Parran’s Po-Boys And Restaurant, Metairie, LA Report #86

Located in a little strip mall on Veterans Hwy. in Metairie, this is a great place for po-boy sandwiches.  Down south here the word “Parran” means Godfather and “Nannan” means Godmother.  A little tidbit of info if you didn’t know.  Plenty of seating with multiple dining rooms.  They also serve a lot more than po-boys… Continue reading Parran’s Po-Boys And Restaurant, Metairie, LA Report #86

The Galley Seafood Restaurant, Metairie, LA Report #83

I’ve been to The Galley several times in the past and love their food.  They’re proud of the fact they’ve been serving their soft shell crab and their catfish po-boy sandwiches at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival since 1977.  They even brag about it on the side of their hot sauce bottles, which… Continue reading The Galley Seafood Restaurant, Metairie, LA Report #83

Pho Michael, Metairie, LA Report #73

We’ve had some VERY cold weather in New Orleans lately so my mind has been on a bowl of hot soup for a week now, and one of my favorite is the Vietnamese, beef broth based soup, Pho.  I’ve heard some very good things about this place so I figured I’d head out to Metairie… Continue reading Pho Michael, Metairie, LA Report #73

Mooyah, Metairie, LA Report #67

  This is one of my favorite burger places.  Spacious, clean, well lit, downright pretty inside.  Big chalk wall for the kids to occupy themselves with.  Fast food type atmosphere with some premium type ingredients you can add to your burger like sliced avocado, blue cheese, applewood smoked bacon, grilled onions, sautéed mushrooms, fried onion… Continue reading Mooyah, Metairie, LA Report #67

Riccobono’s Peppermill, Metairie, LA Report #50

I’ve only been to this place for breakfast and that’s a good reason to come here.  Small bar, and when you see it packed with people drinking at 9:00 AM, you know you’re in New Orleans.  Or at least the metro area.  Also notice all the starters on the menu are alcoholic drinks. On prior… Continue reading Riccobono’s Peppermill, Metairie, LA Report #50

The Cheesecake Factory, Metairie, LA Report #49

This is a chain.  I’d never think about reviewing a chain like Applebee’s or Friday’s, but this place is special.  It’s a chain that doesn’t serve chain type food.  The food is great and the place is beautiful.  The menu is also VERY extensive.  Over 20 pages, so I couldn’t take pics of all of… Continue reading The Cheesecake Factory, Metairie, LA Report #49

Chef Ron’s Gumbo Stop, Metairie, LA Report #45

I’ve always said if you go somewhere to get gumbo, and it’s got tomatoes in it, they don’t know what they’re doing.  I have to give Chef Ron a pass on that.  He puts tomatoes in his gumbo for whatever reason and it’s still good.  In fact, if you want to know what real New… Continue reading Chef Ron’s Gumbo Stop, Metairie, LA Report #45
