I want that. Why am I in V-a when I could be in NOLA?

Oh, that's right. I have to work tomorrow!

Pogo,
Don't do without the Calas at The Coffee Pot in the Quarter. This is French Toast like none you've ever had before nor ever will have again. I haven't tried it, but I have spies who've been my advance guards, as it were.
There are also a few places serving the old Pain Perdu ("Lost Bread") in the city: Dooky Chase on Orleans Avenue is a leading contender for where to try that.
An' you GOTTA go to Uglesich's on Baronne Street!
Plus, if you want a late night meal, hit The Camelia Grill on Carrollton, right where the streetcar turns from St. Charles.
As for a good breakfast place, you'll never beat The Hummingbird on St. Charles. It looks like Skid Row, but it's really good and perfectly safe anytime.
Gracious, y'all making me HONGRY again....
Crescentially, Ort. Carlton in Warmer Yet Athens, Georgia.

BTW, last time I was in NOLA, I got an all-debris Po-Boy at Mothers. Interesting experience to say the least, but I'd recommend not going that route -- it's a bit much. But as a topping for other roasted meats, all I can say is wow!

Debris is quite good on the John G.! I don't think I could handle an all-debris but then I couldn't handle the soft-shell crab po'boy I was last served there. Wimped out on the second half and ate the crab out of it and left the bread and fixin's behind.

What do Ort.'s spies look like? Has anyone actually seen one?

We should talk. I'm hoping to take a few days off before the pool season hits. I've been thinking about going to NOLA or Gatlinburg. NOLA has better food, Gatlinburg has better hiking trails.

Catch the Camellia Grill on Carrollton & St. Charles for grilled pecan pie ala mode. They make a good cheeseburger and malt too.

The following recipe is from The Best of New Orleans (Collins Publishers, 1994) by Brooke Dojny and has always resulted in an authentic Central Grocery taste for me.

Olive salad: 1 3oz. jar pimiento-stuffed green olives sliced
1 stalk celery, thinly sliced
1 large tomato,seeded & coarsely chopped
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Assemble: 1 round loaf of Italian breat with sesame seed
2 oz. thinly sliced baked ham
2 oz. thinly sliced Genoa salami
2 oz. siced provolone
2 oz. mozzarella
Generous helping of olive salad

I always lightly toast the bread after dabbing with olive oil. This keeps bread from getting soggy. And, if I may throw in a pitch for a home town meat purveyor, use Volpi salami (Central Grocery in New Orleans does I am told). Or, if you happen to be in St. Louis take a trip to "The Hill"(the City's Italian section) and eat a muffaleta at Viviano's. Every bit as good as Central.


M&M, OK, I'm going to try this version for a wine tasting party this weekend (I'll bring a robust red). There'll be three couples for a heavy hors d'oeurve meal. It was requested I bring my superbowl sandwich noted on page one, but I thought I'd give this a try.

Is this recipe for one sandwich (looks like it to me)? How big is the bread? What I've seen on tv, the bread looks about 6" in diameter.I can get something like that at the Colombus Bakery in Syracuse. Just trying to work out proportions. Hope you can help me out

Well...the sandwiches were a big hit. I went to Lombardi's in Syracuse for the meats and cheeses, Colombus Bakery for the bread. The bread was bigger than I remembered so I tripled the recipe, used two loaves of bread, and cut it pizza style.

I modified the recipe slightly by addding a clove of garlic, chopped basil and cutting the oil and vinegar. As I was mixing a triple batch, 3/4 cup of olive oil seemed too much so I only doubled the oil and vinegar, (it was plenty sloppy). I also addded some spicey soppresseta to the meats, half the volume of the other meats.

This is now a permanent fixture at our house, great eats, thanks!!!!!

Dearfolk,
When I ventured down to Crescent City in the mid-1990's, I thought the Progress half-sandwich I ate beat out the Central half-one, if only by a hair. It'll be fun to return and compare notes a second time. All I need is a suitable companion: that city is too much for a lone traveler to keep to him/herself.
Trout sandwich at Casamento's? Pshaw, I ain't NEVER gonna lose no weight visitin' N'Awlins. I just had a shepherd's pie omelette at The Normaltown Cafe', and y'all making me HONGRY all over th'again!
Warding Away The Spells, Ort. Carlton in Athens, Georgia, Which Is 522 Miles From Lake Ponchartrain (Which May Well Qualify As The World's Largest Mudpuddle!).
P. S. Where's Mayhaw Man been? Has anyone heard from him? He stay down by the Abita Springs somewhere.


Forget it! One of life's great tragedies is the fact that the Progress Grocery is history. When I visited last January I found it gutted and the storefront "under construction". I asked the construction crew it they were just remodeling the Progress, but they assured me the Progress was gone for good.

So you got one choice for the definitive muffaletta now (other places make 'em, but these two claimed to have invented 'em)--the Central.

Now I gotta tell MY muffaletta story. I like to go to NO by Amtrak and I always get a muffaletta to take with me on the train when I leave. Generally it fumigates the entire car--no vampires need approach! I don't know if the other passengers appreciate that delightful smell, but I nibble on that sandwich for nearly 1000 miles.

By the way--no, I'm not sure if I put the right number of f's, l's and t's in that word. Doesn't change how yummy is the sandwich.

Dearfolk,
This answer is overdue, I know, but I missed it the first time around. My spies must have been asleep at the switch; the freight rumbled through without my knowledge.
Variety is the spies of life. Or so I've scene.
Making Sure You Know, Ort. Carlton in Late-Again Athens, Georgia.
P. S. Lleechef, if you were to have a street named after you in New Orleans, would it be Llee Circlle? (The Hummingbird Hotel Coffee Shop is adjacent, llucky for you!)
P. P. S. I tell people periodically that I live on Sharon Cyrkle. Once I received a postcard addressed to that; someone in the post office had written "Red Rubber Ball" beside the word "Cyrkle." My favorite record by them is "Turn Down Day," followed closely by "Reading Her Paper." The latter is so obscure that only WGOE in Richmond, Virginia had the audacity to play it. I own a well-used U. S. store stock 45 of it.
P. P. P. S. Most of my spies have Slavic accents and always tell people they were sent by "Fearless Leader." Another one of them is pink and extremely suave.
P. P. P. P. S. This has absolutely nothing to do with "I Spy (For The F. B. I.)" by Jamo Thomas, which I finally own a copy of on 45.
P. P. P. P. P. S. Y'all have wanted an Ort.-answer this goofy for awhile. Here's hoping you appreciate it. I return to lurk mode.

Gosh, I don't know. I was so upset by the absence of the Progress that I'm not sure. I think Luigi's was there but it wasn't in the place where I remembered the Progress being (standing in front looking at the central, Luigi's, if it's there, was to the RIGHT whereas I remembered the Progress being 2 doors to the LEFT). Anyway, I just headed into the Central to EAT away my sorrows.

There are several N.O. natives who post here. Maybe one of them will straighten us out.

I've never made it to N.O., and what we have in Kansas that passes for a muffaleta is a poor substitute (Schlotzsky's Deli), so I've been making my own for a few years. I bake a sourdough loaf in a 9" cake pan, split it horizontally, slather on some homemade olive salad, stack on some meats and cheese, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for a few hours, then slice into wedges. I'm not sure how authentic it is, but I've had houseguests wrapping wedges in napkins and sneaking them into purses or coat pockets.

Poor substitute indeed. Schlotzky's was one of the great roadfood disappointments in my life. The name is great. The food, worse than mediocre. They wouldn't know real corned beef or pastrami if it rotted in their fridge. And the very thought of what they might call a muffaletta makes me cringe.
