Central Grocery is a small Italian grocery store in the French Quarter in New Orleans. I was down there this week for a conference and this was on my 'NOLA Bucket List' as this is the HOME of the original Muffaletta sandwich. These beauties are stuffed with cheese, salamis and most importantly: olive salad. I've had plenty of Muffalettas and I don't know if it was because I was eating this one in the store where it all began - but this was the *best* sandwich of it's kind that I've ever had.
The store itself isn't much to look at. It really is a grocery store with canned/jarred products everywhere.
