This week Hanabi gives us the dirt on his trip to New Orleans. Let’s get Cafe Du Monde right out of the way. It’s truly an amazing place in which $5 gets you instant gratification. A chicory coffee and plate of fresh beignets is really all you need. Open 24 hours too! As Hanabi is wont to do, he visited an Izakaya for a fresh take on octopus. It took him awhile to eat it but it was worth it. He went to the famed Lafitte’s Blacksmith and saw a cop on horseback stroll up and order a drink. Speaking of drinks, he sampled LA 31’s Biere Noir. He stuck around the French Quarter, but that place is loaded with places to eat and drink and just see weird things in general. Oh, Hanabi will be there over halloween and Day of the Dead so there will be more to report.
