The Blind Tiger, Covington, LA Report #252

We made our annual trip to a Christmas tree farm in Covington, LA., to cut down our own Christmas tree.  As we always do, we stopped at The Chimes for lunch, and were told there was a 45-50 minute wait for a table!  Being impatient and hungry, we decided to go elsewhere. Elsewhere presented itself… Continue reading The Blind Tiger, Covington, LA Report #252

Quarter View, Metairie, LA Report #244

This place is huge!  Standing across the street I could hardly get a picture of the whole building.  Inside there are several different dining rooms.  There was another large room where it seemed a special event was going on.  So if you’re in the market to rent a space, they can accommodate. I was wondering… Continue reading Quarter View, Metairie, LA Report #244

Dry Dock Café, New Orleans, LA Report #243

The city of New Orleans spans both sides of the Mississippi River.  If there’s a street that would be considered our “Main Street”, it would be Canal Street, which runs from the river all the way to Lake Pontchartrain.  Canal St. also is the westside boundary of the French Quarter.  At the foot of Canal… Continue reading Dry Dock Café, New Orleans, LA Report #243

Herbsaint, New Orleans, LA Report #240

If you want to venture down to the Central Business District, this place is worth a stop.  It’s in walking distance of the Word War II Museum and the Superdome. Classy looking place.  As soon as you walk in you’ll see a basket full of boxes of Herbsaint matches.  You can help yourself.  What’s classier… Continue reading Herbsaint, New Orleans, LA Report #240

The Vintage, New Orleans, LA Report #239

I heard about this place because of their beignets.  But they have other food too, so we decided to come here for dinner.  Seems this place is a bar first, and a restaurant second.  I could be wrong about that, but the drink menu is longer than the food menu.  I’m not a drinker, but… Continue reading The Vintage, New Orleans, LA Report #239

Brown Butter, New Orleans, LA Report #194

This place popped up on my radar as a good place to have breakfast.  After eating there, I agree!  We decided on the Boudin Hash, Grits, Honey Cluck’n Biskit and the Poutine & Eggs.   And here was the food: Boudin is a pork and rice sausage.  They combined it with chopped potatoes to make… Continue reading Brown Butter, New Orleans, LA Report #194

Rocky & Carlo’s, Chalmette, LA Report #193

I don’t get down into St. Bernard parish much, but when I do I eat at Rocky and Carlo’s!  I’m not sure about this place, though.  If you look at the second picture above you’ll see they advertise “Ladies Invited”.  I think that’s a mistake.  It’s probably all downhill from here. BUT, since I had… Continue reading Rocky & Carlo’s, Chalmette, LA Report #193
