Thanks to Thrillist I got to head down to New Orleans for their #HotelThrillist weekend! Yes, I spent 3 days in NOLA staying at the Royal Sonesta hotel on Bourbon street, so you can imagine how this went... But between all the amazing parties they threw, and the WAY WAY too much Jack Daniels, we hit up some of New Orleans best eats!
Even though I've had it before, I had to make the trip to a few New Orleans Institutions and first hit up Cafe Du Monde for their beignets and Central Grocery for their muffuletta sandwiches. Both are must gets for anyone making the trip!
Then it was time to hit some of the newer spots! First stop was Shaya which ive been salivating over for months over! Shaya is worth all the praise its been getting as its some of the best Israeli food ive ever had! And dont leave without getting the dessert menu and ordering the Babka Ice Cream Sandwich! I had eaten at Cochon last year, and knew I had to get back for brunch this time, and wasn't disappointed in the slightest! Don't go and not order the Fried Oyster and Bacon Sandwich! One last brunch spot before heading back to NYC and that was Willa Jean for their Everything Croissant with Lox and their Honey Fried Chicken Sandwich!
New Orleans is one of my favorite cities and I def cant wait to go back.... but first i need a little detox... 3 days was probably enough
