Jacques-Imo's delivered in a big way. This is a super cool can't miss destination, despite it not being anywhere near where you would be were you visiting NOLA as a tourist, it's worth the cab ride or whatever means to get there. The vibe is funky, artsy, and just, well, different. The food, was spectacular.
This is a little something called "Shrimp and Alligator Sausage Cheescake" (yes, I said alligator sausage):
None of the photos will do any of these amazing dishes justice as they were shot with an iPhone in a dark restaurant but they are something.
The second appetizer is a southern classic, "Fried Green Tomatoes":
We shared the apps so as to sample two of them. Here is my entree, "Smothered Chicken with Biscuits":
And the sides totally blew me away, I couldn't have picked better ones to complement my entree. Here are Corn Maquechoux and Mixed Southern Greens:
If you find yourself in NOLA, get yourself to this place but be prepared to wait up to two or more hours on a busy night. Fortunately, Monday night of this week was not that busy and only about a 20 minute wait for us and they don't take reservations except for parties of 5 or more, so buddy up!
This morning, Tuesday, I hit the gym at 5:30 and got a nice workout in and right now I am chilling for a little while. Conference action begins this afternoon at around 1:00 for me - catch y'all later.
