Marcello’s, New Orleans, LA Report #248

We were overdue for some Italian food and decided on this place.  Excellent choice.  Everything was fantastic.  I’m not a wine drinker, but if you are, I’m pretty sure you’ll find the right bottle for you.  There were racks of wine all over the place.  Our waitress said we could roam around and just grab… Continue reading Marcello’s, New Orleans, LA Report #248

Liuzza’s, New Orleans, LA Report #247

This place isn’t associated at all with the Liuzza’s near the Fairgrounds Race Course.  Totally different restaurant and owners. There’s a po-boy restaurant near here called Parkway Bakery & Tavern.  During the month of November they have a special Thanksgiving po-boy sandwich, with turkey, dressing and cranberry sauce on it.  They normally advertise it pretty… Continue reading Liuzza’s, New Orleans, LA Report #247

Southern Charm Bistreaux & Bar, Gretna, LA Report #246

This place is in a building that used to be a restaurant called O’Brein’s Grille.  It was supposedly a fantastic fine dining restaurant, but it closed down after 10 years of operation.  I say “supposedly” because I kept putting off and never made it there to check it out for myself! A long time New… Continue reading Southern Charm Bistreaux & Bar, Gretna, LA Report #246

Fury’s, Metairie, LA Report #245

Happy Halloween! For our Halloween dinner we decided on Fury’s.  Nothing scary about this place.  This family restaurant has been serving food in the New Orleans area since 1967.  The staff is very friendly and the food is excellent! We decided on starting with the Eggplant Chips and Crabmeat Remoulade: “Chips” had me thinking of… Continue reading Fury’s, Metairie, LA Report #245

Quarter View, Metairie, LA Report #244

This place is huge!  Standing across the street I could hardly get a picture of the whole building.  Inside there are several different dining rooms.  There was another large room where it seemed a special event was going on.  So if you’re in the market to rent a space, they can accommodate. I was wondering… Continue reading Quarter View, Metairie, LA Report #244

Dry Dock Café, New Orleans, LA Report #243

The city of New Orleans spans both sides of the Mississippi River.  If there’s a street that would be considered our “Main Street”, it would be Canal Street, which runs from the river all the way to Lake Pontchartrain.  Canal St. also is the westside boundary of the French Quarter.  At the foot of Canal… Continue reading Dry Dock Café, New Orleans, LA Report #243

The Spud Spot, Harvey, LA Report #242

Do you like baked potatoes?  Of course you don’t.  Unless you’re not normal.  If someone brought you just a plain, baked potato, you’d say, “What the hell is this?  Put some STUFF in it”!  At least some butter!  Even better some butter, sour cream and chives!  Even better-er, some butter, cheese sauce, cheddar cheese, chives,… Continue reading The Spud Spot, Harvey, LA Report #242
