The “Carnival Cocktail” for brunch at @josephineestelle inside @aceneworleans in the Warehouse District, conveniently located near the parade routes. 💜💛💚⚜️This is a wonderful “New Orleans osteria,” blending rustic Italian cooking with American South ingredients and flavors. We also got the buttermilk biscuit plate with mortadella, pimento cheese, jam, and house pickles; the asparagus scramble with green garlic, heart of palm, chard, ricotta, and agrumato; and the campanelle with crab, brassica, fennel, and fumet. Cocktails: Carnival Cocktail—brandy, rum, amaretto, and butter extract. Dark Hearts—bourbon, Fernet Vallet.
