Buckhorn Exchange, Denver, CO Report #162

  I saw this place on either the Travel Channel or the Food Network years ago and couldn’t wait to get here sooner or later.  Well, I made it.  They bill themselves as, “Colorado’s most historic eating and drinking establishment”.  They are old.  So old  they actually have Colorado liquor license #1!  I was impressed. … Continue reading Buckhorn Exchange, Denver, CO Report #162

Stoic & Genuine, Denver, CO Report #161

  I ended up in Denver, Colorado!  And I got hungry.  I heard there were restaurants in Union Station so I headed there.  This restaurant, with a weird name, is located inside.  I stepped in and asked to see the menu and I saw a lobster club sandwich on it.  I was sold.  Time to… Continue reading Stoic & Genuine, Denver, CO Report #161

La Providencia, Gretna, LA Report #160

  My favorite Mexican Restaurant on the Westbank is El Paso (Report #9).   I passed this place a thousand times and thought about trying it out, and tonight I finally did. Like any other Mexican place they start you out with chips and salsa.  The chips were very crisp and fresh, and the salsa… Continue reading La Providencia, Gretna, LA Report #160

Kin, New Orleans, LA Report #159

Short Stop Poboys, Metairie, LA Report #158

  I was reading the holiday dining guide edition of Where Y’at magazine and saw an ad for this place.  The ad mentioned they offered over 30 different varieties of poboys in 6, 9 and 14 inch sizes.  Sounded great!  More variety and smaller sizes so I can try more than one.  We braved the stormy weather… Continue reading Short Stop Poboys, Metairie, LA Report #158

The Camellia Grill, New Orleans, LA Report #157

  I always thought of this place as a burger place.  Not a breakfast place.  But today we had a great breakfast there! My dining partner started out with scrambled eggs, bacon and grits.  About as simple as you can get.  She enjoyed it.  And you see the syrup serving type vase thing behind the… Continue reading The Camellia Grill, New Orleans, LA Report #157

Dunbar’s Creole Cuisine, New Orleans, LA Report #156

  I went to this restaurant long ago when it was located uptown on Freret Street and remembered that the food was pretty good.  They’re now located on Earhart Blvd. in Gert Town. VERY spacious, well lit dining room.  We had one of those rare meals where I can make a blanket statement.  Everything we… Continue reading Dunbar’s Creole Cuisine, New Orleans, LA Report #156
