Breakfast on Mardi Gras Day @ Stanley Restaurant, New Orleans
Softshell crab po-boy: Looks like it could crawl right off the plate. This was a friend’s sandwich, but I had a great version at the Galley in Metairie.
It’s now almost two weeks since Mardi Gras, but I have a few photos left from New Orleans. These pictures were snapped at Stanley, which is a relatively new restaurant in the French Quarter. The name, I assume, is an homage to Stanley Kowalski, the main protagonist of “A Streetcar Named Desire.”
Bananas Foster French Toast: Ice cream for breakfast. After the gluttonous week that lead up to Mardi Gras, I had clearly stopped caring.
