
923 Decatur St | (504) 523-1620
BEST MUFFALTA SANDWICH!!
Another stop I made looking for the best muffalata sandwich. I liked the atmosphere and would go back for a lunch or dinner.
While there make sure you get their famous Pimm’s cup drinks!!
