Black Velvet Oyster Bar & Grill, Buras, LA Report #324

Don’t ask how I ended up way down in Buras, Louisiana. The third picture above shows where it is. The blue dot shows my current location in New Orleans, and the little red balloon where you almost run out of Louisiana to travel through is Buras. There’s not a lot to do in Buras. There’s… Continue reading Black Velvet Oyster Bar & Grill, Buras, LA Report #324

Ye Olde College Inn, New Orleans, LA Report #323

This is an old New Orleans restaurant that’s been around in one form or another since 1933. They actually have a garden across the street where they grow things to use in the restaurant for a farm to table experience. You can’t get any fresher than that! I told a fellow New Orleanian I had… Continue reading Ye Olde College Inn, New Orleans, LA Report #323

Muriel’s Jackson Square, New Orleans, LA Report #320

This place is located in the heart of the French Quarter. The third picture above is Jackson Square, with St. Louis cathedral in the background.

Mark Twain’s Pizza Landing, Metairie, LA Report #316

This place has been around since 1985, so I guess they’re doing something right.  Cozy little joint, located in a strip mall in a neighborhood called Old Metairie, which is just west of New Orleans. I was in the mood for just pizza, but my dining partner noticed there was seafood gumbo on the menu,… Continue reading Mark Twain’s Pizza Landing, Metairie, LA Report #316

High Hat Café, New Orleans, LA Report #308

I’ve heard good things about this place and have been wanting to get here for awhile.  Their website says they serve food from the Mississippi and Louisiana Delta, and catfish is the star of the menu! Unfortunately, neither of us were in the catfish mood.  We decided on the tamales, a cup of gumbo, and… Continue reading High Hat Café, New Orleans, LA Report #308

Prejean’s, Lafayette, LA. Report #301

The address for this restaurant list it in Lafayette, Louisiana, but it’s actually just north of Lafayette in the small town of Carencro, LA.  Don’t want to cheat them out of their credit for having this place!  If you’re heading down Interstate 10, just take I-49 North, and in a mere two miles you’re here.… Continue reading Prejean’s, Lafayette, LA. Report #301

Hard to believe this is report #300.  Each 100th report I make… Continue reading Galatoire’s, New Orleans, LA Report #300

Creole House Restaurant & Oyster Bar, New Orleans, LA Report #292

Located on the very western edge of the French Quarter, their website says they’re in the oldest building on Canal St.  There used to be a Wendy’s Hamburger restaurant in this building, but you’d never know it now.  Place looks really nice! So the name of the place is the Creole House.  I know a… Continue reading Creole House Restaurant & Oyster Bar, New Orleans, LA Report #292

Restaurant des Familles, Crown Point, LA Report #289

Crown Point, Louisiana, is a very short ride from New Orleans.  I live on the Westbank of New Orleans and it only took us about 20 minutes to get here.  It’s well worth the drive.  Beautiful place in a peaceful setting, with a dining room looking out over a swamp.  Last time I was here,… Continue reading Restaurant des Familles, Crown Point, LA Report #289
