Liuzza’s, New Orleans, LA Report #247

This place isn’t associated at all with the Liuzza’s near the Fairgrounds Race Course.  Totally different restaurant and owners. There’s a po-boy restaurant near here called Parkway Bakery & Tavern.  During the month of November they have a special Thanksgiving po-boy sandwich, with turkey, dressing and cranberry sauce on it.  They normally advertise it pretty… Continue reading Liuzza’s, New Orleans, LA Report #247

Canal Street Bistro, New Orleans, LA Report #238

Someone who knows my love of food recommended this place.  I asked if there was a particular dish I should try, and she told me everything was good!  With a vote of confidence like that, I had to come check it out. Cute little place.  It’s like you’re dining in someone’s home.  They also have… Continue reading Canal Street Bistro, New Orleans, LA Report #238

Angelo Brocato, New Orleans, LA Report #229

We had an excellent Italian dinner at Venezia’s (previous report), and decided to walk one block to this place for dessert.  If you want real, Italian desserts in New Orleans, this is the place to go.  They’ve been perfecting their craft here since 1905, so I think they’ve had enough time to get their act… Continue reading Angelo Brocato, New Orleans, LA Report #229

Venezia, New Orleans, LA Report #228

New Orleans is a great place for Italian food.  Most Italian immigrants arrived here in the 1880’s from Sicily, and we’ve had a large Italian population ever since.  This place has been here since 1957.  You don’t survive in a food city like this for that long if you’re not good! And this place is… Continue reading Venezia, New Orleans, LA Report #228

Brown Butter, New Orleans, LA Report #194

This place popped up on my radar as a good place to have breakfast.  After eating there, I agree!  We decided on the Boudin Hash, Grits, Honey Cluck’n Biskit and the Poutine & Eggs.   And here was the food: Boudin is a pork and rice sausage.  They combined it with chopped potatoes to make… Continue reading Brown Butter, New Orleans, LA Report #194

Toups’ Meatery, New Orleans, LA Report #187

If you’re craving meat, this a great plate to go!  I don’t know any other place in the city that makes cracklins to order. They come to your table crisp and hot fresh out the fryer.  I know it takes a long time to make cracklins so I asked the waiter how this was possible. … Continue reading Toups’ Meatery, New Orleans, LA Report #187

Blue Oak BBQ, New Orleans, LA Report #147

  I love the way this place is laid out.  You walk in, grab a menu, order your food, then have a seat and they’ll bring it to your table.  You can sit inside in air conditioned comfort, or outside on a huge deck with bunch of picnic tables.  There are misting fans all over… Continue reading Blue Oak BBQ, New Orleans, LA Report #147
