In the Italian American community in New Orleans, funerals were followed by a visit to this century-old institution for the turtle soup. That’s just the way it was and that’s what Mandina’s is: the way it was. When you’ve been around for over 100 years you stick to what you know. In this case that’s Sicilian-Louisiana food: trout almandine, red beans and rice with veal cutlets, and bell peppers stuffed with macaroni and meat. The family-style dining room, in its way, is as historic as any building in the city and just as crucial to its culture. Cash only.
