Parkway Bakery & Tavern, New Orleans: Roast Beef Po’boy

Fried shrimp, smoked alligator sausage, and straight-up gravy are among the 20-plus variations of po’boy for sale at this Mid-City institution (est. 1911). If you order only one, we say go for the roast beef. Flaky French bread from Leidenheimer bakery is just substantial enough to soak up the juices from tender slices of beef doused with gravy and debris (the chopping block scraps)—though it’s best to eat quickly—and dressed with mayo, tomato, lettuce, and pickles.
