via Gambit, a new option for late-night carry out in the FQ:
Mmmmmmmmmm, late night sweets. Txs for the info!
The store is in the site of the former Mary's Hardware Store almost adjacent to the Clover Grill in the 900 block of Bourbon. I posted about it Oct 8, 2010. My friends say they have stock their shelves with more products and seem to be doing well. They don't open til 10 AM.
Interesting SoDak, the blurb made it sound like it just recently happened. On another note, when I went to Stanley about two weeks ago, they were working on the space next door. I asked the staff about it and they said they were going use primarily as a take-out operation. They didn't know about the hours, but watch that space.
BTW, Ms. 61, who has visited all the states and provinces, has paid a visit to your Corn Palace. Neat looking place...although I think I'll wait 'til summer to visit!
we paid a visit to Candy Bar (coz I was so disappointed I couldn't get a piece of German Chocolate Cake at Jagerhaus:) and took a couple pieces of carrot cake back to our hotel room. We dropped them off and went to El Gato for a margarita (or 2 or 3...) When we got back, didn't feel like having cake, so we shoved it in the drawer. (It's wrapped in plastic) The next morning, it was still so moist, it was like it was fresh baked! A delicious "breakfast"! They make good stuff!!!
Their sandwiches are good also, I miss running down to Mary's for anything I needed in the apt., but Candy Bar's sweets console me!
SKT, Are you going to be in town the weekend of May 13-14? What are the chances we could get you to our Meet Up?
cmon... this is new orleans
closing at midnight is not late night! ;)
Went to the Candy Bar twice on our last visit and the red velvet cake it do DIE for love love love it!
Watch out for this place. Friday night, September 2, 2011, I watched the cook/chef make three sandwiches and not once did he wash his hands. He prepared the food with bare ungloved hands. This included slicing cheese, handling deli meat, and chopping up an onion for a chili dog with his hands. There were also a million flies around the kitchen area.
I don't care how much someone washes their hands with soap and water ... handling food with bare hands is just nasty. Does Louisiana have any health standards in the area of food handling? I don't know. If they do, this place was in violation. If they don't, then shame on Louisiana.
On the up side, they do carry hundreds of quirky products and off-brands you won't see anywhere else. Kind of pricey, overall, on the specialty items.
I am really surprised to read this Bgumguy. I have watched sandwiches made there too, and never saw anything that upset me. We have gotten some really good stuff there. In addition to the really good sandwiches, the lasagna was really good and the sweets are too. Love shopping for fun stuff to take home, (like flavored dried crickets-the grandkids got a kick out of them), and tabsco chocolate. I wonder if a call to the manager might not be more the way to go than health dept. My impression is that they really try to run a nice place. Any business can make a bad hire and I would think giving them an opportunity to address it might be more helpful.
