Just got back from New Orleans. We went down for Jazzfest and had a great time. Here is a link for more pics.
The Beach Boys are my favorite band, so the news that they are reuniting is a big deal. That they are kicking off the tour in New Orleans, my favorite city in the U.S., is amazing. We are all set to go.
Sara and I have discovered a brilliant new brunch place: East Coast Grill. We’ve been there plenty of times for dinner, but never made the morning trek for brunch. We definitely will be there more often now.
Apparently, they have “the World’s Largest Bloody Mary Bar” and it certainly looked larger than average, with a dizzying array of accoutrements, including picked veggies, Guava Lava, salsas, hot sauces, etc.
This is what we got. Note the liberal use of the simply divine Inner Beauty Hot Sauce (and this is not one of those tourist-spicy “hot” sauces; it is the real deal, made with copious amounts of scotch bonnet peppers).
Banana Rellena (Muy Caliente!)…Smoked Pork Stuffed Banana
Grilled Corn on the Cob with Cumin-Lime Mayo, Queso Fresco and Chile
Wicked Spicy Smoked Pork Rib with Guava Lava Glaze and Inner Beauty Hot Sauce…
Amilcar’s Guacamole with Fresh Corn Tortilla Chips and Tomato Salsa
It was a phenomenal brunch. I recommend you get there as soon as you can.
