Muffuletta is the quintessential New Orleans sandwich paying homage to the Italian immigrants who first opened groceries along the riverfront of the French Market in New Orleans. It is a hearty sandwich of cured meats and cheese, slathered with a tangy olive salad dressing and piled onto a sesame-crusted Italian loaf. The muffuletta is heated to intensify the flavors of the ingredients.
Red Beans & Rice
Napoleon House’s Red Beans and Rice is the perfect version of a New Orleans classic, traditionally served on Mondays. Their rich and flavorful red beans are slow-cooked with locally sourced vegetables, Creole smoked sausage, and spices, and served over long grain rice.
Few places capture the essence of New Orleans like the Napoleon House, a 200-year-old landmark that’s as casual and unique as its French Quarter surroundings. The deeply patinated walls, uneven tile floors, and old wooden bar hollowed by countless Pimm’s Cups speak to its many decades of service and hospitality. Owned and operated since 1914 by the Impastato family, and Ralph Brennan since 2015, Napoleon House’s traditions and tastes are revered and preserved by veteran chef Chris Montero, whose Creole roots reach back about as far as Napoleon House itself.
