Etouffée, Covington, LA Report #360

It was just two weeks ago I crossed the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway for a delicious dinner at The Dakota. Well, here I am doing it again! A friend of mine who lives across the lake visited this restaurant and loved it. I looked up the menu online and knew I had to pop in for… Continue reading Etouffée, Covington, LA Report #360

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.

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

Zydeco’s, Belle Chasse, LA Report #104

  I like this place.  I’ve ordered off the menu before and the food is good, but today I came for the seafood buffet.  I normally shy away from buffets because they’re more about quantity than quality. That’s not the case here.  You can go to any casino buffet and find Snow crab legs, but… Continue reading Zydeco’s, Belle Chasse, LA Report #104

R&O’S, Metairie, LA Report #31

Bobby Hebert’s Cajun Cannon, Metairie, LA Report #14

I forgot to take a picture of the place from the outside so I had to pull one up online to show what it looks like. Bobby Hebert is a former QB for the New Orleans Saints.  He had a strong arm and was a real Louisiana Cajun, from Cut Off, Louisiana, so he had… Continue reading Bobby Hebert’s Cajun Cannon, Metairie, LA Report #14

Cochon, New Orleans, LA Report #10

“Cochon” is French for pig.  Pretty place.  Big place.  Love the wood burning oven and the loft dining.  The sign lights up at night if you’re looking for a landmark. Very interesting menu.  They’ll start you out with a delicious bucket of rolls that are hot, crusty on the outside and soft on the inside,… Continue reading Cochon, New Orleans, LA Report #10
