Glad you're enjoying New Orleans, it really is a special place.
Thanks for sharing,
Hit up Cochon for lunch with my Pa. Though I was looking forward to it with great anticipation, Couchon was a disappointment. Ribs were blah. Fried alligator was good, but thick cotton balls could have been substituted for meat and it would have been just the same (fried anything with a sweet, succulent sauce is a recipe for ok-ness). Sat at the bar, which gave us a great vantage point for what we missed out on which might have tasted better--but what we were served was slightly disappointing. Loved seeing the drugged out, white-lipped motherfucker on the corner firing bullets into the surrounding buildings with his fingers, though.
