One fine day: New Orleans

You're in town for business, but you have the day off. Go

You have a day to yourself in New Orleans, so laissez les bons temps rouler, starting with breakfast at French Quarter institution Brennan's. The two-course Brennan's Breakfast starts with a choice of turtle soup or baked apple, followed by eggs hussarde (a variation on the Benedict topped with red-wine-based marchand de vin sauce). Or go a la carte and try one of the recent menu additions—like the egg yolk carpaccio—that helped executive chef Slade Rushing become a James Beard Award finalist for Best Chef of the South three years running. Either way, for the grand finale, opt for a fiery tableside preparation of bananas Foster, a dish that was invented here in 1951.

CHICAGO and DES PLAINES, Ill., Sept. 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- United and Honeywell today announced a joint multimillion-dollar investment in Alder Fuels – a cleantech company that is pioneering first-of-its-kind technologies for producing sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) at scale by converting abundant biomass, such as forest and crop waste, into sustainable low-carbon, drop-in replacement crude oil that can be used to produce aviation fuel. When used together across the fuel lifecycle, the Alder technologies, coupled with Honeywell's Ecofining™ process, could have the ability to produce a carbon-negative fuel at spec with today's jet fuel. The goal of the technologies is to produce fuel that is a 100% drop-in replacement for petroleum jet fuel.
