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

Costera, New Orleans, LA Report #262

This is a Spanish restaurant.  In fact, on their website they describe themselves as a “coastal Spanish restaurant”.  I guess maybe in Spain they differentiate between coastal and other types of Spanish food.  Either way, we don’t have a lot of Spanish restaurants in New Orleans so I was excited about eating here. The large… Continue reading Costera, New Orleans, LA Report #262

The Blue Crab, New Orleans, LA Report #257

I love dining in this area.  The restaurants around here are built up high on top of wooden pilings, so they have a nice view of Lake Pontchartrain.  This one is located right next to a big, beautiful, chain restaurant named Landry’s Seafood House.  Landry’s is closer to the lake with a better view, but… Continue reading The Blue Crab, New Orleans, LA Report #257

I’ve heard people talk about how good the tacos were… Continue reading The Rum House, New Orleans, LA Report #255

La Boca, New Orleans, LA Report #253

I’ve been wanting to try this place for a long time.   It’s an Argentine Steakhouse that I’ve heard many good things about.  We were in the steak mood so we headed on over! We decided on: And the food: First they brought us a nice little bread basket with some olive oil.  Square pieces… Continue reading La Boca, New Orleans, LA Report #253

Parkway Bakery & Tavern, New Orleans, LA Report #249

If I told a fellow New Orleanian I had never been here, their response would be, “You’re kidding, right?  It’s that popular a po-boy shop.  And very old. Established in 1911. I normally eat healthy during the week and hit the gym every day, so I don’t balloon up to 300 pounds, but there was… Continue reading Parkway Bakery & Tavern, New Orleans, LA Report #249
