On Sunday, a wait at Alembic asked what the name of the cocktail “Vieux Carre” meant.
I started to explain that it meant something like, “old quarter,” or, “old square” in French, and referred to the oldest section of the city of New Orleans.
Brandon pushed his glasses down his nose, hunched his back a bit and said, “Man, no, this is an ‘old square.’”
I laughed and said, “I am totally THE Old Square”.
He didn’t disagree.
