Venice

In Venice Tasso's echoes are no more,
And silent rows the songless gondolier;
Her palaces are crumbling to the shore,
And music meets not always now the ear:
Those days are gone--but Beauty still is here;
States fall, arts fade--but Nature doth not die,
Nor yet forget how Venice once was dear,
The pleasant place of all festivity, The revel of the earth, the masque of Italy!

-Lord Byron.

Peche

Lately have had a few CBD lunches at Peche. It's been reliably great food, quick service, and a reasonable price. It's in the old American Coffee building.

Their specialty is oysters from certain areas in Louisiana. The areas that are on the saltier side of the brackish scale actually taste briney. It's also one of the few places I know to buy the experimental off bottom oysters the LSU Ag Center is trying.

The shrimp roll is good as are the Brussels sprouts (it's a Link restaurant).
