Herbsaint, New Orleans, LA Report #240

If you want to venture down to the Central Business District, this place is worth a stop.  It’s in walking distance of the Word War II Museum and the Superdome. Classy looking place.  As soon as you walk in you’ll see a basket full of boxes of Herbsaint matches.  You can help yourself.  What’s classier… Continue reading Herbsaint, New Orleans, LA Report #240

The Vintage, New Orleans, LA Report #239

I heard about this place because of their beignets.  But they have other food too, so we decided to come here for dinner.  Seems this place is a bar first, and a restaurant second.  I could be wrong about that, but the drink menu is longer than the food menu.  I’m not a drinker, but… Continue reading The Vintage, New Orleans, LA Report #239

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.

Johnny’s Po-Boys, New Orleans, LA Report #236

Pascal’s Manale, New Orleans, LA Report #235

I love going to old, New Orleans restaurants.  Since this one has been in operation since 1913 I think it qualifies!  This is said to be the restaurant that invented a dish called BBQ Shrimp.  BBQ Shrimp has nothing to do with BBQ sauce.  It normally consist of large, unpeeled, head on shrimp, cooked in… Continue reading Pascal’s Manale, New Orleans, LA Report #235

Gris-Gris, New Orleans, LA Report #232

If you were born and raised in New Orleans, like me, you know what Gris-Gris means.  If you don’t, I was nice enough to include the definition for you.  No need to thank me.  But here it can also mean great food, because everything we had was fantastic. If you like the great outdoors, they… Continue reading Gris-Gris, New Orleans, LA Report #232

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
