Parkway Bakery & Tavern
The local take on a French bread sandwich—the Po Boy—is an omnipresent feature on local menus, but few places rise above mediocrity in their offerings. The name that regularly surfaces when people ask where they should go is this Mid City joint, where the menu is devoted almost entirely to the Po Boy. Expect lines at lunchtimes, then take your sandwich to sit at one of the unpretentious wooden benches and feast on the wonders as bread meets roast beef and gravy or fried oyster, or some seasonal special that can't be missed. The Tavern serves up a good selection of local ales.
