The Vintage, New Orleans, LA Report #239

I heard about this place because of their beignets.  But they have other food too, so we decided to come here for dinner.  Seems this place is a bar first, and a restaurant second.  I could be wrong about that, but the drink menu is longer than the food menu.  I’m not a drinker, but… Continue reading The Vintage, New Orleans, LA Report #239

Little Korea BBQ, New Orleans, LA Report #207

I loved having Japanese BBQ at Gyu-Kaku, so I figured I’d give the Korean version a try.  I’ve actually never had Korean food.  A guy I used to work with, whose mother is Korean, recommended this place. If you want to grill your own food you can sit at a grill table, but you may… Continue reading Little Korea BBQ, New Orleans, LA Report #207

For my 200th report I knew I had to go somewhere special.  An old,… Continue reading Commander’s Palace, New Orleans, LA Report #200

Slice Pizzeria, New Orleans, LA Report #153

  From what I understand there used to be a few locations of Slice, but this one on St. Charles Ave. is the only one now.

Mr. John’s Steak House, New Orleans, LA Report #105

  Located on the historic St. Charles Avenue streetcar line, a local food critic named Tom Fitzmorris has called this the best steakhouse in New Orleans.  I decided to see for myself. To begin we ordered the Braised Pork Belly as an appetizer and a cup of Turtle Soup. Before our appetizers arrived they bought… Continue reading Mr. John’s Steak House, New Orleans, LA Report #105
