I love these girls. At the risk of sounding like a broken record, we had such a great time in New Orleans. On this particular day, we walked all the way from our hotel near the French Quarter to the Lafayette Cemetery. In heels. Christine and I switched into flats for a bit, but I found that these were actually more comfortable. My flats ended up giving me blisters! Several people told us that the cemetery was within walking distance, and being that we are New Yorkers, we didn’t hesitate to embark on what we thought would be a breezy journey. Put it this way: we could have walked from the Financial District to Columbus Circle and beyond. Let me reiterate: in heels.
Still, we had an amazing time exploring this beautiful city. We managed to get back in time for the Sophomore show, a peek at Jeremy Davenport’s performance at the Ritz Carlton, and dinner at Lilette.
My dinner at Lilette: Bouillabaisse with rouille crouton, and for dessert – nutella custard with fleur de sel, caramel cream and chocolate-hazelnut brittle. I also shared the raw fish plate and the most delicious gnocchi, because calorie counting isn’t my thing. Side note: I have since joined a gym, no joke.
All in all, it was a decadent and delightful day. How’s that for alliteration?
