The Reef, Biloxi, MS Report #512

This was my final stop on my little Mississippi Gulf Coast getaway. When I first looked at this place I thought, “Wow, this joint is huge”! But it’s really not as big as it looks. At first you think it’s three stories, but the first floor is nothing but space. That’s reserved for the storm… Continue reading The Reef, Biloxi, MS Report #512

Mandina’s Restaurant, New Orleans, LA Report #507

This place has been around a long time. In fact, it’ll make its 100th birthday in a decade. I haven’t been here since back in the early 1990’s. A friend of mine and I used to work in the area and spent many a night after work closing down the bar here. Around that same… Continue reading Mandina’s Restaurant, New Orleans, LA Report #507

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

The Court Of Two Sisters, New Orleans, LA Report #500

Report #500. When I started doing these blogs, I never imagined I’d get here. And I’m sure the few of y’all that read my work didn’t think so either, considering the rubbish I put out! But a couple things helped me get here. I keep not dying and I love eating, so the numbers keep… Continue reading The Court Of Two Sisters, New Orleans, LA Report #500

Mr. B’s Bistro, New Orleans, LA Report #481

Decided to venture into the French Quarter today for a Father’s Day Brunch at Mr. B’s Bistro. One thing I hate about coming into the French Quarter is parking. That’s not a problem here. There’s a parking garage right behind the restaurant. It’s located at 721 Iberville St., and you can park there for just… Continue reading Mr. B’s Bistro, New Orleans, LA Report #481

Segnette Landing Restaurant, Westwego, LA Report #480

Besides being an expert eater, I also happen to be a pretty good cook. I’m cooking a chicken dish that also calls for shrimp. About the only time I drive down to Westwego is to go to this place we call the shrimp lot. It’s a big parking lot with seafood vendors on both sides.… Continue reading Segnette Landing Restaurant, Westwego, LA Report #480

Marigny Brasserie, New Orleans, LA Report #467

This place is only a couple blocks outside of the French Quarter. The last time I came here was with my daughter, who was in high school at the time. She’s now in her 30’s. That’s how long it’s been. Not sure why I haven’t been here in so long, because we loved the place!… Continue reading Marigny Brasserie, New Orleans, LA Report #467

Augie’s Restaurant, Harahan, LA Report #440

We had no intention of stopping at here for lunch. We were driving along headed to do some Christmas shopping, saw this place, realized we were hungry, so we stopped in. Beautiful place!

Deanie’s Seafood, Metairie, LA Report #427

This place is pretty famous. So famous, as you can see in my pictures above, even Santa Claus eats here! He looks pretty stuffed. Probably slammed down about 10 bowls of gumbo to knock that North Pole chill off of him. Deanie’s has been serving seafood to the folks in the New Orleans area for… Continue reading Deanie’s Seafood, Metairie, LA Report #427
