Ming’s, New Orleans, LA Report #384

I love Chinese food, so I’m always willing to try a new place. It seems Chinese restaurants in New Orleans all have basically the same things on their menu. I’m always looking for that place that will wow me with something wonderful and different. I recently fell in love with Hong Minh, which doesn’t do… Continue reading Ming’s, New Orleans, LA Report #384

Doris Metropolitan, New Orleans, LA Report #383

It’s good to be back in New Orleans after dining across the Gulf Coast over last weekend. It’s always good to come home. Today, I had a serious workout in the gym. Lifted tons of weight! I believe the old saying that beef builds muscle, so I decided to get a good steak tonight. Whenever… Continue reading Doris Metropolitan, New Orleans, LA Report #383

Ok, let me explain how I ended up here. I was perusing Instagram and I saw the first picture below. You slap a lobster tail on top of anything you immediately get my attention!

The Backyard, New Orleans, LA Report #377

***** Stay tuned for a special BONUS report at the end! ***** I noticed this place a few months ago when we had an excellent Italian dinner at Rizzuto’s, which is right across the street.

Elizabeth’s, New Orleans, LA Report #369

I’ve been wanting to try this place for some time. We actually ended up in this neighborhood trying to eat at a different restaurant, but it was closed. According to Google it opened at noon, but they really opened at 4:00 PM. Never trust Google. I should have known better. Nice looking little place with… Continue reading Elizabeth’s, New Orleans, LA Report #369

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

The Velvet Cactus, New Orleans, LA Report #363

This is one of those places that you go to and wonder why you haven’t been there in so long. I love the place. If you miss their sign and you’re looking for the restaurant, the second picture is about all you’ll see. It’s tucked in under a bunch of trees of pretty much invisible.… Continue reading The Velvet Cactus, New Orleans, LA Report #363

Rizzuto’s, New Orleans, LA Report #362

The perfect way to end my, “one day I’m allowed to have a cheat meal during Lent”, day! A great meal at a nice family run restaurant. In fact, this place is so family run when I asked our waiter about a certain dish we had he said his mom was in the kitchen cooking… Continue reading Rizzuto’s, New Orleans, LA Report #362

The Company Burger, New Orleans, LA Report #355

I ate at this place maybe 5 years ago, before I started doing these reports. I had the lamb burger and loved it. No idea why I haven’t come back until today, but better late than never. This place is fantastic. According to their website they grind Creekstone Farms Premium Black Angus beef for their… Continue reading The Company Burger, New Orleans, LA Report #355
