  • Frontier RestaurantFrontier RestaurantThe po'boy sandwich, much like the muffaletta, is a fixture of New Orleans cuisine. And, like the muffaletta, it has many variations - some might argue, even more. That's because the po'boy has undergone a bit of a renaissance in New Orleans, with new kids on the block making reimagined versions with liver cheese, grilled shrimp, and roasted duck, to name a few examples. And now there's even a "Vietnamese po'boy" that's become popular, otherwise known as a banh mi, whose endearing nickname points to a growing affinity among locals for the "new" sandwich.

  • Thinkstock/ iStockphotoRemember the days when getting a drink of water meant going to the kitchen sink to fill up a glass? Yeah, we don't either. Nowadays the market for water is flooded (get it?) with choices to meet your H2O preferences. But with so many options, it's hard to know what exactly you're drinking. Spring water? Artesian water? Mineral water? Bottled water? PH-balanced water? And don't even get us started on artisanal tap water. But what's really in your water - and what tastes the best?

    "The single most common refrain I hear is, 'It's just water,'" says Michael Cervin, senior editor of Bottled Water Web, the leading source of bottled water information on the Internet since 1996, and the author of the upcoming book Our World of Water: the Good, the Bad and the Ugly of Earth's Most Precious Resource.
