Eating New Orleans {Auction House Market}

Trying new places to eat is always fun in New Orleans. There are always so many new restaurants opening on a weekly basis. Opened earlier this year, J and I finally were able to try the offerings at Auction House Market.

The Market's lower level features a sleekly-designed, multi-vendor food hall with ten chef-driven concepts. Sip on coffee or a cocktail, and enjoy breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

I dined on the choice of two empanadas (chirizo Mexicana and mushroom/cheese) from Empanola. Both were delicious. It was accompanied by a side salad of mixed greens, craisins, sunflower seeds, feta cheese, and green goddess dressing. The meal was presented on a wooden board. I appreciate the presentation.
J dined on a crab salad and seafood gumbo from Elysian Seafood.

The space is airy, open and well-appointed. Vendors include: Aloha Lei, Alpha, Coast Roast, Elysian Seafood, Empanola, Happy Jaxx, Mac & Moon, Sola Deli, Tava, The Mayhaw.

Auction House Market is located at 801 Magazine Street across the street from Peche in the CBD (Central Business District).

Auction House Market, y'all!

The Acorn Cottage {Backyard}

You asked for it. I delivered. Here is the backyard of the Acorn Cottage. It is really a blank slate, a patio with furniture surrounded by trees and leaves as well as an 8 ft. fence.

I envision a pool with an arbor. I can see it. Time will tell.....

Backyard, y'all!

The Acorn Cottage {The House is Empty}

I thought the previous owner would never leave, but yes, he's finally moved out. The previous owner has lived in the cottage for over 40 years. I am certain that he has lots of memories in the charming home. J and I closed on the house on May 11 and allowed the previous owner to stay in the home until June 11. Ain't we nice?

This is how the house looked on the morning of June 12. It is a blank slate. Let the renovations begin.

An Empty Home, y'all!
