I’ve mostly outgrown the drunken bacchanalia of events like Mardi Gras and St. Patrick’s Day, but I did manage to find my own way to celebrate this afternoon. I met up with a friend for lunch at Rye House and discovered the addition of a special sandwich on the menu for Fat Tuesday: their own take on a muffaletta.
The true New Orleans version of the classic Italian sandwich is usually so big that one couldn’t hope to eat an entire one in one sitting and expect to do anything more than nap for the rest of the day. Thankfully, this was a bit scaled back to a more reasonable size.
