In Love: Jacques-Imo's

This week Courtney has written about her picks for New Orleans must-see’s, and Eddie asked for tips of places to go, things to see in the Big Easy. Reading both of those posts had me missing New Orleans and thinking about my fave, Jacques-Imo’s. This will be quick since I’m a little busy this week, but I can’t go to New Orleans without a fun night filled with cajun food and lots of drinking at Jacques-Imo’s. Tables take forever to come by, and although the food is good, it’s not the very very best of what New Orleans has to offer. However, it’s so New Orleans, and I love it. If you have to wait 3 hours for a table, it’s no big deal, just join the street party and order some mojitos! You can have the Fried Grits & Stuffed Shrimp late night!

The owner, Jacques Leonardi, is always pacing around outside half drunk, coming up to your table to flirt a little, bringing you a special drink, chatting with you like you’ve been best friends for years. It’s that kinda treatment that makes New Orleans and Jacques-Imo’s unique. If you’re going down south…don’t miss it!

Me & my sis Kate with Jacques (the night before my wedding)! So fun!
