Trep’s, New Orleans, LA Report #365

I like the way this place is designed. Especially during this pandemic. Almost all of the seating is outdoor seating, most of it under tents. The area in front of the bar is kind of inside, but with the garage style doors wide open that’s basically outside too. Very nice on a beautiful day like… Continue reading Trep’s, New Orleans, LA Report #365

Vessel NOLA, New Orleans, LA Report #350

Obviously, this building used to be a church. It was built in 1914. It’s been a restaurant as long as a I can remember, which is a long time. In fact, back in the 1970’s I went to high school within walking distance of this place. I always used to see it and think that… Continue reading Vessel NOLA, New Orleans, LA Report #350

Juan’s Flying Burrito, New Orleans, LA Report #344

This place has been slinging Mexican food in New Orleans since 1997. It’s pretty popular, so I can’t believe I’ve never been here! Their website says when they came into being they were loosely based on San Francisco Mission-style burrito joints, that were in vogue during the 1980’s and early 90’s. Well, tonight was my… Continue reading Juan’s Flying Burrito, New Orleans, LA Report #344

Fullblast Brunch, New Orleans, LA Report #341

Back in Report #334, I explained how my rewards credit card gives me points for dining at certain restaurants. This one was on the list. Being located on a back street in a residential area, that’s the only way I would have found out about it! Nice looking little place. You can tell a lot… Continue reading Fullblast Brunch, New Orleans, LA Report #341

Bayou Bistro, New Orleans, LA Report #334

Let me tell you how I found out about this place. I have a rewards credit card for a popular hotel chain. Last month they sent me this email saying if you dine at certain participating restaurants and use their credit card, they’ll give you a bunch of reward points. NOLA Caye was on that… Continue reading Bayou Bistro, New Orleans, LA Report #334

Café Minh, New Orleans, LA Report #331

When I first heard of this place I thought it was a Chinese restaurant. It’s actually a Vietnamese restaurant, but besides the fact there’s Pho on the menu, it’s hard to tell. Their website describes the food as, “Saigon’s Southern Vietnamese flavors, modernized with influences from French and American cuisine; all made with the freshest… Continue reading Café Minh, New Orleans, LA Report #331

Mr. Ed’s Oyster Bar & Fish House, New Orleans, LA Report #310

This place has been running a commercial on television for weeks advertising a fried seafood platter that included fried chicken.  And for weeks my mouth has been watering thinking of eating that!  Tonight was to be the night!  But things went horribly wrong. Pretty extensive menu.  With some great sounding dishes!  A food vendor at… Continue reading Mr. Ed’s Oyster Bar & Fish House, New Orleans, LA Report #310

Frey, New Orleans, LA Report #306

I was perusing a social media food group and someone asked, “Who has the best milkshakes and food to go with it”?  This place was mentioned a few times.  I had never heard of it so I looked them up.  A BBQ place with good milkshakes?  I was intrigued!  So we decided to pay them… Continue reading Frey, New Orleans, LA Report #306

G’s Pizza, New Orleans, LA Report #282

Here’s another option open for pickup and delivery during these trying pandemic times.  A friend told me the Cajun Shrimp Pizza was to die for, and that was good enough for me!  I called in my order and headed on over. Pretty small place with inside and outside dining, that is, during normal times.  Looks… Continue reading G’s Pizza, New Orleans, LA Report #282

Piece Of Meat, New Orleans, LA Report #265

Besides being a restaurant, this pace is a pretty fancy butcher shop.  If you ever wondered where you could find different cuts of Wagyu beef, duck confit, smoked pork chops and duck breast, Mortadella and numerous hard, dry sausages, this is the place for you!  In fact, while we were in there a lady behind… Continue reading Piece Of Meat, New Orleans, LA Report #265
