Josephine Estelle, New Orleans, LA Report #210

Beautiful place.  I love the open kitchen.  Let’s you see if they drop your chicken leg on the floor and put it back on your plate! We decided on: And the food: My dining partner wanted the chicken, which didn’t come with a side.  My Osso Bucco came with hominy, which I’m not a fan… Continue reading Josephine Estelle, New Orleans, LA Report #210

Ugly Dog Saloon & BBQ, New Orleans, LA Report #209

I came here for one thing and one thing only.  The Lafitte Pig sandwich.  I heard from a fellow foodie it was worth the trip.  Sliced ham, pulled pork and bacon, topped with coleslaw and cheddar cheese.  Sounded good to me. Nice sized place.  When I walked in I wasn’t sure if I should have… Continue reading Ugly Dog Saloon & BBQ, New Orleans, LA Report #209

Saba, New Orleans, LA Report #208

Right on the corner of Magazine and Nashville Streets this is a beautiful restaurant.  I love the large dining room windows that let the sun in.  I understand the owner and head chef here used to be at Shaya, which is also on Magazine St., a little over a mile to the east.  So if… Continue reading Saba, New Orleans, LA Report #208

If you want to grill your own food you can sit at a grill table, but you may… Continue reading Little Korea BBQ, New Orleans, LA Report #207

When we got there we found… Continue reading Home Cooking Café, Harvey, LA Report #206

Johnny Sanchez, New Orleans, LA Report #205

I get tired of the same old Tex-Mex menus at Mexican restaurants.  They all have basically the same food with maybe slight variations.  So when I saw this place had pig ears and crawfish enchiladas on the menu, I figured I’d give it a try! Beautiful place.  I decided on: And the food: I don’t… Continue reading Johnny Sanchez, New Orleans, LA Report #205

Wakin’ Bakin’, New Orleans, LA Report #204

  Sometimes it’s hard to find a good, Sunday morning breakfast place that’s not packed. I think I found one! Nice variety on the menu, and in true New Orleans style, a breakfast drink menu so you can start your Sunday with a buzz! We decided on: And the food: My dining partner had the… Continue reading Wakin’ Bakin’, New Orleans, LA Report #204
