It’s been 4 years since Emeril Lagasse and friends launched Boudin, Bourbon, and Beer in support and benefiting the Emeril Lagasse Foundation. Since it’s my first year attending, I thought it would be perfectly fitting to launch this site with BBB 2014 as the inaugural post. First and foremost, I’ll say that it’s quite possibly one of the best events I’ve attended this year, and because of it’s sheer impact, maybe ever.
Very much the Katz of New Orleans, Stein’s shines neighborhood deli with a glimmer of intrigue. Walking through the sticker laden doors, regulars and newcomers line up along the straight and narrow countertop, rocking back and forth in front of the deli cases under the sweet spell of indecision. Trying to decide what sandwich you are going to have is not the only test. Among the local standards, Stein’s offers a myriad of beers, sodas, teas, ginger ales, and one squeeze!
