Our Blog’s Year in Review, Southern Comfort B&B 2012

 

As 2012 comes to a close, we wanted to look back at some of our blog posts from throughout the year. Here at Southern Comfort Bed & Breakfast, we aim to bring you some of the most interesting and useful information regarding the potential places, people, and traditions to look out for when you visit the city. In case you missed any of our posts throughout the year—and especially if you’re planning a visit to New Orleans and our B&B sometime soon—here’s a recap of some of our favorites.

Food and restaurants are one of our favorite aspects of New Orleans culture, and we featured plenty of both throughout the year. Green Goddess in Exchange Alley and the Delachaise down the street are two of our favorites. And could you tell we love oysters? Between the Louisiana Oyster Jubilee, charbroiled oysters, and our “Slurping Oysters” post, you can’t miss our devotion to these delectable bivalves. We also shared some tips on where to find surprising local bar food and late-night dining options, which we also thought might be highly valuable to our guests.

The Delachaise – Uptown’s Upscale, Late-Night

The Delachaise

The Delachaise is especially lively when packed with patrons touting plates of delicious, high-class bar food alternatives and topped-off wine and beer glasses. The wine and beer selection is enormous and impressive, with more than 20 different red, white, rose, and sparkling wines, as well as nearly 30 types of bottled beer and several more available on tap. I personnally think that this is the best selection of wine by the glass in the city.

In addition to fine spirits, the Delachaise’s food menu is the result of the chef’s world travels, unique, and served well into the night. In addition to the typical wine bar cheese plates and olives, they are perhaps best known for their French fries cooked in goose fat, frog legs, and flank steak bruschetta. They also serve gourmet grilled cheese and the Boz sandwich, plus Bangkok-style shrimp Clemenceau and Cuban twice-cooked pork.

After ordering your food and drinks at the bar, you can choose to dine inside or outside in their quaint but chic patio courtyard. The unique architecture of the building can really be appreciated from outside, especially its unusual shaped copper roof and the bright red sign matching the red umbrellas out back. Sit back, relax and watch the streetcar go by.

The Delachaise Wine Bar, great place for late night eats.

Looking for some late-night nom noms? A long day seeing the sights or hitting the town can work up quite the appetite. Luckily, New Orleans has some of the finest food in the world, even at all hours of the night. Not far from Southern Comfort, your New Orleans B&B and throughout Uptown New Orleans, you can find a wide variety of grub whenever hunger may strike.

Delachaise (3442 St. Charles Ave) serves up a swanky menu of wine, beer, and high-class food—a substantial upgrade from your typical late-night apps and cheeseburger fare. From cheese plates, pate, and eggplant cannolis to smoked salmon cakes, frog legs, and Cuban twice-cooked pork, guests can enjoy a wide variety of classy dishes and imported beer late into the evening. They have an incredible selection of wine by the glass. This is  also a good last stop for dessert, their Chocolate Molten Cake is to die for.

Open 24-7-365, The Avenue Pub (1732 St. Charles Ave) boasts one of the largest and best beer selections in town, as well as a unique and impressive menu of nontraditional burgers, sandwiches, and appetizers. Try out the Dump Truck Fries, topped with pork roast, slow-cooked, au jus, and sautéed onions, Green Goblins, jalapeno, cream cheese, and bacon-stuff wonton shells, or The Tea Time, an Indian-inspired sandwich with chicken, kiwi, cucumber, and cucumber cream cheese spread.
