Palmettos On The Bayou, Slidell, LA Report #523

I knew I’d be in Slidell, LA., today, so earlier this week I asked folks in an online food group where I should eat. This was overwhelmingly the suggestion I got. I decided to take their advice.

Trenasse, New Orleans, LA Report #499

Bearcat Café, New Orleans, LA Report #328

We’ve tried to get into this place twice on weekends, but it’s so popular there’s always a long wait for a table. In fact, both times we went to High Hat Café, which is right on the corner just south of here, we were actually trying to come here! To finally get a table in… Continue reading Bearcat Café, New Orleans, LA Report #328
