Restaurant Cote, Slidell, LA Report #488

I spent the weekend in Slidell to attend some job training. Thanks to a friend who lives nearby, I discovered this little strip of restaurants in Olde Towne Slidell some time ago. I’ve tried KY’s Olde Towne Bicycle Shop and Deanasco, and enjoyed them both, so I was looking forward to trying this place. Their… Continue reading Restaurant Cote, Slidell, LA Report #488

Randazzo’s Family Restaurant, Metairie, LA Report #483

A few nights ago I did something I hadn’t done in years. Looked at the restaurant section in Groupon. I used to do it pretty often to get ideas on new places to try, plus it saves you some money. Nothing wrong with that! There was a deal in there for this place. I bought… Continue reading Randazzo’s Family Restaurant, Metairie, LA Report #483

Redfish Pizza, Kenner, LA Report #465

For being on a main street, this place is really off the beaten path. If you look at the maps above in the 3rd and 4th pictures, it’s about the last thing you find before you hit Lake Pontchartrain and can’t go any further. So why even come this way? There is a Riverboat Casino… Continue reading Redfish Pizza, Kenner, LA Report #465

Swamp Room, Metairie, LA Report #425

This place is primarily a bar. Or as they describe themselves, a late night tavern. It has pool tables, dart boards, plenty of televisions to catch your favorite game, and a big bar in the middle to keep you properly liquored up! It’s also got something I’ve been hearing about for years. The Swamp Burger.… Continue reading Swamp Room, Metairie, LA Report #425

Ajun Cajun, New Orleans, LA Report #397

This place describes their food as authentic Japanese food with a hint of Cajun spice. That intrigued me, so I put it on my list of restaurants I wanted to try some time back. Then last night I saw a glowing review of it online, which pushed me to get in here today for lunch.… Continue reading Ajun Cajun, New Orleans, LA Report #397

The Company Burger, New Orleans, LA Report #355

I ate at this place maybe 5 years ago, before I started doing these reports. I had the lamb burger and loved it. No idea why I haven’t come back until today, but better late than never. This place is fantastic. According to their website they grind Creekstone Farms Premium Black Angus beef for their… Continue reading The Company Burger, New Orleans, LA Report #355

RiverShack Gretna, Gretna, LA Report #260

If you ignore the construction going on in front, this is a nice looking place.  I’m not sure what they’re doing with the construction, but I saw a bunch of potted plants out there, so landscaping is in the near future.  It’ll probably be nicer looking then! This place is located right on the Mississippi… Continue reading RiverShack Gretna, Gretna, LA Report #260
