The Milk Bar, New Orleans, LA Report #277

I love lamb.  When this place popped up on my radar I did what I always do.  Went online and looked at the menu.  They have THREE different lamb sandwiches.  One served on a Ciabatta bun with humus, a lamb po-boy, and a Thai one with sweet chili sauce and sour cream.  THAT WAS ALL… Continue reading The Milk Bar, New Orleans, LA Report #277

The Camellia Grill, New Orleans, LA Report #157

  I always thought of this place as a burger place.  Not a breakfast place.  But today we had a great breakfast there! My dining partner started out with scrambled eggs, bacon and grits.  About as simple as you can get.  She enjoyed it.  And you see the syrup serving type vase thing behind the… Continue reading The Camellia Grill, New Orleans, LA Report #157

    I was in the pizza/pasta mood and heard good things about this place, so I figured I’d give it a try.  There’s one in the French Quarter, but I opted to avoid the hassles of parking down there.  This is the one located at 615 S. Carrollton in the Riverbend area. Nice looking… Continue reading Louisiana Pizza Kitchen, New Orleans, LA Report #155

Blue Oak BBQ, New Orleans, LA Report #147

Namese, New Orleans, LA Report #132

********** PERMANENTLY CLOSED********** This is a Vietnamese restaurant.  They describe themselves as bridging the gap between the markets of Vietnam and the streets of New Orleans.  I don’t really care about the markets of Vietnam.  I just want good food, so let’s get right to that! We started out with the Five Spice Pork Belly… Continue reading Namese, New Orleans, LA Report #132

Mikimoto Japanese Restaurant, New Orleans, LA Report #51

This is my favorite place for sushi in New Orleans for a couple of reasons.  One is the food is good.  Two, I’ll explain later. The place is tiny.  If you’re facing the building on the left side there’s a drive through AND parking.  These two don’t go together, as you can see better if… Continue reading Mikimoto Japanese Restaurant, New Orleans, LA Report #51
