Marigny Brasserie, New Orleans, LA Report #467

This place is only a couple blocks outside of the French Quarter. The last time I came here was with my daughter, who was in high school at the time. She’s now in her 30’s. That’s how long it’s been. Not sure why I haven’t been here in so long, because we loved the place!… Continue reading Marigny Brasserie, New Orleans, LA Report #467

Five Happiness, New Orleans, LA Report #466

There’s a Chinese restaurant not far from my house called 3 Happiness. It’s very good. This is FIVE Happiness. That’s 2 more happinesses. Happiness wise I guess that means this place would be 2/5th better? I was never good with fractions. Anyway, this place has been around as long as I can remember. I checked… Continue reading Five Happiness, New Orleans, LA Report #466

Redfish Pizza, Kenner, LA Report #465

For being on a main street, this place is really off the beaten path. If you look at the maps above in the 3rd and 4th pictures, it’s about the last thing you find before you hit Lake Pontchartrain and can’t go any further. So why even come this way? There is a Riverboat Casino… Continue reading Redfish Pizza, Kenner, LA Report #465

Lilly’s Café, New Orleans, LA Report #464

I’ve been wanting to try this place for a good while. Some time ago someone told me they made a shrimp pho. I love pho, but had never seen a shrimp one in any of the Vietnamese restaurants I’d been to. Today we finally made it in. Small, cozy little place, with a sign in… Continue reading Lilly’s Café, New Orleans, LA Report #464

Dot’s Diner, Jefferson, LA Report #463

Even though it was about lunchtime, we were in the mood for breakfast. We headed to a great breakfast spot we hadn’t been to in a bit. The Panola Street Cafe. Since it was the busy time of the day, we tried to call first to see if there was a wait for a table,… Continue reading Dot’s Diner, Jefferson, LA Report #463

Las Cazuelas, Harvey, LA Report #462

We had some business to take care of in Harvey today, and as happens pretty often, I got hungry. STARVING in fact! I wasn’t far a baked potato joint called The Spud Spot, and one of their huge, seafood stuffed potatoes sounded like a great idea. So we headed on over. Unfortunately, there was a… Continue reading Las Cazuelas, Harvey, LA Report #462

Laura’s Candies, Metairie, LA Report #461

We were driving through Metairie and got redirected off the beaten path by some road construction. That’s when I saw this place. Decided to pop in and check it out. When I saw the sign said, “New Orleans’ Oldest Candy Store”, I thought that it’s not in New Orleans, but maybe it used to be?… Continue reading Laura’s Candies, Metairie, LA Report #461

II Tony’s Restaurant, New Orleans, LA Report #460

There are a bunch of restaurants in this little area right on Lake Pontchartrain. The ones I’ve reported on are Felix’s, Lakeview Harbor, Landry’s, Ming’s, Russel’s Marina Grill, Sala and The Blue Crab. I ate at this place a long time ago. So long ago, I forgot if I liked it or not! Tonight, we… Continue reading II Tony’s Restaurant, New Orleans, LA Report #460

La Madeleine, Metairie, LA Report #459

There are a few of these in and around the New Orleans area, but I’ve never been tempted to stop in one. I’m just not a fan of French food. Not sure why. Maybe it’s because my native New Orleans cuisine has so much French influence in it I don’t find it different enough to… Continue reading La Madeleine, Metairie, LA Report #459

Wishing Town Bakery Cafe, Metairie, LA Report #458

I’ve heard good things about this place. It’s a bakery, and I know people who have come here for birthday cakes. But I didn’t come in to eat cake for dinner. I came in for their REAL food! Tiny place located at the end of a strip mall. First off, we couldn’t find the joint!… Continue reading Wishing Town Bakery Cafe, Metairie, LA Report #458
