Galatoire’s, New Orleans, LA Report #300

  Back in July of 2017 I started doing this food blog just for fun.  Now, three years later, guess what?  I’m still doing it just for fun because no way in hell anybody would pay me anything for this bullcorn I write! Hard to believe this is report #300.  Each 100th report I make… Continue reading Galatoire’s, New Orleans, LA Report #300

Dab’s Bistro, Metairie, LA Report #293

The man in the portrait above is Chef Duke LoCicero.  He’s a legend in New Orleans.  He owned a restaurant in the French Quarter named Café Giovanni for 26 years.  It closed in 2017.  I loved that place.  One dish he was famous for was called Oysters Giovanni.  Fried oysters on a plate covered with… Continue reading Dab’s Bistro, Metairie, LA Report #293

Restaurant des Familles, Crown Point, LA Report #289

Crown Point, Louisiana, is a very short ride from New Orleans.  I live on the Westbank of New Orleans and it only took us about 20 minutes to get here.  It’s well worth the drive.  Beautiful place in a peaceful setting, with a dining room looking out over a swamp.  Last time I was here,… Continue reading Restaurant des Familles, Crown Point, LA Report #289

Vera’s Seafood, Slidell, LA Report #269

This place has been in business a long time.   It opened in 1952, and was built on wooden pilings over the water on Lake Pontchartrain in Slidell, Louisiana.  Hurricane Katrina destroyed the place, so they moved to this inshore location in a strip mall. Being in a strip mall, it doesn’t look very appealing… Continue reading Vera’s Seafood, Slidell, LA Report #269

RiverShack Gretna, Gretna, LA Report #260

If you ignore the construction going on in front, this is a nice looking place.  I’m not sure what they’re doing with the construction, but I saw a bunch of potted plants out there, so landscaping is in the near future.  It’ll probably be nicer looking then! This place is located right on the Mississippi… Continue reading RiverShack Gretna, Gretna, LA Report #260

Parkway Bakery & Tavern, New Orleans, LA Report #249

If I told a fellow New Orleanian I had never been here, their response would be, “You’re kidding, right?  It’s that popular a po-boy shop.  And very old. Established in 1911. I normally eat healthy during the week and hit the gym every day, so I don’t balloon up to 300 pounds, but there was… Continue reading Parkway Bakery & Tavern, New Orleans, LA Report #249

Liuzza’s, New Orleans, LA Report #247

This place isn’t associated at all with the Liuzza’s near the Fairgrounds Race Course.  Totally different restaurant and owners. There’s a po-boy restaurant near here called Parkway Bakery & Tavern.  During the month of November they have a special Thanksgiving po-boy sandwich, with turkey, dressing and cranberry sauce on it.  They normally advertise it pretty… Continue reading Liuzza’s, New Orleans, LA Report #247

Gris-Gris, New Orleans, LA Report #232

If you were born and raised in New Orleans, like me, you know what Gris-Gris means.  If you don’t, I was nice enough to include the definition for you.  No need to thank me.  But here it can also mean great food, because everything we had was fantastic. If you like the great outdoors, they… Continue reading Gris-Gris, New Orleans, LA Report #232

Boucherie, New Orleans, LA Report #222

I keep a list of restaurants I want to try one day.  This place made the list when I found out they had bread pudding made from Krispy Kreme donuts!  So that was the main reason I came here.  I’ve now got many other reasons to return. Small little cozy place.  Even the flowers on… Continue reading Boucherie, New Orleans, LA Report #222

Home Cooking Café, Harvey, LA Report #206

I was in the mood for some home cooking today and I had heard good things about this place.  I looked up their menu online and it showed the only two entrées they had were meatloaf and fried chicken.  That sounded good to me, so we headed on in! When we got there we found… Continue reading Home Cooking Café, Harvey, LA Report #206
