Akira Sushi & Hibachi, Metairie, LA Report #273

This little area of Metairie is called Fat City.  Pick a cuisine, and you can find a restaurant around here that offers it.  The ones I’ve been to around here are Drago’s, Los Jefes, Bravo, Pho Michael, PF Chang’s and Todd’s Frozen Yogurt.  That represents Creole/Seafood, Mexican, Italian, Vietnamese, Chinese and a place for dessert. … Continue reading Akira Sushi & Hibachi, Metairie, LA Report #273

Carrabba’s Italian Grill, Metairie, LA Report #263

A lot of people avoid chain restaurants because they don’t equate them with quality food.  If that was a rule, this place is definitely an exception to it!  From the wood burning pizza ovens to the house made salad dressing, this place is pretty good! Last time I went to a Carrabba’s was about 10… Continue reading Carrabba’s Italian Grill, Metairie, LA Report #263

Todd’s Frozen Yogurt, Metairie, LA Report #251

We had just finished dinner a few blocks away at Drago’s and decided to stop in here for dessert.  Cute little place with a lot more than frozen yogurt, as the pictures attest to.  ‘Tis the season, so I sampled the frozen eggnog yogurt.  I love eggnog so I thought it was delicious!  If you… Continue reading Todd’s Frozen Yogurt, Metairie, LA Report #251

There’s… Continue reading Drago’s, Metairie, LA Report #250

Quarter View, Metairie, LA Report #244

This place is huge!  Standing across the street I could hardly get a picture of the whole building.  Inside there are several different dining rooms.  There was another large room where it seemed a special event was going on.  So if you’re in the market to rent a space, they can accommodate. I was wondering… Continue reading Quarter View, Metairie, LA Report #244

Little Tokyo, Metairie, LA Report #237

Long ago, when I was in my late 20’s, this was the first place I ever ate sushi in my life.  It was at a different location back then, but I see why they moved.  They have a lot more space in this location, including an area for Karaoke.  I asked our waitress when they… Continue reading Little Tokyo, Metairie, LA Report #237
