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

Creole House Restaurant & Oyster Bar, New Orleans, LA Report #292

Located on the very western edge of the French Quarter, their website says they’re in the oldest building on Canal St.  There used to be a Wendy’s Hamburger restaurant in this building, but you’d never know it now.  Place looks really nice!

The Coronavirus is here.  It’s the apocalypse.  People are being told to stay home unless it’s absolutely necessary to go out.  In fact, the mayor of New Orleans has mandated that!  The third picture above is a picture of Poydras St., in the heart of the Central Business District of New Orleans.  Taking that picture… Continue reading Walk-On’s Sports Bistreaux, New Orleans, LA Report #279

La Boca, New Orleans, LA Report #253

I’ve been wanting to try this place for a long time.   It’s an Argentine Steakhouse that I’ve heard many good things about.  We were in the steak mood so we headed on over!

Marcello’s, New Orleans, LA Report #248

We were overdue for some Italian food and decided on this place.  Excellent choice.  Everything was fantastic.  I’m not a wine drinker, but if you are, I’m pretty sure you’ll find the right bottle for you.  There were racks of wine all over the place.  Our waitress said we could roam around and just grab… Continue reading Marcello’s, New Orleans, LA Report #248

Gus’s Fried Chicken, New Orleans, LA Report #214

As Hurricane Barry made landfall in Louisiana, I woke up and could only think about one thing.  I want some fried chicken!  So I headed to the very newly opened Gus’s World Famous Fried Chicken. Normally I wouldn’t review a chain, which this is.  They have 29 locations in 13 states.  This is the only… Continue reading Gus’s Fried Chicken, New Orleans, LA Report #214

Josephine Estelle, New Orleans, LA Report #210

Beautiful place.  I love the open kitchen.  Let’s you see if they drop your chicken leg on the floor and put it back on your plate! We decided on: And the food: My dining partner wanted the chicken, which didn’t come with a side.  My Osso Bucco came with hominy, which I’m not a fan… Continue reading Josephine Estelle, New Orleans, LA Report #210

Ugly Dog Saloon & BBQ, New Orleans, LA Report #209

I came here for one thing and one thing only.  The Lafitte Pig sandwich.  I heard from a fellow foodie it was worth the trip.  Sliced ham, pulled pork and bacon, topped with coleslaw and cheddar cheese.  Sounded good to me. Nice sized place.  When I walked in I wasn’t sure if I should have… Continue reading Ugly Dog Saloon & BBQ, New Orleans, LA Report #209

Johnny Sanchez, New Orleans, LA Report #205

I get tired of the same old Tex-Mex menus at Mexican restaurants.  They all have basically the same food with maybe slight variations.  So when I saw this place had pig ears and crawfish enchiladas on the menu, I figured I’d give it a try! Beautiful place.  I decided on: And the food: I don’t… Continue reading Johnny Sanchez, New Orleans, LA Report #205
