48 hours in new orleans - swizzle stick cocktail
The visit to New Orleans has expired for many years.
But with a baby at home and only 48 hours to take it all, I was able to have an overview of a city that soared to my favorite.
Just two days later, my love for New Orleans was so deep that I asked my husband many times what he thought about moving there.
But life is full.
He reminded me that time in New Orleans might not be spent on Bourbon Street and eating Begues, but on work and ins. and-
End of daily life
Although I don't see enough, it may take too much time on Uber.
Traveling Bourbon Street, I'm still excited about my 48 hours in New Orleans.
I missed a lot but it just means there are a lot of reasons to go back.
Here are my seven experiences that can't be missed: We chose the montaion hotel as the base camp for its location in the French Quarter, its historical significance, the rooftop pool and the fact that it is said to be haunted.
We arrived early hours prior to check in and were told that the only room available was a room with no windows.
Strange, yes, but the next morning it actually came in handy when we spent the night outside.
The hotel is famous for its Carousel Bar, which is a 25-
Revolving bar next to lobby.
It rotates every 15 minutes, which is about the time it takes to finish a glass of wine.
From New York City, it takes a lot of time to impress us, especially in terms of food.
But Galatoire's is one of the most memorable dining experiences I 've ever had.
We went for lunch one Sunday afternoon shortly after the plane landed.
Galatoire's on Bourbon Street, but don't expect the clothes you usually wear on Bourbon Street to fly in these 100 + kilometers --year-
We started ordering shrimp rolls and duck rolls.
Both of these are great, but I'm still talking about a close-
So this is absolutely necessary.
Roast crab meat with mushroom (
Guilty but heavy)
And the shrimp creole that my husband was talking about nearby. weekly basis. And to drink?
Why, of course, Sazerac.
Galatoire's closed on Monday.
It's a bit far from the French Quarter, but the po' boys of the Parkway Bakery is worth a visit. It's a 10-to-
15 minutes by Canal Street tram, then less than 10 minutes
A few minutes walk from Jefferson Davis Avenue station.
The Baihui bakery serves 25 different po' boys and I am ready to order something that is very standard.
But the hotel doorman recommended surfing and turf with roast beef and shrimp.
Then sprinkle with gravy.
I doubt it, but it's definitely the best po' boy I 've ever had.
Important: The Parkway Bakery is closed on Tuesday.
Because of the time, we took our haunted history hiking in the afternoon.
While the rain does make it a bit sinister, the news in town is that the tour should take place at night in order to maximize the thrill.
However, it was still very pleasant, and two hours passed quickly despite the downpour.
The tour started in a voodoo shop, it was a little creepy, and with our guide, in black, in a cloak and hat, I didn't watch us or talk to us until the tour officially started, this is actually very creepy.
As soon as we left, he quickly warmed up and knew the history of New Orleans very well.
So while the tour does have a haunted angle, it's mainly a historic tour of New Orleans.
Learning something will make you feel better about all the meals you 've been doing.
The old kuai wine house is a perfect place to take a quick break from the darkness of Bourbon Street, or at least on a rainy afternoon.
Antique chandeliers and marble fountains are the right backdrop for the bar that is said to be haunted.
It is said that the drink "old vermouth" invented there in 1874 is still on the menu.
Today, it is made from camperst, fennel and sodas and served on ice.
Lois Hotel in New Orleans Arts District is the most charming cafe and bar in Adelaide.
Far from Bourbon Street, more civilized.
To be honest, we went mainly because of the name of our daughter Adelaide, but we were so glad we left.
Taste signature cocktails if you go: Adelaide Swizzle, made from New Orleans amber rum, Peychaud's bitter wine, lime, soda and secret ingredients.
Must be in any first
World Coffee is a new moon City facility that has spawned several outposts (
A few in the mall
But the original place is the best.
Skip the hotel's coffee, walk to the French market on Decatur Street, compete with other tourists for a table and sit down and enjoy your Burnett. (
French doughnuts with powdered sugar. )
Actually, it is the only food on the menu.
You can drink milk, coffee (
Black or gold)
Or orange juice. That's it.
But what else do you need?
