#1,921 Stanley.

A couple years ago Ben and I took a spontaneous trip down to New Orleans for his birthday, and we had brunch at Stanley on Jackson Square. It was so delicious—I’ve been craving it ever since, so this morning(ish), I convinced the group to walk down to Quarter and endure the 1.5 hour wait so I could try it again.




And it was worth every minute we had to wait.


Aaaaaaand Gwyneth Paltrow was eating a few tables away then she and her boyfriend got up to leave, all but bumping into Jim trying to get past him, but I was the ONLY person at our table who saw her. And I was whispering furiously because she was still in earshot: “THAT’S GWYNETH PALTROW! GWYNETH PALTROOOOW!!!!!!!” but none of these goobers understood what I was saying until she was standing outside the window.

I will tell people everyday for the rest of my life that I am close, warm, personal friends with crazy ole Gwyneth Paltrow.

But seriously, I thought she didn’t eat anything but raw, wet almonds. What the heck was she doing up in Stanley? #baconfat #cheese

  1. My husband is living in Nola while I finish up school in Jackson, so I get a little vacation every couple of weeks when I go see him. We try to visit a new restaurant every weekend I'm down. Looks like we definitely need to try Stanley! So funny, bc I haven't even heard of it. It's amazing how many wonderful places are packed into one city! You're making my heart ache for my second home. Hope you had a great visit! -Erin R. ❤️

  2. It looks like you guys had a fun weekend in New Orleans! It brought back so many memories from our trip last year. I second your recommendation for Mona Lisa's. We absolutely loved it. Thanks for letting us know about it too!

    I bought that same dress a couple of weeks ago, ha! I love the linen fabric.
