The Little Easy, New Orleans, LA Report #544

I heard this place had good pressed poboys. I checked out their menu online and saw this: Tamales? Cheese curds? And look at those crawfish nachos! I had to get in here! My greediness blinded me to the fact that time marches on and menus change. We got here and none of that was on… Continue reading The Little Easy, New Orleans, LA Report #544

Avo, New Orleans, LA Report #542

I get emails from this website called Eater New Orleans. They sent me this one entiltled, “Here are the tastiest Italian eats in New Orleans“. Click on that title if you want to see the list.

Budsi’s Authentic Thai, New Orleans, LA Report #538

This place is tucked away on a back street in the Marigny neighborhood of New Orleans. I never would have known it was here, but my daughter has a habit of looking at my restaurant reports, finding a place I’ve never been, and buying me a gift certificate for it for Christmas. One for this… Continue reading Budsi’s Authentic Thai, New Orleans, LA Report #538

Fritai, New Orleans, LA Report #536

This is a Haitian joint. There aren’t many of those in New Orleans. According to their website they serve Haitian Street Food. I was looking forward to trying that!

Hangout Ramen, New Orleans, LA Report #532

It’s been pretty warm here in New Orleans. I’m talking 80 degree temps in December. But that’s about to change. It’s cold right now by our standards. 48 degrees as I’m writing this. But by Christmas it’ll be in the 20’s. That’s very rare, bone chilling cold to us New Orleanians! So I need to… Continue reading Hangout Ramen, New Orleans, LA Report #532

Nirvana Indian Cuisine, New Orleans, LA Report #531

I don’t travel to uptown New Orleans a lot, but this is my second time eating in an uptown restaurant this week. This place has been around since 1982. That’s a long time! That means they must be doing something right. I ate here only once, back when I was in college not too far… Continue reading Nirvana Indian Cuisine, New Orleans, LA Report #531

Brigtsen’s Restaurant, New Orleans, LA. Report #529

This place is located uptown in the Riverbend area of New Orleans. It’s in a traditional, old New Orleans shotgun style house. I love that homey feel. Like you’re dining in someone’s house. You get that feeling even when you go into the restroom! When you walk in, you’ll see a long hallway that runs… Continue reading Brigtsen’s Restaurant, New Orleans, LA. Report #529

Fogo de Chão, New Orleans, LA Report #520

This place is one of those Brazilian Churrascarias. It’s a chain with numerous locations in Brazil and the United States.

Windowsill Pies, New Orleans, LA Report #519

After a delicious lunch at La Patrona, we decided to stop here for dessert. Never been to a pie specialty shop before. I like pie. I was hoping I’d be happy. In the end, I was. You can buy any pie by the slice. Online I saw they had a Bananas Foster pie. I was… Continue reading Windowsill Pies, New Orleans, LA Report #519

Dian Xin, New Orleans, LA Report #517

I’ve been hearing people rave about this place for a long time. There’s only one thing that’s kept me from trying it until now. It’s located in the French Quarter, and like many native New Orleanians I hate coming into the Frech Quarter. Mainly because of the parking situation. Luckily, when I came here for… Continue reading Dian Xin, New Orleans, LA Report #517
