Porter & Luke’s, Metairie, LA Report #154

  I was perusing Tom Fitzmorris’ website and saw the ad pictured above for this place.  I remember decades ago I was going to Jacques-Imo’s for the first time so I called Tom’s radio show and asked him what I should try.  He told me fried chicken.  I thought he was crazy.  Go to a… Continue reading Porter & Luke’s, Metairie, LA Report #154

Slice Pizzeria, New Orleans, LA Report #153

  From what I understand there used to be a few locations of Slice, but this one on St. Charles Ave. is the only one now. We decided to start off with the BBQ Shrimp Appetizer, then have the Cheese Ravioli, Spaghetti and Meatballs, and a slice of the White Pizza and the Meat Lovers… Continue reading Slice Pizzeria, New Orleans, LA Report #153

Heard Dat Kitchen, New Orleans, LA Report #152

  My big sisters went to this place, loved it, and kept bugging me to go try it.  Little brothers never want to do what their big sisters tell them to do, but I finally gave in and headed uptown to give it a try.  I was in the mood for some traditional, New Orleans… Continue reading Heard Dat Kitchen, New Orleans, LA Report #152

Fuji Hana, Gretna, LA Report #151

  I don’t know if it’s just me, but it seems most sushi places are pretty much the same.  Same menu, same preparation, etc.  I’m always looking for something that makes one stand out from the others.  Tonight I figured I’d give Fuji Hana a try. Big, pretty place.  If you like hibachi tables there’s… Continue reading Fuji Hana, Gretna, LA Report #151

Domenica, New Orleans, LA Report #150

  This is the Downtown location.  Domenica is located on the ground floor of the Roosevelt hotel.  There’s an entrance right on Baronne St., so you don’t have to go through the hotel, but you should!  It’s a beautiful, old, New Orleans hotel.  The famous and historic Sazerac bar, where New Orleans movers and shakers… Continue reading Domenica, New Orleans, LA Report #150

Heads & Tails, Harahan, LA Report #149

  Why didn’t anyone ever tell me about this place?  It was great!  So many unique things on their menu.  Like Boudin Stuffed Mushrooms, Croissant sandwiches, Boudin Stuffed Pork Chops, the Belle River Burger (a fried egg and crawfish etouffee on a burger!), among other things. My dining partner wanted to start off with a… Continue reading Heads & Tails, Harahan, LA Report #149

Adolfo’s, New Orleans, LA Report #148

  I have a new favorite Italian restaurant. If you’re walking through the 600 block of the bustling and popular Frenchmen St., you’ll see the sign for Adolfo’s Restaurant, and a red door.  If you open the door you’ll see a tiny bar.  Not a restaurant.  But, you’ll also see a staircase.  If you go… Continue reading Adolfo’s, New Orleans, LA Report #148
