Restaurant des Familles, Crown Point, LA Report #289

Crown Point, Louisiana, is a very short ride from New Orleans.  I live on the Westbank of New Orleans and it only took us about 20 minutes to get here.  It’s well worth the drive.  Beautiful place in a peaceful setting, with a dining room looking out over a swamp.  Last time I was here,… Continue reading Restaurant des Familles, Crown Point, LA Report #289

Slim Goodies Diner, New Orleans, LA Report #288

Thanks to the Coronavirus this is my first time dining INSIDE of a New Orleans restaurant since a lunch at Red’s Chinese on March 15th (which was delicious by the way).  Restaurants here were allowed to open up for dine in yesterday.

Bear’s Poboys, Metairie, LA Report #287

This place is technically called Bear’s Poboys at Gennaro’s because it’s in the same building as a very old Metairie bar that carries that name.  It was also called that to differentiate them from their other location on Veterans Blvd, which sadly closed down due to this Coronavirus pandemic. We had to sit outside today,… Continue reading Bear’s Poboys, Metairie, LA Report #287

I FINALLY GOT TO SIT DOWN AND EAT INSIDE A RESTAURANT!  First time since Red’s Chinese back on March 15th, thanks to this damn COVID-19 pandemic!  I am a happy person.

Chap’s Chicken, New Orleans, LA Report #285

Chap’s is located in a very short strip mall on the side of a convenience store.  In fact, you can say it’s part of the store.  You can walk from the store into the restaurant, and vice versa.  That comes in handy if you want to grab a beer or an ICEE to go with… Continue reading Chap’s Chicken, New Orleans, LA Report #285

G’s Pizza, New Orleans, LA Report #282

Here’s another option open for pickup and delivery during these trying pandemic times.  A friend told me the Cajun Shrimp Pizza was to die for, and that was good enough for me!  I called in my order and headed on over. Pretty small place with inside and outside dining, that is, during normal times.  Looks… Continue reading G’s Pizza, New Orleans, LA Report #282

Lula Restaurant Distillery, New Orleans, LA Report #281

  I’ll be so glad when this Coranavirus has run it’s course and I can go sit down in a restaurant again!  Until then, restaurants need our support more than ever.  And of course, I still need to eat! This place is right on St. Charles Ave., but for some reason I’ve never noticed it. … Continue reading Lula Restaurant Distillery, New Orleans, LA Report #281
