We took a taxi here from the French Quarter, where we were staying. Instead of the buffet, we ordered from the menu. We started with the gumbo, which for me, was the best I had on the trip (my husband thought the Death By Gumbo at R’Evolution was better). Either way, crazy good!
I had the fried chicken. I ordered from the menu instead of the buffet because I like to just eat the skin and doing so at a buffet is like eating the fish without the rice at an all you can eat sushi bar. Or at least I think. The chicken was not at all greasy, delicious and cripsy!
My husband got the red beans and rice that came with fried chicken. He loved it.
I got a side of greens, since I love greens. It was a little mild for my tastes, but when I make mine at home, I load it up with dried chiles, so probably unfair to go on my taste buds.
We got pecan pie for dessert. It was good but looked as if it had gone under a broiler before it came out and some of the pecans were a bit burnt for my tastes.
After lunch, a walk back to the hotel would have been great, but my husband was in his suit for the conference and neither of us had walking shoes on, so they called for a taxi and it came quickly. Another great meal in New Orleans!
