muffeletta & napoleon house

One of my favorite spots in New Orleans was Napoleon House in the French Quarter.  It's a 200 year old building who's first occupant, Nicholas Girod, offered the building up to Napoleon for refuge during his exile in 1821.  Napoleon never came, but the name stuck. 

It has one of the BEST sandwiches I've ever had--the Muffuletta (seen above).  The sandwich is huge and in it has: ham, genoa salami, pastrami, swiss cheese, provolone cheese, and homemade italian olive salad in it.  The combination is delicious--all my favorite things in one sandwich!  My mouth is watering just thinking about it.  Went great with a cold Abita Amber on that hot day.  I want to learn how to make the muffuletta olive mix because it was so amazing.  This is a must go in New Orleans, seemed like pretty popular place when I was there.
