We took a red eye flight leaving at 11:30 from LAX. Mike drove us to the airport early. It was a beautiful sunset that night. A good omen that the days ahead would be perfect and they were.
We relax poolside at our charming hotel "Place d'Armes" located in the heart of the French Quarter. A perfect location and a lovely hotel.
Muffaletto sandwiches at this place: The Central Grocery store. Look at the lines!
Back at the hotel we can now check into our room and relax until our 6:30 reservation at Antoine's featuring a special 175th anniversary 5 course menu of classic dishes. Mmmm we are ready!
A festive way to end our first day in New Orleans.
