La Boca, New Orleans, LA Report #253

I’ve been wanting to try this place for a long time.   It’s an Argentine Steakhouse that I’ve heard many good things about.  We were in the steak mood so we headed on over! We decided on: And the food: First they brought us a nice little bread basket with some olive oil.  Square pieces… Continue reading La Boca, New Orleans, LA Report #253

The Blind Tiger, Covington, LA Report #252

We made our annual trip to a Christmas tree farm in Covington, LA., to cut down our own Christmas tree.  As we always do, we stopped at The Chimes for lunch, and were told there was a 45-50 minute wait for a table!  Being impatient and hungry, we decided to go elsewhere. Elsewhere presented itself… Continue reading The Blind Tiger, Covington, LA Report #252

Todd’s Frozen Yogurt, Metairie, LA Report #251

We had just finished dinner a few blocks away at Drago’s and decided to stop in here for dessert.  Cute little place with a lot more than frozen yogurt, as the pictures attest to.  ‘Tis the season, so I sampled the frozen eggnog yogurt.  I love eggnog so I thought it was delicious!  If you… Continue reading Todd’s Frozen Yogurt, Metairie, LA Report #251

Drago’s, Metairie, LA Report #250

This place is great.  They’re famous in New Orleans as the originators of Charbroiled Oysters.  Oysters on the half shell, grilled over an open flame, while slathered with an herbed garlic butter.  As they grill, the melted butter drips down into the fire causing huge flare ups, which gives them a nice smoky flavor. There’s… Continue reading Drago’s, Metairie, LA Report #250

Parkway Bakery & Tavern, New Orleans, LA Report #249

If I told a fellow New Orleanian I had never been here, their response would be, “You’re kidding, right?  It’s that popular a po-boy shop.  And very old. Established in 1911. I normally eat healthy during the week and hit the gym every day, so I don’t balloon up to 300 pounds, but there was… Continue reading Parkway Bakery & Tavern, New Orleans, LA Report #249

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
