Champagne and fries... an interesting combination and the beginning of a fantastic meal at Sylvain in New Orleans' French Quarter.
Last weekend's trip to New Orleans hosted by their Convention and Visitors Bureau included a stroll through the French Quarter. After a fire and the subsequent exchange of the territory to the Spanish following the Seven Years War, the French Quarter is actually rather Spanish in its architecture. Royal Street, Rue Royale, and Calle Royal are one and the same. With its narrow streets walking is definitely the way to experience the Quarter and it doubles as a great way to work of some off the rich food which we'd been eating. It was time for lunch though and we ducked into Sylvain for a bite.
