The OLD FASHION And NEW ORLEANS

An Old Fashion and New Orleans. Two things this guy loves dearly. And drinking Old Fashions in New Orleans and Bourbon Old Fashions to be more specific is a favorite pastime of mine, especially at such fine Bars as Napoleon House, The Long Bar at Tujague’s, at Arnaud’s or Galatoire’s.

    The first thing I order from my waiter at my beloved Galatoire’s is a Bourbon Old Fashion. They make them perfectly here, muddling an Orange Slice with sugar, Maraschino Cherry, Soda, and Angostora Bitters before filling the glass with Ice and adding my Bourbon. The waiter brings my Old Fashion and I’m in my element, quite satisfied. I’m at Galatoire’s in New Orleans. It’s one of my favorite restaurants in the World. I have my drink, sitting in the main dining room looking the menu over. “Oh Bliss.”
What to have for lunch. Shall I get a Gumbo, Raw Oysters, or Oysters Rockefeller to start? Decisions, Decisions! And my main Course? Trout Almondine (a House Specialty), Shrimp Clemenceau, or Filet Mignon topped with Fried Oysters and Hollandaise. Think I’ll go for a Cup of Gumbo, followed by the Oysters Rockefeller  and Trout Almondine for my main. They should go with my Bourbon Old Fashion quite nicely.
  What, “No Wine with Your Meal,” you ask, knowing what a Wine freak I am.
“No, not in New Orleans my friends.” I do not drink Wine in the Cresent City. It’s all pretty much Cocktails when I’m down there, maybe a Beer or two, but no Wine what-so-ever in New Orleans for me. Hey it’s the way to go in New Orleans. That’s what you do down there, Cocktails are preferred throughout the meal over Wine. And that’s fine by me. It just seems to go better. My Bourbon Old Fashion and all the fine Creole Cuisine. I Love it.
   So, if you’re ever down there, in that wonderful city on the Mighty Mississippi, New Orleans, go to Galatoire’s, Antoine’s, Arnauds’s. Order yourself a nice Lunch or Dinner, and don’t forget to get a couple Bourbon Old Fashions to go with your meal. It’s a match made in Heaven, Creole Food  an Old Fashion and New Orleans, “Do it.”

Reply To CHOWER on CHOWHOUND ABOUT THE RUDENESS of The Owners of The CENTRAL GROCER in NEW ORLEANS WHERE YOU’LL Get The BEST DAM MUFFULETTA in NEW ORLEANS Which Means The BEST DAM MUFFULETTA in The WORLD

Central Grocery is Rude

When my parents were in town last weekend, I insisted that my mom and dad try the muff. While standing in line, the guys behind the counter were straight up rude. It offended my parents who are pretty laid back folks. Bouncing around on the boards, I think they may have a reputation for this. I’m a big fan of exercising the only power I have by boycotting a place that disrespects my patronage. I’m willing to write off Central Grocery, but need another option for a great muff. Suggestions from the board for a great muff and a place to buy good olive spread?
