Central Grocery and Deli is unprecedented when it comes to Muffaletta sandwiches. Visiting this deli is one tradition that should be required of every visitor to the city. Locals have been frequenting this much-loved spot since 1906. Located in the middle of the French Quarter, Central Grocery and Deli prides itself as an old-fashioned grocery store and deli offering a wide variety of gourmet foods, including their famed Italian Olive Salad. And if you can’t get to Nola, they will ship their olive salad to you.
* Editor’s note: By Nancy Radlauer, Editor.InboundMagazine@gmail.com; I always keeps a few jars of Central Grocery’s Olive Salad in my pantry! And I do have them shipped. The third-generation owners of this gem have continued to provide the same quality and service the store has been known for since its beginning; a timeless taste of New Orleans.
