Well it's exactly one week until my trip to New Orleans or what I call my Culinary Adventure. We have our room booked at the Ritz, which to my delight has just finished a 100 million dollar renovation, brilliant! So besides great food I think I will be indulging in some well deserved spa treatments, hey it is my birthday weekend.
Ok so onto the important things, food.
We have 4 days and 3 nights to dine so I have spent plenty of time and research planning our itinerary. After much deliberation, we have decided in honor of one of my favorite chefs and television programs, Daniel Boulud's After Hours to make stops at Bayona, Conchon and August. Broussard's, Antoine's and the Acme Oyster House are also on the agenda. I love New Orleans and have never had a bad meal there, NEVER.
This will be my first time there since Katrina and though I know so much has changed, I feel confident that the great food, music and wonderful hospitality of the people of New Orleans will be in tact.
Acme Oyster House have my oysters ready and my martini cold and dirty...it's been a while and I can't wait to catch up...
