Daisey Mae’s, New Orleans, LA Report #357

I’ve been working right down the street from this place for years and never tried them. Until today. Apparently they’re known for their Bloody Mary’s. Having alcoholic drinks with breakfast isn’t just acceptable in New Orleans, but encouraged! If I was a drinker I would have given one a try. I love Crab Cake Benedict.… Continue reading Daisey Mae’s, New Orleans, LA Report #357

NOLA Caye, New Orleans, LA Report #327

This place is located in the Central Business District of New Orleans. Nice, clean looking place with a huge bar. What got me in here? I saw they had a lobster roll on the menu.

Gianna, New Orleans, LA Report #297

There’s a local restaurant critic who says you should never go to a restaurant as soon as it opens.  Give them six months or so to get their act together, and then go.  I happen to work right down the street from this place, and remember when this corner was just an empty lot.  I… Continue reading Gianna, New Orleans, LA Report #297
