The day after the St. Patty's day festivities we slept in a bit - then headed out for brunch/lunch at a restaurant on Magazine St. called Ignatius Eatery. I was excited to try it - mostly because it is named after the main character in the novel "A Confederacy of Dunces". Most people read this book in High School - I read it last year when I borrowed it from Rafe.
At brunch I almost never order lunch food - I'm a strictly eggs at brunch kind of gal....but it was already past 1p, and the po'boy's on the menu caught my eye. Mimosa again in hand, I was ready to see what these sandwiches were all about. I ordered the roast beef po-boy and was not disappointed!
Coming from Boston - where Kelly's Roast Beef is all the rage, I was expecting roast beef cold cuts in my sandwich and was delighted to find POT ROAST in my delicious french bread instead. The bread had a thin layer of mayonnaise, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles and gravy....GRAVY. The meat was tender and flavorful, and very well seasoned. I know what I'll be doing next time I have leftover pot roast!
The food at Ignatius was by no means fancy or upscale in any way....but my goodness, did they exceed expectations. I couldn't have been happier with my meal if I had eaten at a 5 star restaurant.
