My family and I enjoyed a spectacular trip to Oak Alley Plantation during our trip to New Orleans. Not only did we see amazing scenery and learned a bit of history, we also had a spectacular lunch.
Our server, Sheridan, welcomed us with true Southern hospitality. She offered us a drink and I promptly asked for Oak Alley's famous Mint Julep. I couldn't leave the plantation without one. I was pre-warned it was a strong drink, 3 parts bourbon.... It was in fact strong but very delicious.

Starting off with my meal, I tried the Seafood Au Gratin made with Fresh Louisiana shrimp and crab meat. It was cheesy and delicious. Everyone at the table loved this dish.
My Mom ordered the Louisiana Redfish, blackened and topped with a Pecan Butter. WOW - that pecan butter! This was my first time eating Redfish and certainly will not be my last.
Oak Alley Plantation Cookbook. How could we possibly say no to that?
Gabe and I ordered the chocolate pecan pie, which reminded me of pecan pie and a brownie having a baby. It was hot, gooey, chocolaty goodness.
