I’m a Sangria junkie, particularly at #WineOClock. Mrs. YatPundit, not so much. On a recent trip to Slice on St. Charles Avenue, the drink special was white sangria. I was all about it. Wife was her usual skeptical self. I told her we could easily get her a glass of something if she didn’t like it, so we went for it.
Citrus-y Sangria for #WineOClock
This sangria was more citrus-y than some, which turned out to be a good thing. Mrs. YatPundit preferred that to the dryer variants out there, as well as the ones that rely more on apples and berries. Every place that does sangria has their own little twist or take on the beverage.
Slice Pizzeria on St. Charles Avenue is a favorite of ours, not just for #WineOClock, either. It’s got two things going for it. First, the pizza is good. Second, it’s easy to get to from #themetrys. All you do is take I-10 into town, get off at the St. Charles exit off the Pontchartrain Expressway (heading up to the Crescent City Connection Bridge). Take a right on St. Charles Avenue and go down to Martin Luther King Blvd. It’s usually easy to park in that first block of MLK off St. Charles. Slice is one building off the corner, next to VooDoo BBQ.
As the name implies, Slice serves pizza by the slice, with a solid list of house special pizzas. You can also build your own. They’ll sell you the entire pie, of course, if you’d rather have your pizza that way. There are also some pasta dishes on the menu. The restaurant also has a solid craft beer list, if you’re not into wine for the evening. It’s a winning dining experience, and when we’re done, it’s very simple to just jump back on the expressway and make the run back to the ‘burbs.
