Central Grocery and Deli
Specialty market & muffuletta vendor
French Quarter · $
Though it may not be much to look at, this petite, circa-1906 French Quarter grocer is famous for its muffaletta: a dinner plate–sized Italian sandwich piled with ham, mortadella, salami, provolone, Swiss cheese and olive salad, all on Sicilian sesame bread. Guests stand in the line that snakes through the old-school store, order the sandwich and eat it at the back counter.

Such a nice food market to go shopping there... it’s a good deli with many spices and unique things for cooking... it reminds me the old grocery stores of America... one guy suggest us to go there and have mufulletta sandwich... he said it is great... and sure he was right... such a great taste it has but it become better with an old fashion soda drink...I recommend this place 100%... worths a visit if you want something different...

Their famous Muffuletta was good. I would say that it's probably not worth trying if you're from any place with easy access to Italian delis or sandwich shops.

The food they serve there is mind blowing! The store it's self can often get crowded becuase it's the home of one of the most famous foods in New Orleans but it's to be expected. It is delicious!
