Wayfare Restaurant

wayfare signAfter visiting Longue Vue House and Gardens, my friend Charlotte and I went to Freret Street to grab a bite to eat. We settled on Wayfare Restaurant. They advertise as having handcrafted foods and spirits.

We started with the Ponchatoula Punch – a daiquiri variation with Bacardi Dragonberry Aperol. It definitely tasted like more but, as it was just barely noon, we restrained ourselves. They also had the Mexican Coca-Cola (made with real sugar) so I ordered two.

For my meal I went with the BL(fg)T – Kurobuta bacon, assorted lettuce greens and fried green tomato. It had a sweet potato habenero hot sauce that offered a nice contrast to the sour of the green tomato. A good sandwich, even if the bread was a little thick.



I took the picture after eating half the sandwich as the pile of house made potato chips was too tall to get a good view of the interior. The chips were light and crisp but could have used a little more salt after coming out of the oil.

The staff was friendly and knowledgeable of the menu and the food came to the table quickly. Definitely worth visiting again – even if only for happy hour and another cocktail!
