Pecan Pralines @ Rib Room
Pralines per se are best made by praline shops like Aunt Sally’s and Laura’s. But quite a few restaurants make them for one reason or another. A table near the maitre d’s stand at the Rib Room always has a plate of pecan pralines, to which you may help yourself. Free! The plate of pralines depletes rapidly on Fridays at lunch, a big day for the Rib Room and its regular customers, going back decades.
Rib Room. French Quarter: 621 St Louis St. 504-529-7045.
