Southern Charm Bistreaux & Bar, Gretna, LA Report #246

*************** PERMANENTLY CLOSED *************** This place is in a building that used to be a restaurant called O’Brein’s Grille.  It was supposedly a fantastic fine dining restaurant, but it closed down after 10 years of operation.  I say “supposedly” because I kept putting off and never made it there to check it out for myself!… Continue reading Southern Charm Bistreaux & Bar, Gretna, LA Report #246

Fury’s, Metairie, LA Report #245

Happy Halloween! For our Halloween dinner we decided on Fury’s.  Nothing scary about this place.  This family restaurant has been serving food in the New Orleans area since 1967.  The staff is very friendly and the food is excellent! We decided on starting with the Eggplant Chips and Crabmeat Remoulade: “Chips” had me thinking of… Continue reading Fury’s, Metairie, LA Report #245

Quarter View, Metairie, LA Report #244

This place is huge!  Standing across the street I could hardly get a picture of the whole building.  Inside there are several different dining rooms.  There was another large room where it seemed a special event was going on.  So if you’re in the market to rent a space, they can accommodate. I was wondering… Continue reading Quarter View, Metairie, LA Report #244

Mary Mahoney’s, Biloxi, MS Report #202

I’d love coming to this place just for it’s beauty and history.  This is a must dine at place if you visit Biloxi, Mississippi.  How many other restaurants you know of with an over 2,000 year old oak tree in it’s courtyard?  Pictured is the courtyard, bar and just a few of their dining rooms. … Continue reading Mary Mahoney’s, Biloxi, MS Report #202

Commander’s Palace, New Orleans, LA Report #200

It’s hard to believe this is my 200th report.  Long ago I wondered if I’d still be doing this long enough to get to 200.  Then I thought, “Why not?  It’s not like I’m doing anything else”.  So here I am. For my 200th report I knew I had to go somewhere special.  An old,… Continue reading Commander’s Palace, New Orleans, LA Report #200

Rocky & Carlo’s, Chalmette, LA Report #193

I don’t get down into St. Bernard parish much, but when I do I eat at Rocky and Carlo’s!  I’m not sure about this place, though.  If you look at the second picture above you’ll see they advertise “Ladies Invited”.  I think that’s a mistake.  It’s probably all downhill from here. BUT, since I had… Continue reading Rocky & Carlo’s, Chalmette, LA Report #193

Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots, New Orleans, LA Report #172

  When people think about the Fair Grounds they think about horse racing.  Makes sense, since horses have been racing here since 1852!  I think that makes it the third oldest race track in America.  But as usual, when I think of any place, I think of FOOD!  And they serve pretty good New Orleans… Continue reading Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots, New Orleans, LA Report #172

Mansurs On The Boulevard, Baton Rouge, LA Report #169

  I ended up in Baton Rouge today and as always, I was hungry!  Someone recommended this place so we figured we’d give it a try.  It did not disappoint. Nice looking place with a maze of different dining rooms.  The last one pictured looks like a room for private parties, complete with a large… Continue reading Mansurs On The Boulevard, Baton Rouge, LA Report #169

Dick & Jenny’s, New Orleans, LA Report #168

**********     PERMANENTLY CLOSED     ********** If you’ve ever driven down Tchoupitoulas Street Uptown, you’ve probably noticed Dick & Jenny’s.  The building faces Tchoupitoulas St., but you enter on the side on Jena St., which proved to be a challenge for me.  When you walk down the side you’ll see a door in… Continue reading Dick & Jenny’s, New Orleans, LA Report #168

Dunbar’s Creole Cuisine, New Orleans, LA Report #156

***************     PERMANENTLY CLOSED     *************** I went to this restaurant long ago when it was located uptown on Freret Street and remembered that the food was pretty good.  They’re now located on Earhart Blvd. in Gert Town. VERY spacious, well lit dining room.  We had one of those rare meals where I can make… Continue reading Dunbar’s Creole Cuisine, New Orleans, LA Report #156
