Mr. B's Restaurant on Royal    My favorite New Orleans Eatery

NEW ORLEANS EASILY, HANDS DOWN HAS THE BEST FOOD AMERICA OFFERS AND I THINK THE WORLD ALSO.  IT'S MIX OF FRENCH, ISLAND, CREOLE, ITALIAN AND SPANISH CULTURES OVER THE CENTURIES HAVE COME UP WITH THE PERFECT BLEND TO CREATE PERFECTION.  NEEDLESS TO SAY PERFECTION IS NOT REACHED WITHOUT  A LOT OF BUTTER, CREAM AND SUGAR!!! THERE IS A SECTION OF NEW ORLEANS CALLED FAT CITY, IT IS APTLY NAMED!
