Italian Restaurant
$$
“You are in New Orleans, and probably are going to head to Frenchmen St at some point for live music. Head down a little early, and get a table at Adolfo’s. You might have to wait (only seats about 15 people), but don’t worry: the Creole Italian food is amazing. But whatever your order, make sure to get the Ocean Sauce on top: Crawfish, Crab Meat, Shrimp and plenty of butter. (The restaurant is tricky to find, but its located above the Apple Barrel Bar. If you have to wait, you can go into the Apple Barrel and listen to live music). ”
