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

Twin City Grill, Bloomington, MN Report #99

  Continuing my travels through the great, white north, which happened to be just as hot as it was in New Orleans when I left, I ended up at the Mall of America.  A wondrous place.  Then hunger struck. This place was pretty good.  They start you off with some whipped butter and warm rolls,… Continue reading Twin City Grill, Bloomington, MN Report #99

Russell’s Marina Grill, New Orleans, LA Report #59

Great place.  Located a couple blocks from the shores of Lake Pontchartrain and across the street from a marina, the place is always packed.  Outside dining patio, nice size dining room and bar.  Speaking of the bar you know you’re in New Orleans when you see Big Al’s Bloody Mary featured prominently on the breakfast… Continue reading Russell’s Marina Grill, New Orleans, LA Report #59

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 Report #42
