The New New Orleans??

I don't know what it is of late, but since Hurricane Katrina, it seems that Destin Florida has become dotted with fixtures of New Orleans.  The first was Ruth's Chris Steak House, but that's always been a bit of a chain restaurant.  But then came Acme Oyster House in Sandestin, then Commander's Palace last year, and this year the arrival of Pat O'Brien's and the newest eatery, The Camellia Grill.

I kid you not, the old eatery on Carrollton has begun to spread out, and this was the first place to open up.  They even kept the white linen and the same general design that made the old place so nice to visit.  I haven't made a visit to the new eatery yet, but I'm planning that for this weekend, barring any problems.

Not that Destin can be any better than New Orleans... but it is nice to have some tastes of the old place.  We even had a place in Navarre that had New Orleans-style po-boys, complete with French Bread from the city (it wasn't Leidenheimer's) instead of the usual hoagie style bread.

Speaking of NOLA, I read a post here on neworleans that McKenzie's has reopened on Harrison Avenue here. Buttermilk Drops for all! :)
