Food brings out all the feels! Whether it’s a nostalgic ingredients that takes you down memory lane, or a comforting bite that satiates whatever ails you (emotionally or physically), one thing is tried and true: good food will never let you down.
We hope that what we ate this week makes you feel warm and fuzzy, and if all else fails, then perhaps a bit hungry.
Nutella & Marshmallow Donut at District: Donuts. Sliders. Brew by Very Local NOLA’s Clint Durrett (@verylocalnola)
“Nutella. Marshmallow. Filled. This was my inner fat kid’s dream come true at District. Covered in a coating of Nutella and filled with marshmallow cream — I was living my best life with this in my face.”
Flammenkuchen at Luke by Me (@nola.bites)
Last week after the devastating Saints loss a group of us needed to eat and drink our feelings. So we walked from the Superdome to Luke where we piled up the 75-cent oysters at happy hour, and chased them with French 75s. However, there was one item I was introduced to that I hadn’t had the pleasure of knowing before; the flammenkuchen is a Alsatian onion tarte, with fat chunks of bacon, dripping, Emmenthaler cheese. It didn’t completely strip me from the blues, but it made a good case about it.

Restaurant week is the last chance we get on summer prices and deals before season kicks into gear, and you can tell Liza Smith from @_forkitover_ is a seasoned pro, ’cause she scored one of the best deals with these fluffy crustacean bites!
Soft Shell Crab BLT at Bevi Seafood Co. by @nolafoodgals
We’ve seen this photo make its way through a lot of the local foodie Instagram accounts and it recently resurfaced on @nolafoodgals. Ever since, we’ve been sitting here pondering, “When will Bevi bring this glorious behemoth back?” We’re ready when you are.
Family Meal at Popeyes by @eat.drink.br.nola
We’re feeling this SO HARD! After a hard weekend sometimes all you need is some Popeyes to soak up last night’s regertz. Kudos to @eat.drink.br.nola for going out of the way to plate it and make it look so homey, ’cause we can’t resist and usually eat it out of the bag.
