Our next night in New Orleans we ventured out to Mid-City to get some po’ boys at Liuzza’s by the Track. There is actually another Liuzza’s in Mid-City, but as near as we could tell, they’re not related. Two people named Liuzza, both opening restaurants? Only in New Orleans.
Niles and I both got their signature dish, the BBQ Shrimp po’ boy. It was amazingly good, but it sure wasn’t what I would have called barbecue. It was copious amounts of shrimp, stuffed into a giant french roll, drenched in a savory sauce that was… garlicky? Peppery? But by no means barbecue, at least no style of barbecue sauce I’ve ever had. Still, very tasty!
