Bravo, Metairie, LA Report #178

  We tried to go to a restaurant near this place and there was an hour wait for a table.  I was too hungry to wait an hour.  I get grumpy when I get hungry.  And mean.  So we started driving around aimlessly not knowing where we were going to eat dinner but knowing it… Continue reading Bravo, Metairie, LA Report #178

Los Jefes, Metairie, LA Report #173

  The Super Bowl is the day after tomorrow.  Being a native New Orleanian and diehard Saints fan, I’m still depressed.  If you don’t know why, what rock have you been under?  It was just the worst thing not only to happen in NFL history, but in WORLD history! Anyway, being depressed or not I… Continue reading Los Jefes, Metairie, LA Report #173

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

  I was perusing Tom Fitzmorris’ website and saw the ad pictured above for this place.  I remember decades ago I was going to Jacques-Imo’s for the first time so I called Tom’s radio show and asked him what I should try.  He told me fried chicken.  I thought he was crazy.  Go to a… Continue reading Porter & Luke’s, Metairie, LA Report #154

Café B, Metairie, LA Report #146

  My birthday was last month and I got an email from the Ralph Brennan Restaurant Group offering me a free dessert for my birthday!  It’s the least they could do after all I’ve done for them.  They listed Cafe B, the Red Fish Grill and Ralph’s On The Park as the participating restaurants.  I… Continue reading Café B, Metairie, LA Report #146

Bonefish Grill, Metairie, LA Report #137

Now, you may ask, “Blaine, living in a city like New Orleans, with all the fresh seafood and fine dining options, why in the world would you go to eat at a chain restaurant”?  Simple.  Their food is great!  And when a place has a pepper AND salt grinder on the table, you know it’s… Continue reading Bonefish Grill, Metairie, LA Report #137

Andrea’s, Metairie, LA Report #120

  Andrea’s is located on a back street, a block off of the very busy Causeway Blvd.  You wouldn’t run across the place unless you were looking for it.  To guide you to it there’s a huge red sign right on Causeway which is lit up impressively at night. The place is beautiful, complete with… Continue reading Andrea’s, Metairie, LA Report #120
