|The menu board at Bud's Broiler, City Park Ave.|
Frau Schmitt and I live in New Orleans. We do go to the French Quarter. We do go to Frenchmen Street. We go to plenty of other places, too. Plenty of them; the kind of places the Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) doesn't like to discuss. Don't ask me why.
If you get a map from the CVB, it shows the Quarter and the Garden District. It even shows Freret Street for some reason. It doesn't show our neighborhood. Off the top of my head, I can think of four museums in our neighborhood and, oh, maybe 20 restaurants, all of them very good. There are also five B&Bs just on Esplanade Avenue. Yet, our neighborhood doesn't rate a mention on the official map. Oh well. More for us.
Bud's Broiler is located on the City Park Avenue side of City Park. It's about a mile and a half from our house and it's open 24 hours. A 24-hour hamburger stand that sells beer---and I don't mean just root beer. New Orleans is like that. It's full of surprises.
The last time I went to Bud's Broiler, I noticed the prices had gone up. A Number 1 costs $3.05. Try getting a charcoal grilled hamburger for three bucks in the French Quarter.
Hey, look! Here's a link to a review of Bud's Broiler! I'm not saying it's great. I'm only saying I like it. Frau Schmitt is a little less enamored with the place. I always say I want to go to Bud's for my birthday and she gently suggests I choose somewhere else. You might wonder where I choose instead. For that, you'll have to ask me over breakfast. It will give us something else to talk about.
Until that morning,
À votre santé,
