It’s that time again: New Orleans’ favorite food festival honoring our indigenous sandwich is back. This year, local craft breweries have joined forces with local chefs to compliment the contents of the Liedenheimers.
It all takes place on Oak Street. The old Carrollton shopping main-street of our parents and grandparent’s heyday may be gone, but there is currently a renaissance in flux. Meisel’s Fabrics and Hasse’s were some of the last holdouts of the old Oak, and Hasse’s remains, still supplying smocking and monograms to Uptown’s youngest. However, the new Oak is more about food, and the natural progression of the Oak revival as restaurant corridor has been the Oak Street Po-Boy Festival.
