1. Point well take and no disrespect meant. Displaced NO residents.

2. That's the NY spirit -- don't let the door hit you in the butt on the way out!

Yep!

Eta: I don't think that people are trying to be negative when they use the term. It isn't a huge stretch from seeking refuge to being a refugee. (Vocabulary wise) educating rather than snipping would be a better way to explain it.

Looks like we may have worked things out.

One thing is for sure, we NOLA people are passionate about our city.

P.S. I've never even heard of basil on a salad before this. Good thing, cause I hate the stuff!

Born and raised here. Never had basil on a salad.

I used the term refugees and I'm on NO's side! We had plenty of NO residents move up here and they often refered to themselves as refugees. Or did at the time at least.

That aside, I used to think that blackened whatever was burnt too. Whatever it was, I never liked it. However give me some good jambalaya or shrimp creole or just some simple red beans and rice (with proper andouille sausage please) and I'm thrilled. Add in some good po-boys and barbecued shrimp and I might never go home.

It is possible to find well priced meals all over New Orleans. It's also true that a person can spend a lot. Just like WDW, it's good to research these things.

There was *nothing* blackened in NOLA when I was growing up in the area.

That just seems to be a technique that Paul Prudomme dreamed up. I don't care for it personally. It's not actually burned, it's the seasoning, then being seared. Just give me some of Mike Andersen's fried crawfish, bisque, or gumbo, and I'm a happy camper. Then, I'll finish off later with some beignets and coffee at Cafe Du Monde. Yum, Yum, yummy -- drool!! I made shrimp gumbo today with a dark, rich roux.

Someone in a post mentioned muffalettas - now that is one good sandwich!

Yep, NOLA is lots more than Bourbon St. The French Quarter is beautiful, the Garden District, and much more. It's a very unique city - none like it.

We stayed several nights at a hotel on Bourbon street.
Never again. We literately had to climb over the bodies from drunk people sleeping on the road. Not the curb but the road.
A six in the morning the shop keepers hose them away whit water. Those that are still on th street after this "party" are removed by the high pressure water hoses from the street cleaners also around six am.

Just to add that those people were not tourists but the " Couleur Locale " to put it mildly.
All this and the advise from the hotel manager not to go outside after dark made us decide not to go back.

Chef Paul was one of my first loved cookbooks. Not blackened stuff but red beans and rice. And jambalaya. Totally unheard of in my life before that.

HAPPY MARDIGRAS!!!!!!!!!! I'm on my way out of here for a Loooong day. Gotta love New Orleans.

P.S. I normally eat very cheaply. But, I know where to go and it doesn't include any place in the Quarter.

I have been to NOLA 3X. I find the architecture to be unique and beyond intriguing.

How people cannot appreciate the city for its buildings alone amazes me I think it is a beautiful city.

Otherwise, this thread is making me very, very homesick for a city I love and probably won't get back to anytime soon.
I'm glad someone is thankful I mentioned the basil on the Greek salad.

I had never heard of basil being sprinkled liberally on a Greek salad before either. I LOVE Greek salads and have had a LOT of them in many different restaurants, in Michigan and other states as well, and New Orleans is the FIRST time it's EVER happened. I wish it would have stated on the menu that they add basil, because THEN I would have politely asked them to leave it off. But as I said before, I don't send food back so I ate what I could of it. Never thought it would actually make me sick tho.

And that same restaurant (the Gazebo Cafe, by the French Market) also sprinkled the basil on FRENCH FRIES! I just find that weird.

Go to the Gazebo Cafe and you would.

I think it was particularly bad timing to post such a thread title...Happy Mardi Gras to all!!! Wish I was headed to St. Charles right now.....But to respond back to the originally posed question, I, LOVE New Orleans and love Louisiana. Natives of both are passionate about their culture and where they live, not "sensitive" in my opinion. I am currently counting down the days until it's Springtime on the fairgrounds, and I'll be listening to Dr. John and John Mayer while eating Crawfish Monica. And it won't bother me if everyone there is from New Orleans.

For those interested, this is a really well done video from 2010 when the Saints were headed to the Superbowl. In case it doesn't open, it's from ESPN and is called "The Soul of New Orleans." http://espn.go.com/video/clip?id=4878457

Paul Prudomme is a good chef, but was just pointing out that *blackened* anything is not south LA culture - that was his invention that *he* started calling cajun - to my knowledge it was not native to the area at all before him. If so, maybe some of my fellow south *Louisianians* can help me out.

Can't beat Louisiana style red beans, sausage and rice either. It's a staple with us and it's on my menu for Thursday this week.
