Ancora, in the recently refurbished New Freret district in Uptown. Talk about energy, this is one little neighborhood to hang in. Several good eating places, one specializing in cocktails, Cure, who pay homage to traditional libations. I first fell in love with the area years ago when we stepped into the wonderful time machine, Gautreau's, one of my favorite restaurants on earth.
Ancora and pizza. And an all Italian, make that, an all Campanian wine list. Heaven, what I, rather, we, have to do to get folks in places to just put Italian wines on the list? And these folks have the stones to do only Campanian wines? Note: ( i.e., folks I have been talking to for years) it's not all about the mighty dollar.It is about passion and perfection. Chapeau, Ancora amici
All this while trying to stay on my Weightwatcher allocation of 36 points a day? Thank the Lord for bonus points, I have not yet strayed. But I got pretty close to the devil and the fire, mamma.

Lots more to come, on the wine trail in Italy, err, New Orleans…
