Ye Olde College Inn, New Orleans, LA Report #323

This is an old New Orleans restaurant that’s been around in one form or another since 1933. They actually have a garden across the street where they grow things to use in the restaurant for a farm to table experience. You can’t get any fresher than that! I told a fellow New Orleanian I had… Continue reading Ye Olde College Inn, New Orleans, LA Report #323

Desire Oyster Bar, New Orleans, LA Report #322

This is it! My last COOLinary meal of the 2020 season. I did pretty good. Had 6 of them! The other 5 were dinners. This was the only lunch. This restaurant is located on world famous Bourbon Street, in the French Quarter. It’s in the Royal Sonesta hotel, but there’s an entrance allowing you to… Continue reading Desire Oyster Bar, New Orleans, LA Report #322

Tommy’s Cuisine, New Orleans, LA Report #321

This is the last weekend of the 2020 COOLinary season, and I’ve done everything I can to enjoy it to the fullest! I’ve heard good things about this place for a long time, so we decided to have our last COOLinary dinner here. Nice looking restaurant.

Muriel’s Jackson Square, New Orleans, LA Report #320

This place is located in the heart of the French Quarter. The third picture above is Jackson Square, with St. Louis cathedral in the background. Probably one of the images most associated with New Orleans. Muriel’s is located right behind it. And right across the street from Jackson Square is the iconic beignet place, Café… Continue reading Muriel’s Jackson Square, New Orleans, LA Report #320

GW Fins, New Orleans, LA Report #315

The COOLinary season is in full swing.  I had my first COOLinary dinner at a place called Coterie, and then one at The Pelican Club.  This place has a great reputation, so my hopes for this third one was high. GW Fins doesn’t look like much from the outside, but inside it’s beautiful.  Fish is… Continue reading GW Fins, New Orleans, LA Report #315

Riccobono’s Panola St. Café, New Orleans, LA Report #312

This place is owned by the same folks that own Riccobono’s Peppermill and Café Navarre, so I knew it was going to be good.  It’s located on a back street in a residential neighborhood, so you’ve got to be looking for it to find it. Our waitress recommended the Boudin omelet.  It sounded good and… Continue reading Riccobono’s Panola St. Café, New Orleans, LA Report #312

Mr. Ed’s Oyster Bar & Fish House, New Orleans, LA Report #310

This place has been running a commercial on television for weeks advertising a fried seafood platter that included fried chicken.  And for weeks my mouth has been watering thinking of eating that!  Tonight was to be the night!  But things went horribly wrong. Pretty extensive menu.  With some great sounding dishes!  A food vendor at… Continue reading Mr. Ed’s Oyster Bar & Fish House, New Orleans, LA Report #310

Piccola Gelateria, New Orleans, LA Report #309

  We had just finished lunch at the High Hat Café, and it hit me this place is in the same block.  Some gelato for dessert sounded like a great idea! They have more than gelato.  They also serve crepes (sweet and savory) and flatbreads.  But we decided on a small pistachio and a small… Continue reading Piccola Gelateria, New Orleans, LA Report #309

High Hat Café, New Orleans, LA Report #308

I’ve heard good things about this place and have been wanting to get here for awhile.  Their website says they serve food from the Mississippi and Louisiana Delta, and catfish is the star of the menu! Unfortunately, neither of us were in the catfish mood.  We decided on the tamales, a cup of gumbo, and… Continue reading High Hat Café, New Orleans, LA Report #308

Frey, New Orleans, LA Report #306

  I was perusing a social media food group and someone asked, “Who has the best milkshakes and food to go with it”?  This place was mentioned a few times.  I had never heard of it so I looked them up.  A BBQ place with good milkshakes?  I was intrigued!  So we decided to pay… Continue reading Frey, New Orleans, LA Report #306
