Westbank Grill, Westwego, LA Report #543

I’ve been eyeballing this joint for some time. There’s a place in Westwego we call The Shrimp Lot. It’s like an open air seafood flea market. If I’m making a big pot of gumbo, or something else where I need a bunch of shrimp, I take the drive down there to buy them. You can’t… Continue reading Westbank Grill, Westwego, LA Report #543

Parish Line Bistro Bar, Metairie, LA Report #526

I love lobster. Anyway I can get it. In 2008 I ended up in Newport, Rhode Island, not long after I heard about lobster rolls on some Food Network program. I had never had one in my life, so while I was up there I tried to eat enough of them to satisfy me for… Continue reading Parish Line Bistro Bar, Metairie, LA Report #526

Causeway Bar & Grill, Metairie, LA Report #525

This place is located just one block away from a very popular shopping mall in Metairie. It’s also located right before the Interstate 10 onramp to New Orleans, so just about every time I’ve been in Metairie and headed home, I passed right by it. Not being a drinker, I never considered dropping in. But… Continue reading Causeway Bar & Grill, Metairie, LA Report #525

Ted’s Frostop, New Orleans, LA Report #487

This place is affiliated with the national chain of Frostop restaurants, started in 1926 in Columbus, Ohio. There’s also one in Metairie (Report #376), which is just named “Frostop”. This one is named Ted’s Frostop, so I guess they’re all independently owned and operated. The menu here is also different, so I gave this one… Continue reading Ted’s Frostop, New Orleans, LA Report #487

Coffee &, Marrero, LA Report #478

Marrero is located just south of New Orleans, on the WestBank of the Mississippi River. I live in the part of New Orleans that’s on the Westbank (called Algiers), so it’s not far from my house at all. I’ve seen this place several times, and always thought it was just a little donut shop. Well,… Continue reading Coffee &, Marrero, LA Report #478

Marigny Brasserie, New Orleans, LA Report #467

This place is only a couple blocks outside of the French Quarter. The last time I came here was with my daughter, who was in high school at the time. She’s now in her 30’s. That’s how long it’s been. Not sure why I haven’t been here in so long, because we loved the place!… Continue reading Marigny Brasserie, New Orleans, LA Report #467

Dots Diner, Jefferson, LA Report #463

Even though it was about lunchtime, we were in the mood for breakfast. We headed to a great breakfast spot we hadn’t been to in a bit. The Panola Street Cafe. Since it was the busy time of the day, we tried to call first to see if there was a wait for a table,… Continue reading Dots Diner, Jefferson, LA Report #463

Three B’s Burger & Wine Bar, Metairie, LA Report #456

***** PERMANENTLY CLOSED ***** A friend of mine, who knows I’m always on the lookout for a good burger, told me about this place. It’s kind of off the beaten path so if she hadn’t I never would have found it! I love the looks of this place. Clean, sleek, modern and well lit. We… Continue reading Three B’s Burger & Wine Bar, Metairie, LA Report #456

Oscar’s, Metairie, LA Report #445

As you can see, this is a bar. Big one. Darts. Pool. Jello shots. All the normal bar stuff. But I’m not a drinker. I’m an eater. I’ve been hearing for some time that the burgers here were great. When people told me it was on Metairie Rd., I had no idea where. I’ve driven… Continue reading Oscar’s, Metairie, LA Report #445
