I still can’t quite figure out how to fit in my holiday activities along with blogging – it seems that sometimes if I have some free time, napping trumps blogging. Clearly, I have my priorities in order!
Anyway, on Friday, I met a dear friend in the French Quarter and we went to the Roosevelt Hotel for lunch. We ate at Teddy’s Cafe, a cute yet sophisticated place to get everything from sweets and coffee to a full lunch. And it looks out over the main hall of the hotel, which is decorated with branches dripping with white lights. And there were carolers!
If you live in New Orleans, it’s worth stopping by Teddy’s in the Roosevelt to see the whimsical gingerbread village, complete with renditions of many well-loved New Orleans landmarks. There’s the Camellia Grill . . .
We had a lovely, relaxing lunch – the café was quiet and the oyster salad and grown-up grilled cheese are both delicious! While we were there they were trading the breakfast pastries in the case for beautiful chocolate truffles, so it’s a great place to have a coffee or tea and have something sweet too. If you need a holiday treat, I highly recommend it.
