    NEW ORLEANS

CULINARY EXPLORATION IN LOUISIANA

NEW ORLEANS = VOODOO CENTRAL

Bustling Jazz, vindictive voodoo, and mouthwatering po-boys, but maybe more than anything New Orleans is home to my favorite sandwich shop in the country. Domolise's juicy shrimp po-boy is the material of culinary dreams. Looking for music you'll find a great little place on Bourbon street, but the locals will tell you to go to Frenchman street for great street jazz.
