Today’s Ketch Seafood, Chalmette, LA Report #540

Yesterday for lunch we had fried seafood on the brain, so we headed to Deanie’s seafood in Bucktown. We ended up getting sidetracked and having an excellent lunch at Station 6 instead. Today we decided to scratch that fried seafood itch. This place is located down in St. Bernard Parish. I’ve had several people tell… Continue reading Today’s Ketch Seafood, Chalmette, LA Report #540

Palmettos On The Bayou, Slidell, LA Report #523

I knew I’d be in Slidell, LA., today, so earlier this week I asked folks in an online food group where I should eat. This was overwhelmingly the suggestion I got. I decided to take their advice. From the outside the place looks like a little shack. But it’s funny. Just like every morning when… Continue reading Palmettos On The Bayou, Slidell, LA Report #523

Charles Seafoods, Harahan, LA Report #521

I’ve driven past this place for years, and for some reason it caught my eye. I thought it looked like the kind of hole in the wall neighborhood joint where you get great food. So I kept saying one day I’d have to stop and try them out. Then on September 17th, I was in… Continue reading Charles Seafoods, Harahan, LA Report #521

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
