Las Mkt, Las Vegas, Nv. Report #69

A couple firsts here. 1) this is my first time reporting on a restaurant in an airport and 2) this is my first time doing a report on my iPhone so I have no idea how the finished report will look. If I’m smart enough to actually finish it, that is. Anyway, I normally wouldn’t… Continue reading Las Mkt, Las Vegas, Nv. Report #69

Russell’s Marina Grill, New Orleans, La. Report #59

Great place.  Located a couple blocks from the shores of Lake Pontchartrain and across the street from a marina, the place is always packed.  Outside dining patio, nice size dining room and bar.  Speaking of the bar you know you’re in New Orleans when you see Big Al’s Bloody Mary featured prominently on the breakfast… Continue reading Russell’s Marina Grill, New Orleans, La.

Chris’s Donuts, New Orleans, La. Report #57

This isn’t really a restaurant but I felt a need to do a report on it.  I was born and raised in New Orleans and small, independently owned donut shops are common.  Everyone here had a favorite neighborhood bakery and/or donut shop growing up.  But I’ve been informed that in other parts of the country… Continue reading Chris’s Donuts, New Orleans, La.

Riccobono’s Peppermill, Metairie, La. Report #50

I’ve only been to this place for breakfast and that’s a good reason to come here.  Small bar, and when you see it packed with people drinking at 9:00 AM, you know you’re in New Orleans.  Or at least the metro area.  Also notice all the starters on the menu are alcoholic drinks. On prior… Continue reading Riccobono’s Peppermill, Metairie, La. Report #50

Joe’s Café, Marrero, La. Report #34

Looking at this place you’d think it was your typical donut shop but it’s a lot more.  This is the Lapalco location.  It’s open 24 hours and the full menu is available 24 hours a day.  I came here years ago just for their peanut butter and jelly donut and wanted that today.  I was… Continue reading Joe’s Café, Marrero, La.

Parrot Pete’s, Harvey, La. Report #15

Pretty place.  Nice fake tropical atmosphere with plenty of fake parrots, coconut and banana trees.  Lots of desserts, including beignets.  I’ve only been here for breakfast and that’s good enough for me.  The omelets are made with three eggs and described as “open faced”.  Numerous choices including the “build your own” option with plenty of… Continue reading Parrot Pete’s, Harvey, La.

Tout de Suite Cafe’, New Orleans, La. Report #8

Cute little place in historic Algiers Point on the Westbank.   Interesting decor.  They have a lunch menu but I’ve never even looked at it because I come here for one thing and one thing only.  Breakfast!  I love lox but have never tried their open face lox on bagel with cream cheese, tomato, red… Continue reading Tout de Suite Cafe’, New Orleans, La.
