There were a whole gaggle of folks arriving in NOLA for Tulane graduation, bringing with them the kind of appetites you develop on planes these days where no food is available. So the graduate suggested we all meet at Tracey's, which has been a local watering hole since 1949. It began life just down the street in a locale known as "Parasol's" but moved to the present location at Third and Magazine a few years later, bringing both the old-fashioned feeling of the original and a large collection of parasols which now adorn the ceiling.

Tracey's does have a full bar, and produces salads and a variety of "sides" which reflect the tastes of the clientele, but by far the most popular items on the menu are the 8" po'boy sandwiches. All those out-of-towners chowed down, and a good time was had by all, washed down by big tankards of Abita.

Favorite Dish: The po'boys are simply divine. I tried three different ones -- shrimp, "erster", and their signature roast beef -- and I think the shrimp was my favorite, but they were ALL excellent.
