VBGetaway: New Orleans

February 2016

New Orleans... it’s where my mom grew up, where I went to college and where I got married. It’s one of my favorite places on earth, with too many treasures to mention them all. Here are some of my go-to spots:

Soniat House - Southern Hospitality at it’s best. Don’t miss the coffee and biscuits!


Krewe du Optic - This boutique-slash-café serves up super-chic New Orleans-inspired eyewear and killer coffee, alongside a curated selection of art and design books in their lounge.

Royal Street Antiques and Galleries - Royal Street in New Orleans has been named one of the best street for antiques in the world…for good reason! So many treasures to be found!
