St. Jame’s Cheese Company - cheese heaven! Limited menu of cheese plates, salads and sandwiches. They serve craft beer and wine too. Smokey blue sandwich was ginormous with the perfect side salad. Plenty of seating inside and outside on the patio. Lunch or dinner. Next time: get the good stuff to-go. Order from the specials. Order manchego salad and beecher’s cheddar cheese. HH: thursday - sunday 5-8pm $15 gets you glass of wine and 3 cheeses.
Creole Creamery - ice cream and shakes. Gourmet ingredients, inventive combinations. Nothing else like it in NOLA so no wonder it’s so popular. Plenty of seating. Next time: more samples.
Wine Seller - feels like home. Fantastic wine store with surprising price range. Plenty of $7-12 bottles. I was tempted by the Oregon pinot, Cline zin and Spanish tempranillos. They had a tasting when I wandered in on Friday afternoon. Next time: ask for advice.
Prytania Theater - the only theater worth visiting in NOLA. One-screen magic. Opened in 1915 and featured in the famous novel Confederacy of Dunces. The best part is the variety: blockbusters, indie, classics and cult films at midnight. Cheapest matinee in town. Next time: see a classic or midnight movie.
Next time: la crepe nanou (romantic, dinner only), king pin (elvis themed dive bar), zara’s little giant supermarket (local food to-go), new orleans coffee & beignets, manhattanjack (cafe, bakery, chocolates)
