Our destination – Sound Cafe, which I saw on Treme

…since it was closed, we stumbled into the nearby Schiro’s, which was actually on my list from last year after Michael Stipe recommended it…

on Goop, not to me. We have never met. (But speaking of celebs, we kept seeing Parker Posey, one of my favorite actresses, all morning!)

Schiro’s is part restaurant/bar…

…convenience/liquor store…

…laundromat…

…AND Bed and Breakfast!

The menu is equally eclectic…

…we opted for more traditional New Orleans fare…

I doused my po’ boy in a little more than just a drop of this Hot Sauce. It was, indeed, perfect!

As was this fried catfish – I skipped the mayo, but had it dressed in tomato, lettuce, and pickles.

Traded bites for one of Wendy’s fried oysters…

IMG_3391

…dipped in cocktail sauce…

…and David’s Tuesday special, Chicken Stew.

There were non-meat options for Abe too (he got a burger) but I didn’t waste my time today on vegetables.

After that long walk/meal, this little piggy needs a nap!!!

    So happy you are feeling great this trip and able to enjoy yourself. Good riddance to the bedridden New Orleans version of yesteryear.
