On Friday night, since the weather was so wonderful, we ventured over to El Tapatio for some good mexican eats and 2 for 1 margaritas on their spacious outdoor deck. We've eaten at El Tapatio before and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, so we were looking forward to another good meal.
As we headed over to Wells Brothers (aka: Monk's), we weren't quite sure what to expect. I've lived in Tallahassee for a year and a half and I've never heard boo about this place. However, I received a suggestion through email recently and so hubby and I thought we'd check it out (see...if you email me, I will listen!)
For lunch we headed over to Mother's to have an authentic New Orleans po' boy. And once again, we were forced to wait in line. Either we picked all the hot spots or New Orleans was crowded that weekend! And again, the Seating Nazi's were out in full force. Stand in line outside, go inside, stand by the elevator, scoot up, SCOOT UP!
Ahhhh....New Orleans. Such a diverse, cosmopolitan city with more restaurants than anyone could probably ever eat at in a lifetime! Well, for our long Labor Day weekend, hubby and I tried to take in as much as possible. And I when I say "take in", I don't mean sights and sounds, I mean food. Delicious, wonderful, flavorful, savory, succulent FOOD. So, for any of you Tallahasseeians who desire to brave the 6 hour trek across I-10 to New Orleans, I'm writing these blog posts for you.
Friday after work, hubby and I headed over to Barnacle Bill's to satisfy our itch for seafood. While you'd think Tallahassee would have a bunch of wonderful seafood restaurants being so close to the beach and all, that's actually not the case. It's hard to find a good seafood place in town that doesn't drench everything in batter and fry the heck out of it (my stomach flinches just thinking about it!). In my book, Barnacle Bill's seems like it's been imported straight from the shores of the Gulf and transported into the landlocked town of Tallahassee. It's a dive, to be sure, but aren't most good seafood joints? When it comes to seafood, I say, just dump everything on the table and give me a roll of paper towels and I'm good to go!
