new orleans food & drink highlights

PART 3

The holiday weekend is steadily approaching, and my wish for you is quality time with family and friends, sans computer screen. But before you sign off, I’d like to share with you the final segment of scrumptious eats from Michael and I’s New Orleans weekend. Today, I want to share photos from two FAN-tastic hotspots in the Central Business District (CBD): Ruby Slipper Cafe and Herbsaint.

Both harbored their own atmospheric charm and inventive dishes. And both left me completely satisfied, which doesn’t happen that often. Check out the photos below and let me know what you think…
