New Orleans Hamburger & Seafood Co., Harvey, LA Report #25

  This place is a local chain with several locations around the New Orleans metro area.  They’ve been around since 1984 and are pretty good!  In spite of the name I find they don’t really have outstanding burgers.  If I want a good burger I’d head elsewhere.  But I had been in the mood for… Continue reading New Orleans Hamburger & Seafood Co., Harvey, LA Report #25

Legacy Kitchen, Gretna, LA Report #24

  There are five Legacy Kitchen locations.  This one technically is called “Legacy Kitchen, Steak + Chop” because as you can see on their menu they specialize in 28 day aged steaks and chops.  I’ve been to the location in Metairie and they only have two un-aged steaks on their menu.  I love the rustic… Continue reading Legacy Kitchen, Gretna, LA Report #24

VooDoo BBQ & Grill, Harvey, LA Report #23

Pretty good BBQ at this place.  There are other locations, including one right on historic St. Charles Avenue.  I’ve been to that one too and the food is pretty consistent between these two locations. You wouldn’t expect to find good gumbo, or gumbo period at a BBQ place, but theirs is good!  Full of sausage… Continue reading VooDoo BBQ & Grill, Harvey, LA Report #23

Hoshun, New Orleans, LA Report #22

In my opinion this is the BEST Chinese Restaurant in New Orleans and every time I go there they reinforce that opinion.   A good thing is if you can’t decide between Chinese and Japanese they also have a sushi menu so you get the best of both worlds!  And they do both well. I’ve… Continue reading Hoshun, New Orleans, LA Report #22

Johnny Longboats, Riviera Beach, FL Report #21

I also had the pleasure to dine in this place during my escape from southeast Louisiana.  If you see Jambalaya on the menu and they say it’s “served over rice”, don’t get it!  Jambalaya IS rice!  Another little tip I was no longer in Louisiana. Nice looking place.  It’s pretty cool there at night and… Continue reading Johnny Longboats, Riviera Beach, FL Report #21

Rita’s, West Palm Beach, FL Report #20

I finally escaped the New Orleans area for a little vacation.  In southeast Louisiana we have snowballs, or snowcones as some might say, but we don’t have frozen custard.  Lord I wish we did! I had been to a Rita’s before in Alabama and loved it.  The Italian ice and frozen custard are utterly delicious.… Continue reading Rita’s, West Palm Beach, FL Report #20

The Creole Creamery, New Orleans, LA Report #19

Cute, clean little place with the feel of an old time ice cream parlor.  This is the Lakeview location so if you’re enjoying lunch or dinner in any one of the numerous restaurants in the area you may want to stop here for dessert.  There’s also a location uptown.  VERY IMPORTANT:  They ONLY take cash.… Continue reading The Creole Creamery, New Orleans, LA Report #19
