The last month of August has been a busy one with work and traveling, but now I’m back with more photos from my Tour du South. The story picks up in New Orleans…
Mississippi is a huge state, something we learned driving the 10ish hours from Birmingham to NOLA.
Bridge into New Orleans.
We stayed in this beautiful Airbnb on Magazine Street in the Garden District of NOLA. This part of NOLA is much quieter, with lots of great galleries and artists’ homes.
Henah & Laura on the front porch.
The decoration in this place was impeccable.
A little welcome gift from our host!
Dinner our first night was at Delachaise Wine Bar at the recommendation of our host. The restaurant was tiny, homey, and rustic, but it had surprisingly refreshing and modern dishes. Despite the ridiculous NOLA humidity, diners ate in the quaint front patio.
Now that’s a grilled cheese.
Dessert at the Creole Creamery after! A must stop for some really unique flavors.
Brunch the next day at Elizabeth’s. The line was out the door, but the meal was worth the hour wait. Plus, we were able to wait upstairs at their bar and gaze longingly at everyone else’s meals.
Fried eggplant benedict.
Corn meal waffle with a duck and sweet potato hash, topped with pepper jelly. Un. Believable.
