Fodor's Review

This old-fashioned grocery store creates authentic muffulettas, a gastronomic gift from the city's Italian immigrants. Made by filling nearly 10-inch round loaves of seeded bread with ham, salami, provolone, Emmentaler cheese, and olive salad, the muffuletta is nearly as popular locally as the po'boy. Central Grocery also sells a vegetarian version. The sandwiches are availalbe in wholes and halves (they're huge—unless you're starving, you'll do fine with a half). Eat

at one of the counters or get your sandwich to go and dine on a bench in Jackson Square or the Moon Walk along the Mississippi riverfront. The Grocery closes at 5 pm.
