Those do sound good :)
Sound like your kind of places Rodent. But I have to agree, the best foods to be found will come out of a truck.
Food trucks, as most know, are a controversy in some cities. In Portland, they are packed bumper to bumper on large parking lots. In my small city, there are a few scattered trucks. When the downtown organization got them all together for regular downtown street food fairs, the local restaurants complained - they say that their restaurants pay the high rents and overhead , and here come the trucks who have less overhead and are taking their business. The advocates say that such diversity is good for all business, restaurant or truck. So far in NOLA, food trucks, while present, do not exactly overwhelm the traveler like in Portland. Though I love the appeal of the trucks, I have mixed feelings about lots of trucks entering the food scene in NOLA. The current scene is so cool, and the possibility of trucks pressuring the profits of the current restaurants now in picturesque historic buildings may not be a real positive change.Edited: 2:21 pm, February 03, 2013
I highly recommend Booty's. Fun menu and great bar. Nice renovation, too!
Jimjade, did you read the article? The two main places it talks about are both in brick and mortar locations, they just serve what you would typically call "street food". I'll definitely check Booty's in May, not sure about the one in Central City.
Just watched (again) Anthony Bordeins(sp) Layover (New Orleans) show last night on the travel channel. Very interesting if you can catch it! He visited Taceaux Loceaux after drinking with a chef buddy at King Pin (in the middle of the night/early morning). Apparently the city is not in favor of the Food Truck yet, so we'll see what happens in the future!
Kitty, no I missed your Facebook posts about them. I've kind of been to Milkfish, since it's the same space as Who Dat Coffee Cafe (didn't try the food at Milkfish, though, just had breakfast at Who Dat). But the other place sounds really nice and a very possible place for the Friday I'll be there in May. :) Thanks!Edited: 4:13 pm, February 05, 2013
