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

Palm & Pine, New Orleans, LA Report #347

This restaurant is located on the northern edge of the French Quarter, on what was once the North Rampart of the original city of New Orleans. Because of that, the street it’s on is named North Rampart. I’ve heard great things about this place and have been wanting to try it for some time. My… Continue reading Palm & Pine, New Orleans, LA Report #347

Rosie’s On The Roof, New Orleans, LA Report #317

This is my 4th COOLinary dinner of the 2020 season.  First was Coterie NOLA, next was The Pelican Club, then GW Fins.  All of them were great.  Tonight I was looking to make it 4 for 4. 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

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

Walk-On’s Sports Bistreaux, New Orleans, LA Report #279

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

Red’s Chinese, New Orleans, LA Report #278

I heard this place had great food.  I used to work in this neighborhood, but haven’t been down this way in some time.  I couldn’t remember seeing a Chinese restaurant in this area, so I got the address.  3048 St. Claude.  I’m driving down St. Claude, in the direction that the address numbers are increasing. … Continue reading Red’s Chinese, New Orleans, LA Report #278

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

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

Red Gravy, New Orleans, LA Report #185

I’m not sure if I should say this place is strange or the people that work there are.  We walk in and inform the hostess we have a party of three.  She says they don’t have tables for three and asks us to sit at the bar.  We don’t want to sit at the bar. … Continue reading Red Gravy, New Orleans, LA Report #185

St. Roch Market, New Orleans, LA Report #183

  This building dates back to 1875 when it was constructed as a state owned, open air market.  Since then it’s been several different things.  I had my first soft shelled crab poboy here back in the late 1970’s, when it was a seafood market and sandwich place.  After Hurricane Katrina in 2005, it sat… Continue reading St. Roch Market, New Orleans, LA Report #183
