The longest po-boy in New Orleans’ history is coming to the French Quarter!
Come join us on Friday, November 3, in the 500 block of Royal Street for a supersized po’boy (approximately 350 feet long) created by three of the city’s most iconic food brands – Blue Plate Mayonnaise, Leidenheimer Baking Company, and Chisesi Brothers Meat Packing Co.
What is a Po-Boy?
It may be National Sandwich Day, but New Orleanians know that a Po-Boy is not just a sandwich…it’s an experience. A Po-Boy starts with good French Bread like the bread found at Leidenheimer. The bread is crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Now, what you put on the inside is limitless…ham and cheese, fried oyster or shrimp, hot sausage, and even hot roast beef with gravy. If you can image the perfect, Po-Boy it can be created just for you. After you have filled your Po-Boy with meat, seafood or another combination, it must be “dressed” which means adding lettuce, tomato, pickles, mayo, mustard and more.
For The National Sandwich Day, Blue Plate, Leidenheimer and Chisesi Brothers are joining forces to create the largest Po-boy. Stop by this New Orleans Po-Boy extravaganza for a piece. If you want to learn more about the history of New Orleans and this culinary marvel, step into the courtyard at The Historic New Orleans Collection, located at 533 Royal Street, for a free presentation on the history of New Orleans’ most beloved sandwich.
Presentations will commence at 12:15PM and 1PM.
