I just found out about this festival. It’s the “New Orleans Roadfood Festival”. From their website:
“Six blocks of Royal Street in the heart of the French Quarter will be lined with dozens of top Roadfood cooks from New Orleans and all of Louisiana as well as across America, each offering a unique specialty. This is NOT typical and expected festival fare: it is a tase of America’s most celebrated dishes, all gathered in one place: a foodie’s dream. Portions are right-sized and priced to provide everyone a chance to taste the maximum number of great regional eats as they stroll through the French Quarter inhaling delicious smells that range from real Texas pit barbecue to Pecan Pie to artisan boudin sausage made by Cajun country’s most beloved butchers. There is no admission fee, just bring plenty of appetite”.
Some of the food to be served:
Seafood chowder from Maine
Sausage & Brisket
Oyster Foch PoBoy from Antoine’s
Crawfish & Meat Pies
5 Way Chili from Cincinnati
Shrimp Remoulade Poboy
There’s more, but I’m getting very hungry. Hoping we can be there this weekend!
