Vincent’s Italian Cuisine, New Orleans, LA Report #52

  I’m not sure what happened.  I was just perusing past blogs and I realized Report #53, pictures and everything, was posted here!  Today is 4-28-2018 and I dined at Vincent’s back on 11-18-2017.  I’ll give a few thoughts about what I remember from that meal now.  I know it was great.  Always is at… Continue reading Vincent’s Italian Cuisine, New Orleans, LA Report #52

Mikimoto Japanese Restaurant, New Orleans, LA Report #51

This is my favorite place for sushi in New Orleans for a couple of reasons.  One is the food is good.  Two, I’ll explain later. The place is tiny.  If you’re facing the building on the left side there’s a drive through AND parking.  These two don’t go together, as you can see better if… Continue reading Mikimoto Japanese Restaurant, New Orleans, LA Report #51

Riccobono’s Peppermill, Metairie, LA Report #50

I’ve only been to this place for breakfast and that’s a good reason to come here.  Small bar, and when you see it packed with people drinking at 9:00 AM, you know you’re in New Orleans.  Or at least the metro area.  Also notice all the starters on the menu are alcoholic drinks. On prior… Continue reading Riccobono’s Peppermill, Metairie, LA Report #50

The Cheesecake Factory, Metairie, LA Report #49

This is a chain.  I’d never think about reviewing a chain like Applebee’s or Friday’s, but this place is special.  It’s a chain that doesn’t serve chain type food.  The food is great and the place is beautiful.  The menu is also VERY extensive.  Over 20 pages, so I couldn’t take pics of all of… Continue reading The Cheesecake Factory, Metairie, LA Report #49

Pho 99, Harvey, LA Report #47

********** PERMANENTLY CLOSED **********   I received an email from Groupon not long ago and one of their featured restaurants was Pho 99.  I love Vietnamese cuisine so I bought it.  Since the weather FINALLY turned cool in New Orleans I decided it was time for a big, hot bowl of pho! Located in a… Continue reading Pho 99, Harvey, LA Report #47

The Appetite Repair Shop, New Orleans, LA Report #46

I’ve been wanting to try this place out for some time now because I’ve heard nothing but good things about it.  Tucked away on back streets in historic Algiers Point, on the Westbank of New Orleans, if you don’t know it’s there and go looking for it you’d never find it. At first it just… Continue reading The Appetite Repair Shop, New Orleans, LA Report #46
