Day 4 had us walking around the French Quarter quite a bit. At about 5pm that evening, this went past our window:
The Carnival Triumph was on her way to the Caribbean. Shortly after that, we headed to Mr. Ed's Oyster Bar and Fish House for dinner.
Charbroiled oysters, a specialty of New Orleans. Gulf oysters grilled with garlic butter and parmesan cheese. My husband could not get enough of these.
My dinner: Crawfish etoufee, andouille sausage, jambalaya, red beans and rice. New Orleans on a platter.
My husband got the Creole Redfish - redfish fillet with BBQ shrimp, a creole meuniere sauce, jambalaya and vegetables. A nice last meal before the cruise the next morning.
We started the day off with a trip to the National WWII Museum.
If you have not been, it is worthwhile to see it. I was pleased with the exhibits, which are extremely detailed and full of fantastic memorabilia.
In New Orleans, seafood is king. I could not resist the amazing gulf oysters, and my husband could not resist the amazing bloody mary's that are served all throughout the city.
Dinner that evening was at the spectacular Donald Link/Stephen Stryjewski restaurant, Cochon. Get yourself a boucherie plate...
...and an order of smoked beef brisket with horseradish potato salad. One really cannot go wrong here.
