Fleaing On Friday: Lucullus

Patrick Dunne’s shop, Lucullus on Chartres Street in New Orleans is a visual as well as a gastronomic delight.  The shop has been there specializing in “culinary antiques” for thirty years, interestingly, an antique shop has operated out of the location for over a century!

On this day there was even a camera crew shooting for a magazine article.
