Grab a muffaletta and sit by the river
The Central Grocery muffaletta is worth the wait in line. Although there many iterations of this classic New Orleans sando, which combines a farmyard of meat (mortadella, ham, and salami), cheese (provolone and/or mozzarella), and olive salad (marinated olives, celery, cauliflower, and carrot), Central Grocery is the standard bearer. A whole muffaletta will set you back $17.95 plus tax, and it’s more than enough for two to share. You’ll get it wrapped up, and just head across Decatur toward the Mississippi River and then turn right and head up till you find the perfect place to sit.
