Driving down Metairie Road toward the railroad
tracks, one might take a left turn onto Pink Street and stop for a delicious meal at Delerno’s Restaurant (619 Pink
Street) which specialized in crawfish dishes long before most other area restaurants served them. A sign (near the tree in
this 1937 photo) points the way to Delerno’s, The photograph also includes the Metairie Market, a bakery,
and Metairie Hardware.
