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

Tony Mandina’s, Gretna, LA Report #166

  I can’t remember the last time I went to a restaurant that I could absolutely rave about, but this is it!  My new favorite Italian restaurant.  Even if I tried I couldn’t find anything to report negatively on after this dining experience. There’s ample off street parking, with an attendant to keep an eye… Continue reading Tony Mandina’s, Gretna, LA Report #166

La Providencia, Gretna, LA Report #160

Fuji Hana, Gretna, LA Report #151

  I don’t know if it’s just me, but it seems most sushi places are pretty much the same.  Same menu, same preparation, etc.  I’m always looking for something that makes one stand out from the others.  Tonight I figured I’d give Fuji Hana a try. Big, pretty place.  If you like hibachi tables there’s… Continue reading Fuji Hana, Gretna, LA Report #151

Sahara Café, Gretna, LA Report #141

  My all time favorite place for Middle Eastern food is Lebanon’s Café (Report #95).  Living on the Westbank though, sometimes I hate driving all the way uptown for it.  I’ve heard some good things about Sahara Café, which is about 5 minutes from my house, so it was time to give them a try.… Continue reading Sahara Café, Gretna, LA Report #141

Gretna Depot Café & Spirits, Gretna, LA Report #135

  Nice looking place, located inside what looks like a renovated double house, I guess in what you would be called Downtown Gretna, near the courthouse and post office.  If you come on a Saturday like I did you can also shop at the farmers market, which is right across the street!  A bunch of… Continue reading Gretna Depot Café & Spirits, Gretna, LA Report #135
