The Court of Two Sisters, New Orleans

The verdict is finally in -- I got matched to Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine for my dietetic internship! This is one of the final and most crucial steps to becoming a Registered Dietitian. So to celebrate, I will be posting about one of my favorite places that visited when I was last there in March during my first year of graduate school.

If you all follow my blog, you know how obsessed I am with New Orleans: the food (beignets at Cafe du Monde, po-boys and muffulettas, fried chicken at Willie Mae's), the culture, the people and all that jazz. I'm surprised I haven't written about The Court of Two Sisters yet because it was my absolute first meal in New Orleans ever, and it remains to be my favorite... along with almost every other meal I had down in Louisiana.

We went for their famous jazz brunch and were seated in their picturesque courtyard. Like everything in the French Quarter, The Court of Two Sisters gives off the aura of ageless wonder with French colonial / Creole architectural design. Compound that with the food and live music, and you're sent back to the late 19th century. It really is beautiful, captivating, and inspiring all at once.

The buffet is a generous all you can handle of hot and cold Louisiana and New Orleans Creole delicacies: boiled crawfish, spicy shrimp etouffee, creamy turtle soup, flavorful jambalaya, fresh ceviche, southern BBQ ribs, buttery corn bread, and so much more. The dessert selection is just as impressive with everything from banana fosters and bread pudding to pecan pie and king cake. Are you drooling yet?

I'm still in shock that I'm moving down to Louisiana, but I can't wait to savor all the culture. And obviously ALL the food.
