Espiritu, New Orleans, LA Report #506

I was perusing restaurants online and this one got some pretty good reviews. It’s described as a, “Breezy, bohemian-style hangout serving Mexican classics like tacos & tortas, plus mezcal & tequila”. I had no idea what “bohemian-style” was, but it sounded good to me! So we came on in. Nice looking little place. I had… Continue reading Espiritu, New Orleans, LA Report #506

Trenasse, New Orleans, LA Report #499

If you’re walking around the New Orleans Central Business District looking for this restaurant, you won’t find it. You need to be looking for the InterContinental Hotel.

The main entrance to the restaurant (where you have to see the hostess to be seated), is located under… Continue reading Trenasse, New Orleans, LA Report #499

Blaze Pizza, New Orleans, LA Report #497

I didn’t know this place existed. We came down here into the CBD to have the COOLinary lunch at Willa Jean. After waiting for a bit to be seated, we were told they weren’t doing the COOlinary lunch today! And they couldn’t tell us why. Well, we had to feed a parking meter to park… Continue reading Blaze Pizza, New Orleans, LA Report #497

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.

If you come to New Orleans you really should visit The National WWII Museum.  This restaurant is located… Continue reading Rosie’s On The Roof, New Orleans, LA Report #317
