Acropolis On Freret, New Orleans, LA Report #345

I looked up the word “Acropolis”. It’s defined as, “A citadel or fortified part of an ancient Greek city, typically built on a hill”. I guess that would imply this is a Greek restaurant. Their website says they serve food from the Mediterranean region. After looking at the menu, it’s obviously a pretty wide swath… Continue reading Acropolis On Freret, New Orleans, LA Report #345

Shyan’s, Metairie, LA Report #311

A very dear friend of mine told me about this place.  She said she came here with her husband to pick up some food, and saw a worker at the restaurant carrying a dead lamb in for butchering.  She was traumatized. Well, to me a place that butchers their own animals means fresher meat!  But… Continue reading Shyan’s, Metairie, LA Report #311

Shaya, New Orleans, LA Report #164

  I’ve heard good things about this place and I see why.  Nice looking place.  They use oak in their wood burning oven, and serve their pita breads straight from it to your table so they’re so hot they burn your hands.  It doesn’t get any fresher than that!  And don’t worry about saving some… Continue reading Shaya, New Orleans, LA Report #164

Sahara Café, Gretna, LA Report #141

  My all time favorite place for Middle Eastern food is Lebanon’s Café (Report #95).  Living on the Westbank though, sometimes I hate driving all the way uptown for it.  I’ve heard some good things about Sahara Café, which is about 5 minutes from my house, so it was time to give them a try.… Continue reading Sahara Café, Gretna, LA Report #141
