Whether it is a date, a business meeting, or entertaining out-town-Northerners who want the “Big Easy” experience without the 100% humidity and FEMA, Huey’s is a great choice at all hours of the day or night. Here, you get the accessible Creole/Cajun food of South Louisiana right on Peachtree Street. Order some sides of spicy boudin sausage, “mudbugs,” étouffée, or “dirty rice.” Try a tangy muffaletta sandwich or a fried oyster Po’ Boy sandwich and wash it down with an Abita Turbo Dog. But—this is my rule the day I become Good King Mark—thou shall not leave without having a big plate of beignets; doughy, slightly yeasty fried doughnuts covered with an inch thick dusting of powdered sugar. Paired with the required cup of chicory coffee (chicory is the root of the endive plant and is the de rigueur additive to coffee in N’awlins), you have the specialty of Café Du Monde—that city’s coffee H.Q.—without the heartbreaking carnage of Katrina. Message to the boys: taking a date here morning or night to enjoy coffee and beignets is exceedingly romantic . . . even if you are a lousy lover. Message to the girls: Eat 2 plates; me likes ‘dem curves; they don’t call N’awlins “Fat City” for nothing.
