Impastato’s, Metairie, LA Report #386

To all you fathers out there, HAPPY FATHER’S DAY! Since I spawned a few kids myself I figured SOMEONE owed me a free lunch. And I was right. They even let me chose the place I wanted to go! This restaurant is normally closed on Sundays, but opened today for Father’s Day. Looking at their… Continue reading Impastato’s, Metairie, LA Report #386

Vinnie’s Caddyshack Bar & Grill, Metairie, LA Report #385

This is a place I never should have found. It’s located on a back street in Metairie. I don’t live anywhere near that area. Also, I’m not a drinker, so I’m really not into the bar scene. That being said, the last bar and grill type place I went to, called Table & Tap, was… Continue reading Vinnie’s Caddyshack Bar & Grill, Metairie, LA Report #385

Frostop, Metairie, LA Report #376

Even though I’m WAYYYYY to young to remember 1950 style diners, I love going to them. I love the old fashioned decor and the 1950’s music they play to match. I’ve seen Frostops around New Orleans all my life and had no idea if it was a national, or local restaurant chain. After a quick… Continue reading Frostop, Metairie, LA Report #376

Caffe! Caffe!, Metairie, LA Report #372

I have a very dear friend, much older than me, who appreciates the finer things in life. But totally unlike me, she’s filthy rich, so she can afford them. She’s so rich she could have lobster and foie gras sandwiches, with imported Russian caviar mayonnaise, served on gold infused French bread, with fried white truffle… Continue reading Caffe! Caffe!, Metairie, LA Report #372

Pokéworks, Metairie, LA Report #367

The word for what’s served here is pronounced “poh-KAY”, and rhymes with “okay”. I looked it up to see what the definition was and found, “jab or prod (someone or something), especially with one’s finger”. I quickly realized I looked up POKE, and corrected that. Poke is, “diced raw fish served either as an appetizer… Continue reading Pokéworks, Metairie, LA Report #367

Nor Joe Import Co., Metairie, LA Report #366

This place isn’t actually a restaurant, but an importing company. According to their website they import goods from various countries, but it looks like Italy is their favorite. I love buying imported goods. I could spend a fortune in this place. All that being said, they do serve some food, which is why we came… Continue reading Nor Joe Import Co., Metairie, LA Report #366

Tic Toc Café, Metairie, LA Report #361

I’m always on the hunt for new breakfast spots. This is one of those places I’ve driven past a hundred times, and for some reason I never considered stopping in to eat. Today was the day to give them a try. Pretty small place. They’re open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. That’s… Continue reading Tic Toc Café, Metairie, LA Report #361

Carreta’s Grill, Metairie, LA Report #359

Today I had my taxes done. It’s a dark day. Always is. I always have to pay. As tradition has it, we always go to eat afterwards. It’s one of the few things that makes me feel better that’s legal. Way back in Report #334, I explained that I was going to restaurants on this… Continue reading Carreta’s Grill, Metairie, LA Report #359

A Tavola Restaurant & Wine Bar, Metairie, LA Report #358

Not too long ago, the space this place is in was an Italian chain restaurant named Bravo!, which I really liked. I’m not sure why they closed down. The food was good and it seemed there were always plenty of customers in the restaurant. This restaurant just opened a couple months ago. As a rule,… Continue reading A Tavola Restaurant & Wine Bar, Metairie, LA Report #358

Table & Tap 5216, Metairie, LA Report #351

I ended up in a conversation about restaurant appetizers with a friend on social media who knows good food. She mentioned this place served avocado fries which she described as, “da bomb”! That’s means they’re very good for all you people that aren’t as hip as me. That was all I needed to hear. Ever… Continue reading Table & Tap 5216, Metairie, LA Report #351
