We asked someone on the street where to go for a good (and reasonable) lunch. He directed us to the Central Grocery, which is the home of the muffuletta (I had never heard of this before today). I never would have walked into this place, it is so small and “hole-in-the-wall-ish.” But, wow. What a great lunch! If you get a chance, check it out!
Very narrow store. This is almost the entire width.
A local favorite (and later I found out it is mentioned in many guides to New Orleans).
Bragging rights as originator of the muffuletta sandwich.
The sandwich is about 10 inches in diameter.
That sandwich was shared by 4 people (just so you get a bit of perspective on the size!)
