AOL Travel Editor’s Review

There isn’t an expansive menu here but diners flock to Central Grocery as it’s the birthplace of the muffuletta, a New Orleans staple invented here in the early 1900s. The sandwich consists of salami, provolone and ham topped with a layer of olive salad (celery, olives, carrot, olive oil and a variety of seasonings). A whole muffuletta is usually enough to feed two people and comes on a hamburger-shaped bun the size of a plate. You can also order a half. Central Grocery has a few other sandwiches and stocks a selection of the things needed to make your own mufalettas at home.
