Dick & Jenny’s, New Orleans, LA Report #168

  If you’ve ever driven down Tchoupitoulas Street Uptown, you’ve probably noticed Dick & Jenny’s.  The building faces Tchoupitoulas St., but you enter on the side on Jena St., which proved to be a challenge for me.  When you walk down the side you’ll see a door in the middle of the building, with an… Continue reading Dick & Jenny’s, New Orleans, LA Report #168

Tony Mandina’s, Gretna, LA Report #166

  I can’t remember the last time I went to a restaurant that I could absolutely rave about, but this is it!  My new favorite Italian restaurant.  Even if I tried I couldn’t find anything to report negatively on after this dining experience. There’s ample off street parking, with an attendant to keep an eye… Continue reading Tony Mandina’s, Gretna, LA Report #166

Short Stop Poboys, Metairie, LA Report #158

  I was reading the holiday dining guide edition of Where Y’at magazine and saw an ad for this place.  The ad mentioned they offered over 30 different varieties of poboys in 6, 9 and 14 inch sizes.  Sounded great!  More variety and smaller sizes so I can try more than one.  We braved the stormy weather… Continue reading Short Stop Poboys, Metairie, LA Report #158

This place is located on Tulane Ave., right down the street from what used to be the Dixie Beer Brewery.  That’s the big red building with the kind of dome thing on top you see on the left in the first picture.  They started brewing beer in 1907, and continued all the way until the… Continue reading Avery’s On Tulane, New Orleans, LA Report #145

The Pelican Club, New Orleans, LA Report #142

If I had to rank my favorite restaurants in New Orleans this place would easily be in the top 5.  Everything here is excellent. Right now they are still running their Coolinary Menu, which is a three course meal, appetizer, entrée and dessert, with various options, for $39.  They also have a four course prix… Continue reading The Pelican Club, New Orleans, LA Report #142

Half Shell Oyster House, Gulfport, MS Report #140

I spent a few years in Gulfport when I was on active duty in the Navy.  Loving food as I do, I often asked locals where I could find good, New Orleans style, Creole food.  I was told Mary Mahoney’s in Biloxi was the best in the WORLD!  When I finally made it there I… Continue reading Half Shell Oyster House, Gulfport, MS Report #140
