If I ever made it on the show, "Best Thing I Ever Ate", I would without a doubt choose the eggs benedict from Stanley in Jackson Square. Simple enough, but this little guy has something extra, BOUDIN SAUSAGE, a delicious blend of rice, pork, and spices!

Afternoon Cocktail Time:
Head across the street to Muriel's for some rooftop drinks, privacy and great views.
Lunch time I would hit up Ignatius Eatery & Grocery in Uptown for the shrimp & grits sampler and an spicy bowl of red beans and rice.
|no alcohol so buy an old fashioned bottle of coca cola, but wait... you can buy beer to brown bag while on your way out|
Top the night off with some local characters and a plate of alligator and crawfish cheesecake from Jacques-Imo's on Oak Street. The atmosphere is funky and relaxed from the chef himself to the creole music playing throughout.
|I kid you not, the cheesecake is to die for|
|the party pours out onto the street|
|probably not the best idea before race day|
I would love to be in a New Orleans food coma, but instead I'm just starving and counting down the days until our next trip.
