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!

Commander’s Palace, New Orleans, LA Report #200

It’s hard to believe this is my 200th report.  Long ago I wondered if I’d still be doing this long enough to get to 200.  Then I thought, “Why not?  It’s not like I’m doing anything else”.  So here I am. For my 200th report I knew I had to go somewhere special.  An old,… Continue reading Commander’s Palace, New Orleans, LA Report #200

Tsunami, New Orleans, LA Report #195

This place is located on the ground floor of the Pan-American Life Building, in the Central Business District.  Since the restaurant has a Poydras Street address, I entered on Poydras St.  I didn’t see a restaurant, so I started roaming around, until a security guard behind a desk stopped me.  Our exchange went like this:… Continue reading Tsunami, New Orleans, LA Report #195

Danny & Bonnie Seafood, Gretna, LA Report #191

Tony Mandina’s, Gretna, LA Report #166

  I can’t remember the last time I went to a restaurant that I could absolutely rave about, but this is it!  My new favorite Italian restaurant.  Even if I tried I couldn’t find anything to report negatively on after this dining experience. There’s ample off street parking, with an attendant to keep an eye… Continue reading Tony Mandina’s, Gretna, LA Report #166
