“retaining much of its old world market feel”
Central Grocery is a small, old-fashioned Italian-American grocery store with a sandwich counter located at 923 Decatur Street, in the French Quarter of New Orleans, Louisiana. It was founded in 1906 by Salvatore Lupo, a Sicilian immigrant. He operated it until 1946 when he retired and his son-in-law Frank Tusa took over the operation. Today it is owned by Salvatore T. Tusa, Salvatore's grandson, and two cousins. The store was one of many family owned, neighborhood grocery stores during the early 20th century, when the French Quarter was still predominantly a residential area.
Though tourists are more common in Central now, it has retained much of its old world market feel.
Try the muffaletta!
Loved the Muffaletta and the atmosphere!
The birthplace of the muffuletta. The sandwich is huge-- One of them fed four of us. All of the ingredients are top-notch and it's sooooo delicious!
