The Central Grocery, on 923 Decatur Street, is not only famous for their Muffuletta sandwich it is actually the home of the muffuletta.
Many consider this family owned and operated grocery deli as a must visit while visiting New Orleans.
Muffuletta: It's not a sandwich; it's a meal packed into a pizza-sized Italian bun.
The calories don't count when
you're having fun: salami, ham, and provolone lavished with olive relish.
Go to the source: Central Grocery on
Decatur Street, an Italian import store where the sandwich was invented about a century ago to satisfy hungry
Sicilian stevedores on the nearby docks.
