Liuzza’s, New Orleans, LA Report #247

This place isn’t associated at all with the Liuzza’s near the Fairgrounds Race Course.  Totally different restaurant and owners. There’s a po-boy restaurant near here called Parkway Bakery & Tavern.  During the month of November they have a special Thanksgiving po-boy sandwich, with turkey, dressing and cranberry sauce on it.  They normally advertise it pretty… Continue reading Liuzza’s, New Orleans, LA Report #247

Quarter View, Metairie, LA Report #244

This place is huge!  Standing across the street I could hardly get a picture of the whole building.  Inside there are several different dining rooms.  There was another large room where it seemed a special event was going on.  So if you’re in the market to rent a space, they can accommodate. I was wondering… Continue reading Quarter View, Metairie, LA Report #244

Dry Dock Café, New Orleans, LA Report #243

The city of New Orleans spans both sides of the Mississippi River.  If there’s a street that would be considered our “Main Street”, it would be Canal Street, which runs from the river all the way to Lake Pontchartrain.  Canal St. also is the westside boundary of the French Quarter.  At the foot of Canal… Continue reading Dry Dock Café, New Orleans, LA Report #243

Herbsaint, New Orleans, LA Report #240

If you want to venture down to the Central Business District, this place is worth a stop.  It’s in walking distance of the Word War II Museum and the Superdome. Classy looking place.  As soon as you walk in you’ll see a basket full of boxes of Herbsaint matches.  You can help yourself.  What’s classier… Continue reading Herbsaint, New Orleans, LA Report #240

Johnny’s Po-Boys, New Orleans, LA Report #236

This place has been around since 1950, and it took me until 2019 to get there.  I’m ashamed of myself.  That’s unacceptable.  But, better late than never!  It’s located in the French Quarter and a very short walk from Jackson Square and the Café du Monde.  So if you’re in the Quarter you can have… Continue reading Johnny’s Po-Boys, New Orleans, LA Report #236

Gris-Gris, New Orleans, LA Report #232

If you were born and raised in New Orleans, like me, you know what Gris-Gris means.  If you don’t, I was nice enough to include the definition for you.  No need to thank me.  But here it can also mean great food, because everything we had was fantastic. If you like the great outdoors, they… Continue reading Gris-Gris, New Orleans, LA Report #232

Beef Connection, Gretna, LA Report #231

If you’re looking for this place at night, look hard, because that sign doesn’t light up.  Or if it does, it wasn’t lit up tonight. When you see this place it just strikes you how plain it is.  No ornate decorations or anything.  It’s just a simple, no nonsense, steakhouse, and that’s good enough for… Continue reading Beef Connection, Gretna, LA Report #231
