Breakfast All Over Town

Whether you like traditional Southern Sunday brunch of large 
Gulf shrimp with tasso ham
and creamy grits at Elizabeth's....


 ...or REAL Bagels and Lox at
Artz Bagelz on Magazine St.
WHAT, in New Orleans??!!

Yes! I passed by Artz earlier in 
the week and schleped back
there  by bus for a late breakfast of bagels  and lox and was joined
by owner Kim Zacharczyk, Art's
wife.  Being a "tribe member",
I enjoyed my typical sandwich
in a not so typical bagels and lox town for breakfast at 1 o'clock in
the afternoon.  When Kim asked me my thoughts, I replied it was very
good but the bagel was slightly smaller than what I'm used to in the New Jersey/New York area.  Not complaining, just an observation.  She agreed.  At least it was a REAL tasting bagel and not, God forbid, LENDERS!! Thank you Consumer Reports!  When in New Orleans,
go to Artz Bagelz...take the #11 bus.    click here for a nosh

Artz is art deco on the outside and bright new
on the inside.
In the French Quarter, if you want a traditional Creole breakfast, visit the Old Coffee Pot on St. Peter Street for callas cakes and grits.
Callas cakes, not cake, is described by the waitresses as
fried rice pudding.  Not really rice pudding either, it's balls of rice, held together by something, battered and fried.  It comes with powdered sugar.  Just pour syrup on it and eat it!  It's good, although your cardiologist  may think otherwise.
