New, 6 comments

FRENCH QUARTER? Fifty Shades of C-Tates (sexy sumptuous comment round up): "Can you open one in Chicago? " "you COULD open on in MISSOURI... Just saying ;p." "If I go there I expect at least a lap dance from Channing". "I hope you have good vegan and vegetarian options." "Mr. Tatum, if they make "Fifty Shades of Grey" into a movie, can you star in it?" [Facebook]

TREMÉ? "When I was a girl, I remember going to see the motorcade when Franklin Roosevelt came to town. I went to St. Mary's Academy, on Orleans and Royal in those days, and he was going to Antoine's. Back then, when the president came here, you brought him to the best of the best, most fancy restaurant." —Leah Chase, matriarch of Dooky Chase. [Nola.com]

UPTOWN? In the new issue of Garden and Gun, John T. Edge writes, "My New Orleans smell of choice is the collusion of man and beast that hovers in the air at St. James Cheese Company. Set on a leafy stretch of Prytania Street, amid a nexus of culinary goodness untrammeled by tourists, this café–cum–cheese shop stocks a flotilla of blues that pleasantly stink up the place."[Garden&Gun]
