I just have to go to Camillia Grill at some point, but couldn't get in the door this weekend, and muffalottas were out as well for the same reason from central grocery. If I had been there for the French Quarter fest I would have been on foot, but I just wanted to grab it to go.
If you are still there, things have surely calmed down and getting in won't be an issue.
It's a wonderful time to be there, Sunday was soo beautiful to cruise down magazine and St. Charles. Hope you enjoyed the stay....perfect timing. Next week will be New Orleans crazy time...I like Jazz Fest better than Mardi GRAS!
