I’ve been on the road a lot this year, so I wanted to come someplace really New Orleans. I’ve been coming here since the 1970s, since I was a young man. Napoleon House has the best warm muffuletta in the city and it’s a cold day, so I wanted a warm muff.
How does their muffuletta compare to Central Grocery’s?
The big difference is that these are heated, and a bit smaller, which I don’t mind.
How often do you come here?
If I have friends in town, I come. It’s a place I like to meet people. The bar is never too loud. You’re not going to be able to not have a conversation. I love coming here when I’m in this part of town, or I go out of my way to get here. They play classical music, and I just love the ambiance.
