Ye Olde College Inn, New Orleans, LA Report #323

This is an old New Orleans restaurant that’s been around in one form or another since 1933. They actually have a garden across the street where they grow things to use in the restaurant for a farm to table experience. You can’t get any fresher than that! I told a fellow New Orleanian I had… Continue reading Ye Olde College Inn, New Orleans, LA Report #323

Rosie’s On The Roof, New Orleans, LA Report #317

This is my 4th COOLinary dinner of the 2020 season.  First was Coterie NOLA, next was The Pelican Club, then GW Fins.  All of them were great.  Tonight I was looking to make it 4 for 4. If you come to New Orleans you really should visit The National WWII Museum.  This restaurant is located… Continue reading Rosie’s On The Roof, New Orleans, LA Report #317

The Duke, Metairie, LA Report #305

I normally eat healthy on weekdays, but my regular dining partner is on vacation, and told me she wasn’t eating healthy while on vacation.  She demanded I take her to get burgers.   When it comes to food, she’s been known to get violent when she doesn’t get her way, so I figured a burger wouldn’t… Continue reading The Duke, Metairie, LA Report #305

Prejean’s, Lafayette, LA. Report #301

The address for this restaurant list it in Lafayette, Louisiana, but it’s actually just north of Lafayette in the small town of Carencro, LA.  Don’t want to cheat them out of their credit for having this place!  If you’re heading down Interstate 10, just take I-49 North, and in a mere two miles you’re here.… Continue reading Prejean’s, Lafayette, LA.

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
