White Cap Seafood Restaurant, Gulfport, MS Report #397

As I sometimes do, I escape New Orleans and head east to the beautiful beaches along the Mississippi Gulf Coast. This is a seafood restaurant that sits right on the beach. I’ve been here before, but it was so long ago I couldn’t remember if I liked it or not. Even though I ate a… Continue reading White Cap Seafood Restaurant, Gulfport, MS Report #397

Barrow’s Catfish, New Orleans, LA Report #393

This place is synonymous in New Orleans with fried catfish. It was originally opened in 1943 at a different location, and initially they only served fried catfish and potato salad. That menu expanded, but hurricane Katrina closed them down in 2005. After a long hiatus, they reopened at this location. Long ago (I’m talking the… Continue reading Barrow’s Catfish, New Orleans, LA Report #393

Frankie & Johnny’s, New Orleans, LA Report #391A

Located a stones throw from the Mississippi river, this place has been around since 1942. That’s a long time! I bet the sign hanging in front is older than me. Cozy place. When you walk in the first thing you see is the bar. If I lived in the neighborhood and was a drinker, I… Continue reading Frankie & Johnny’s, New Orleans, LA Report #391A

Trep’s, New Orleans, LA Report #365

I like the way this place is designed. Especially during this pandemic. Almost all of the seating is outdoor seating, most of it under tents. The area in front of the bar is kind of inside, but with the garage style doors wide open that’s basically outside too. Very nice on a beautiful day like… Continue reading Trep’s, New Orleans, LA Report #365

Etouffée, Covington, LA Report #360

It was just two weeks ago I crossed the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway for a delicious dinner at The Dakota. Well, here I am doing it again!

A few reports ago I mentioned a credit card I had, attached to a large hotel chain, was giving me reward points for dining at certain restaurants.

Being kind of hidden away in what I thought would have been the CBD/Warehouse… Continue reading Annunciation, New Orleans, LA Report #343
