Central Grocery

Opened by Italian immigrant Salvatore Lupo in 1906, this third-generation Italian grocery and deli counter is famous for creating the muffaletta. Located on Decatur Street in the midst of New Orleans’ French Quarter, the shelves are filled with imported pasta and olive oil as the aroma of cured pork and garlic wafts through the doors. The muffalettas are layered with Genoa salami, Holland ham, mortadella, the grocery’s proprietary olive salad, Swiss and provolone cheese on an 8-inch circle of bread. While you wait in line, consider whether to add a side of marinated mushrooms, stuffed artichokes, olive salad or fresh Italian salad. Bonus: Central Grocery carries tons of canned, fresh and dried Italian goodies ready to take home.
