The Dakota, Covington, LA Report #356

There’s a local food critic named Tom Fitzmorris who has a radio show called “The Food Show”. It’s all about restaurants and food, and it’s been on the air here in New Orleans for over 30 years. That’s where I first herd about this restaurant many years ago. He raved about it. And he especially… Continue reading The Dakota, Covington, LA Report #356

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.

Café Minh, New Orleans, LA Report #331

When I first heard of this place I thought it was a Chinese restaurant. It’s actually a Vietnamese restaurant, but besides the fact there’s Pho on the menu, it’s hard to tell. Their website describes the food as, “Saigon’s Southern Vietnamese flavors, modernized with influences from French and American cuisine; all made with the freshest… Continue reading Café Minh, New Orleans, LA Report #331

This place is nowhere near nothing!  Tucked away on a back street, you’ve got to know it’s back there to find it.  It’s the kind of place that has to have good food to stay in business, because they can’t count on a lot of traffic passing by to bring new customers in.  I heard… Continue reading Hong Minh Restaurant, Harvey, LA Report #298

Mama Thai, Metairie, LA Report #295

There’s a restaurant right down the street from here called New Orleans Food & Spirits which everyone raves about.  They don’t take reservations.  Strictly first come first serve. That’s where we tried to go, and they told us it’d be a 25 minute wait.  With the number of people waiting for a table, looked more… Continue reading Mama Thai, Metairie, LA Report #295

Sun Ray Grill, Gretna, LA Report #77

This place is spectacularly spectacular and wonderfully wonderful. I’ve been here several times before. Some things I’ve tried in the past that were really good were under “Starters”, the Portobello fries and the Hoke Poke. The only reason I didn’t get the Hoke Poke this time was it’s too much to eat alone, as an… Continue reading Sun Ray Grill, Gretna, LA Report #77
