After a terrible fire closed their doors, Verti Marte Deli in New Orleans has reopened. One actor, Brad Pitt, should be very pleased. “We used to eat a lot at the Verti Marte,” Pitt told the Times-Picayune. “A little bitty market with great shrimp po-boys that I couldn’t get enough of. It recently had a fire problem. But after that, we like Irene’s a lot. Antoine’s and the Windsor Court. There are so many. But in general, shrimp po-boys. I order them everywhere.”

“In New Orleans, the people are great,” he says. “We can just live and breathe and ride bikes. We can take our kids on bike rides, and local people just give us a shout-out – and let us move on. … Everybody treats us like neighbors.”

French Quarter residents Pitt, Angelina Jolie and their children were recently photographed exiting the newly opened deli with snacks. “They came in and got some juice and chips and stuff like that for the kids,” a source told People Magazine. “They don’t get a lot of pop for the kids. They like to get the whole family out and walk around on a pretty day like today.”

Prices start at $2.35 for a breakfast sandwich, earning the Verti Marte motto: “Real Food for Real People at Real Prices.” The po’boys deserve 5 stars, and by all means, get an All that Jazz – a $9.50 po-boy of grilled ham, turkey and shrimp, two cheeses, grilled mushrooms, and tomatoes on grilled French bread with “Wow Sauce.”
