Restaurant des Familles, Crown Point, LA Report #289

Crown Point, Louisiana, is a very short ride from New Orleans.  I live on the Westbank of New Orleans and it only took us about 20 minutes to get here.  It’s well worth the drive.  Beautiful place in a peaceful setting, with a dining room looking out over a swamp.  Last time I was here,… Continue reading Restaurant des Familles, Crown Point, LA Report #289
