I seriously miss New Orleans already! This year I visited a few new places and of course my favorites like Deanie’s, Erin Rose, and Felix’s. I was able to try Acme Oyster this time,twice actually and braved the line both times. Now I can finally make my judgement as to if Acme is worth the wait or if you should just go to Felix’s across the street with shorter to no lines. I honestly like Felix’s just a little better but Acme was definitely tasty. I was also able to check out some great music and do a little shopping.

Crab Quartet: Stuffed Crab, Crabmeat au Gratin, and a Double order of Fried Crab Claws instead of a Soft Shell Crab
Bacchanal Wine: I loved this place. Great wine selection with friendly staff to help with your selection. Pick your own cheese from the fridge and they arrange the cheese plate for you. Nice menu selection and live music.

Have to end with a Sazerac from the hotel’s Carousel Bar. After three years of staying here I was finally able to sit at the carousel lol
