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

  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 the middle of the building, with an… Continue reading Dick & Jenny’s, New Orleans, LA Report #168

Nine Roses, Gretna, LA Report #167

  Can’t decided between Vietnamese or Chinese food?  Don’t stress it.  Come here and have both.  This place is located less than a block off the Westbank Expressway in Gretna, but I drove by over 1,000 times never knowing it was there.  If you’re driving towards the river on the ground level of the expressway,… Continue reading Nine Roses, Gretna, LA Report #167

There’s ample off street parking, with an attendant to keep an eye… Continue reading Tony Mandina’s, Gretna, LA Report #166

Harbor Seafood & Oyster Bar, Kenner, LA Report #165

  I remember dining at this place a couple decades ago, but didn’t remember how the food was.  I think back then there was only one dining room.  There are three now, and a nice bar.  Also an attached seafood market which I checked out.  All the seafood looked nice and fresh, and they will… Continue reading Harbor Seafood & Oyster Bar, Kenner, LA Report #165

Shaya, New Orleans, LA Report #164

  I’ve heard good things about this place and I see why.  Nice looking place.  They use oak in their wood burning oven, and serve their pita breads straight from it to your table so they’re so hot they burn your hands.  It doesn’t get any fresher than that!  And don’t worry about saving some… Continue reading Shaya, New Orleans, LA Report #164

Famous Dave’s Bar-B-Que, Denver, CO Report #163

  I was in Denver, Colorado, with no car, and hungry.  I saw a shopping and restaurant area a few blocks from my hotel so I headed that way on foot.  I saw a bunch of fast food chain places, like Sonic, IHOP, Smashburger, etc., but I avoid chains if possible.  Then I saw this… Continue reading Famous Dave’s Bar-B-Que, Denver, CO Report #163
