Honestly, their famous sandwiches were underwhelming and not as good as they advertise. As someone who has a Sicilian heritage and goes to Italy all the time, I can say that this sandwich wasn't very Italian and definitely was invented here. So whatever they tell...More

Had to stop to try the muffuletta while it town. It did not disappoint. Really good sandwich. The olive salads oils really soaked into the bread it was not soggy just delicious. Great flavor to the meat and cheeses.

The store didn't catch my attention and I passed it twice! However, their muffuletta is amazing, I didn't expect such good taste from a grocery store :P. The store is across street from Cafe Du Monte, I guess you can have coffee+Beignets+muffuletta all together!

We made the trek to Central Grocery and split a half of a muffuletta (they are huge, and we saved room for beignets). It was fun to poke around in the grocery store, as they have an interesting collection of imports and specialty items. You...More

We had tried to get to Central Grocery so many times to get one of these famous muffulettas, but they were always sold out by the time we got there. If you go for lunch be sure to get there at a decent time. I...More

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
