In 1978 I started traveling for the company I worked for and my first trips were to a one of our plants outside of Louisville, KY. My boss took me to the New Orleans House which back then had about every type of seafood imaginable set out. My favorites were the Alaskan king crab legs. Man, they were huge and hot with dishes of butter to dip the meat in...oh God was it good! My boss watched me devour platters of food my first night there and said “I think you’re gonna take to this travel thing!” and he was correct. I was 27 years old and that trip was also this small town hick’s first airline flight so it was all pretty cool. The “main course” followed the buffet and was either a filet mignon or huge whole lobster and I learned early on to order the steak because it was smaller. I’d been to another smorgasbord my Dad liked near home but it was pretty mediocre and not even 1% as nice as the New Orleans House. I have no idea if it’s still open and/or still good, but it sure was then...and I shun buffets if I have any say in the matter.
