New Orleans


Central Grocery

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.
