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.

Green Goddess Restaurant in Exchange Alley

 

 

 

If you’re searching for a funky and fresh dining experience that sets itself apart from the conventionality of many traditional French Quarter favorites, look no further than the Green Goddess.   Located at 307 Exchange Alley off Bienville, this colorful restaurant is eccentric, to say the least!    With limited indoor seating and a wonderful outdoor courtyard when weather permits, an intimate dining experience is in store.   Chefs Chris DeBarr and Paul Artigues clearly know their stuff and together create a truly unique menu, combining local ingredients with flavors and traditions from nearly every inch of the globe  . Where would one expect to see South Indian Lentil Pancakes, Korean Barbequed Pork Belly, Bangers and Mash, and Louisiana Oysters find a home on the same menu?   Don’t be surprised to hear the exotic origins of each dish straight from the Chef’s mouth, as tableside visits are customary.   For the truly adventurous, a surprise combination of the “Chef’s Cheese Treasures,” as well as a pre-set “Tasting Menu,” featuring an array of restaurant favorites, are offered daily and are perfect to split between 2 or 3.   While the food is sure to please a diversity of palates (plenty of vegetarian options), the Green Goddess takes the cake with its extensive offering of beverages.   The menu includes original infused cocktails, fresh tropical juices, Vietnamese coffee, teas, local and imported beer, and a truly impressive list of wines and champagnes to fit any budget.   Treat yourself to an exploration of flavor and trust the staff’s rather enlightened recommendations!
