Muffuletta Sandwich - Originated in the French Quarter at the Central Grocery in New Orleans by an Italian immigrant family - Served on muffuletta loaf (Sicilian large, round, flat, sturdy bread) with olive salad, capicola, mortidella, salami, pepperoni, ham, swiss & provolone cheeses.
The “definitive”, butter-bathed BBQ shrimp (“wear the bib” or a “rain slicker”) is “mandatory” at this Uptown “neighborhood anchor”, a “time-honored” “standby” where “Italian marries New Orleans” on a “terrific” seafood-centric menu backed by a “super” oyster bar and delivered with “down-home friendliness”; “firmly old-world”, the slightly expensive locale feels “ancient” to some, but “it hasn’t lasted this long for nuthin’.”
This family-owned Italian ice cream parlor has lived in New Orleans’ French Quarter for years. Best known for its famous cannoli Siciliana, Angelo Brocato’s operates as a staple in must-have NOLA desserts. | essence.com
