Sandros Trattoria, Metairie LA Report #545

I have a friend who’s an authentic, New Orleans Italian. She’s never shown me any paperwork to prove it, but I believe her. She’s the one that told me about this place. I tried to get here once before but couldn’t get a reservation. It was kind of last minute. Today I happened to be… Continue reading Sandros Trattoria, Metairie LA Report #545

The Little Easy, New Orleans, LA Report #544

I heard this place had good pressed poboys. I checked out their menu online and saw this: Tamales? Cheese curds? And look at those crawfish nachos! I had to get in here! My greediness blinded me to the fact that time marches on and menus change. We got here and none of that was on… Continue reading The Little Easy, New Orleans, LA Report #544

Westbank Grill, Westwego, LA Report #543

I’ve been eyeballing this joint for some time. There’s a place in Westwego we call The Shrimp Lot. It’s like an open air seafood flea market. If I’m making a big pot of gumbo, or something else where I need a bunch of shrimp, I take the drive down there to buy them. You can’t… Continue reading Westbank Grill, Westwego, LA Report #543

Avo, New Orleans, LA Report #542

I get emails from this website called Eater New Orleans. They sent me this one entiltled, “Here are the tastiest Italian eats in New Orleans“. Click on that title if you want to see the list. Man, I wish they haden’t done that. If they hadn’t, I might have stayed home tonight and ate a… Continue reading Avo, New Orleans, LA Report #542

Lime Leaf Thai Eatery, Metairie, LA Report #541

When I go to a restaurant I’ve never been to before I do a new restaurant report. When I go back to a restaurant I’ve already reported on, I don’t do a new report. I simply add on to the old one. This is a unique situation. This restaurant used to be called Mama Thai.… Continue reading Lime Leaf Thai Eatery, Metairie, LA Report #541

Today’s Ketch Seafood, Chalmette, LA Report #540

Yesterday for lunch we had fried seafood on the brain, so we headed to Deanie’s seafood in Bucktown. We ended up getting sidetracked and having an excellent lunch at Station 6 instead. Today we decided to scratch that fried seafood itch. This place is located down in St. Bernard Parish. I’ve had several people tell… Continue reading Today’s Ketch Seafood, Chalmette, LA Report #540

Station 6, Metairie, LA Report #539

I have no idea why they call this place Station 6. It’s not like there’s a Station 5 to the west and a Station 7 to the east. Or a Station anything anywhere around. I checked. So I’m in the dark. What I do know is I’ve been wanting to try it for some time.… Continue reading Station 6, Metairie, LA Report #539

Budsi’s Authentic Thai, New Orleans, LA Report #538

This place is tucked away on a back street in the Marigny neighborhood of New Orleans. I never would have known it was here, but my daughter has a habit of looking at my restaurant reports, finding a place I’ve never been, and buying me a gift certificate for it for Christmas. One for this… Continue reading Budsi’s Authentic Thai, New Orleans, LA Report #538

Tea Bar, Belle Chasse, LA Report #537

A few weeks ago I had dinner at Rotolo’s Pizza, which is in the same strip mall as this place. I saw the sign and wondered what kind of tea they might serve here. We stepped in to check it out, and I saw they sell a lot more than tea. Including crepes. I love… Continue reading Tea Bar, Belle Chasse, LA Report #537

Fritai, New Orleans, LA Report #536

This is a Haitian joint. There aren’t many of those in New Orleans. According to their website they serve Haitian Street Food. I was looking forward to trying that! My waitress gave me a little metal cup, a bottle of water, and a little piece of paper with one of those codes to scan for… Continue reading Fritai, New Orleans, LA Report #536
