Trep’s, New Orleans, 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, Report #365

Mona Lisa, New Orleans, LA Report #364

I was perusing one of my favorite foodie pages on social media and someone mentioned this place. I looked it up and read the reviews. People raved about it! And I was in the mood for Italian so we headed down to the French Quarter to give it a try. The sign outside is just… Continue reading Mona Lisa, New Orleans, LA Report #364

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

Ancora, New Orleans, LA Report #354

Last Monday we tried to go to Mark Twain’s for pizza, but they were closed! I didn’t know they were closed every Monday. I’ve been wanting pizza ever since. New Orleans isn’t a pizza town like New York or Chicago. And of course not like Italy. But I heard this place had a huge pizza… Continue reading Ancora, New Orleans, LA Report #354

Poseidon, New Orleans, LA Report #353

Sushi for lunch today! This place is located on the bottom floor of a Condo/Apartment building in the Lower Garden District of New Orleans. Honestly, until today I never even knew it was in there. My dining partner is a fan of this place, and their Poseidon Roll. Nice looking restaurant. I guess the bar… Continue reading Poseidon, New Orleans, LA Report #353

Vessel NOLA, New Orleans, LA Report #350

Obviously, this building used to be a church. It was built in 1914. It’s been a restaurant as long as a I can remember, which is a long time. In fact, back in the 1970’s I went to high school within walking distance of this place. I always used to see it and think that… Continue reading Vessel NOLA, New Orleans, LA Report #350

Palm & Pine, New Orleans, LA Report #347

This restaurant is located on the northern edge of the French Quarter, on what was once the North Rampart of the original city of New Orleans. Because of that, the street it’s on is named North Rampart. I’ve heard great things about this place and have been wanting to try it for some time. My… Continue reading Palm & Pine, New Orleans, LA Report #347

Juan’s Flying Burrito, New Orleans, LA Report #344

This place has been slinging Mexican food in New Orleans since 1997. It’s pretty popular, so I can’t believe I’ve never been here! Their website says when they came into being they were loosely based on San Francisco Mission-style burrito joints, that were in vogue during the 1980’s and early 90’s. Well, tonight was my… Continue reading Juan’s Flying Burrito, New Orleans, LA Report #344
