Here's a little recap of our day in New Orleans on Saturday. The first half of the day was at B's cousin's commencement. Honestly, it was the best graduation I have been to. The main ceremony lasted about 2 hours. The Dali Lama was the keynote speaker, 2 rock 'n roll hall of famers got honorary doctorates and decided to play an impromptu 15 minute concert at the end of the ceremony, and there were fireworks! The event was held in the Superdome which added to the New Orleans vibe!
After some relaxation and some photos, the 5 of us went out for dinner to Martinique Bistro. If you are ever in New Orleans I highly recommend this place for dinner. You will need reservations in order to get a table on the weekend. Here is what I had:
starter: Louisiana blueberry salad with Maine lobster
dinner: pork tenderloin medallions with asparagus and goat cheese grits
dessert: corn cake strawberry shortbread
I cannot stop raving about this place! We definitely plan to go back again... hopefully for brunch someday. It was a great day spent with family in a city we love.
