Espiritu, New Orleans, LA Report #506

I was perusing restaurants online and this one got some pretty good reviews. It’s described as a, “Breezy, bohemian-style hangout serving Mexican classics like tacos & tortas, plus mezcal & tequila”. I had no idea what “bohemian-style” was, but it sounded good to me! So we came on in. Nice looking little place. I had… Continue reading Espiritu, New Orleans, LA Report #506

The Midway Pizza, New Orleans, LA Report #504

I heard this place specializes in New Orleans style deep dish pizzas. I didn’t know such a thing existed! I know Chicago is famous for them. I’ve never really been a deep dish guy. I like thin and crispy crust. But, if that’s what this place is known for, I figured I’d give it a… Continue reading The Midway Pizza, New Orleans, LA Report #504

Mint Modern Vietnamese, New Orleans, LA Report #503

Awhile back my son invited me to get this app called Upside. It gives you cash back when you buy gas at certain gas stations and eat at certain restaurants. He wasn’t looking out for me, though. His ulterior motive was he gets a monetary kickback every time I use the app, since I used… Continue reading Mint Modern Vietnamese, New Orleans, LA Report #503

Restaurant R’evolution, New Orleans, LA Report #502

Still dining my way through COOLinary month. When I saw the menu at this place I had to have it! I even had it planned out. 1st course short rib boudin, 2nd course wild boar pasta, or maybe the lamb shank, and 3rd course an ice cream stuffed eclair. Sadly, it wasn’t to be. More… Continue reading Restaurant R’evolution, New Orleans, LA Report #502

Trenasse, New Orleans, LA Report #499

If you’re walking around the New Orleans Central Business District looking for this restaurant, you won’t find it. You need to be looking for the InterContinental Hotel. It’s located on the first floor of that building. The main entrance to the restaurant (where you have to see the hostess to be seated), is located under… Continue reading Trenasse, New Orleans, LA Report #499

Clesi’s, New Orleans, LA Report #498

It’s COOLinary month here in New Orleans and this is my second meal. Had a good one last night at Charlie’s Steak House. When I was online perusing menus, the one for this place looked pretty good, so I had to get in here and give it a try. There isn’t much room at all… Continue reading Clesi’s, New Orleans, LA Report #498

Blaze Pizza, New Orleans, LA Report #497

I didn’t know this place existed. We came down here into the CBD to have the COOLinary lunch at Willa Jean. After waiting for a bit to be seated, we were told they weren’t doing the COOlinary lunch today! And they couldn’t tell us why. Well, we had to feed a parking meter to park… Continue reading Blaze Pizza, New Orleans, LA Report #497

Evangeline, New Orleans, LA Report #495

I was perusing the internet searching new restaurants to try, and this place caught my eye. Their website claims they have, “The French Quarter’s Best Cajun Cuisine”. Man, that’s quite a claim! So I had to do something I don’t do that often. Slide down into the bowels of the French Quarter and check them… Continue reading Evangeline, New Orleans, LA Report #495

Stuph’D Beignets & Burgers, New Orleans, LA Report #492

I’m pretty sure everyone knows what beignets are. Those wonderful pieces of fried dough sprinkled with powdered sugar. Thanks to the iconic CafĂ© du Monde, New Orleans is famous for them. This place takes beignets to the next level, serving savory ones as well as sweet. We decided to sample both. For the savory we… Continue reading Stuph’D Beignets & Burgers, New Orleans, LA Report #492
