DonRocks Posted April 15, 2014 Share Posted April 15, 2014 My recent trip to NOLA makes me wonder if they have the capacity to serve their subs hot, and if they have an olive tapenade hiding behind the counter...anyone know? I've never tried to get a sub served hot here, but as Katelin notes, they definitely have an olive tapenade. I think I had a muffolata sandwich here before. As I recall it wasn't warm, but they did have the olive salad, it was on a big round bun, but if you are that close why not go to Bayou Bakery? The Italian Store serves something close in style (not quality) to Central Grocery's Muffaletta, and calls it that; Bayou serves a much smaller version of the sandwich, and uses the tongue-in-cheek spelling Muff-a-Lotta. The two sandwiches have surprisingly little in common, considering they're supposed to be takes on the same thing, and although The Italian Store may be closer in spirit to Central Grocery's, Bayou's is much smaller, and uses higher quality ingredients; neither one comes across to me as great. Jake Parrott once brought me the real thing from Central Grocery (for which I am still grateful), and it was great. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
