Bruno’s Tavern, New Orleans, La. Report #42

A local food critic named Tom Fitzmorris always advised against buying Groupons to go to restaurants.  I have no idea why.  I’ve discovered SOOOOO many good restaurants through Groupon!  And what’s wrong with getting your food at a discount?  The restaurant put themselves on Groupon!  I didn’t.  I just always make sure to tip on… Continue reading Bruno’s Tavern, New Orleans, La.

Swegs Kitchen, , Metairie, La. Report #41

I decided to eat healthy today and I heard this was the place to do it.  I heard right.  The first thing that impresses you when you walk in this place is how spotlessly clean, neat and well lit it is.  Even the restrooms are impressive!  The menu is loaded with healthy items to accommodate… Continue reading Swegs Kitchen, , Metairie, La.

Louisiana Purchase Kitchen, Metairie, La. Report #30

I had a medical procedure today and as a result had to fast since Wednesday.  Therefore, I was seriously hungry.  As a result, I didn’t care about gourmet food for lunch.  I cared about a LOT of food.  Bad food.  Fried food.  Quantity over quality.  This place fits the bill.
