Marjie’s Grill, New Orleans, LA Report #457

I had no idea this place existed. My daughter knows I love of food, and trying different restaurants. So when it’s time to give me a gift, she looks at my restaurant reports to find a place I haven’t tried yet, and gets me a gift certificate for it. For Christmas, in conjunction with her… Continue reading Marjie’s Grill, New Orleans, LA Report #457

Three B’s Burger & Wine Bar, Metairie, LA Report #456

A friend of mine, who knows I’m always on the lookout for a good burger, told me about this place. It’s kind of off the beaten path so if she hadn’t I never would have found it!

China Moon, Chalmette, LA Report #455

Today we ended up in St. Bernard Parish around lunch time. We had no idea what we wanted for lunch, then Secret Thai came to mind. They are great! But then we looked it up and it’s closed on Sundays. After thinking of that place we had our taste buds set on Asian food. We… Continue reading China Moon, Chalmette, LA Report #455

I first tried rolled ice cream at a place called Sweet Rolls out in Metairie. I was an instant fan! So of course the joint promptly went out of business. I haven’t had it since. Until tonight!

El Toque Catracho, Gretna, LA Report #450

Not long ago, this place was a Mexican place called Margaritas Mexican Cuisine. I loved it! I drive past here often, and awhile back I noticed this sign saying “El Toque Catracho Now Open”. Was Margaritas gone? Or did they just change their name? I was in the mood for Mexican food so I figured… Continue reading El Toque Catracho, Gretna, LA Report #450
