New Orleans or Bust

Commander’s Palace. It’s located in the Garden District and if you haven’t been, I suggest getting to your reservation early and allowing time to walk along the streets {the houses are amazing, were talking #lifegoals} John Goodman lives in the area {it’s his favorite restaurant btws} so you can imagine! After dinner we headed to Sucré for French treats {they make the most amazing macaroons} then it was back to our hotel {The Roosevelt} for a night cap and much needed rest.  

Thursday was spent wandering the streets of the French Quarter and stopping at some must-do places for breakfast and lunch. Café Du Monde for beignets and café au lait. We choose to take our coffee and beignets to go and eat them in quiet Jackson Square park while listening to street music {it’s perfect New Orleans!} For lunch we went to Central Grocery for Muffulettas. They have the best in town and it’s been a family business since it opened in 1946. It’s a place where both tourists and locals flock to and theres almost always a line {but so worth it!} See more of my favorite eateries in New Orleans below and suggestions on where to stay if you plan to go!
