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

Herbsaint, New Orleans, LA Report #240

If you want to venture down to the Central Business District, this place is worth a stop.  It’s in walking distance of the Word War II Museum and the Superdome. Classy looking place.  As soon as you walk in you’ll see a basket full of boxes of Herbsaint matches.  You can help yourself.  What’s classier… Continue reading Herbsaint, New Orleans, LA Report #240

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

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

Tsunami, New Orleans, LA Report #195

This place is located on the ground floor of the Pan-American Life Building, in the Central Business District.  Since the restaurant has a Poydras Street address, I entered on Poydras St.  I didn’t see a restaurant, so I started roaming around, until a security guard behind a desk stopped me.  Our exchange went like this:… Continue reading Tsunami, New Orleans, LA Report #195
