La Boca, New Orleans, LA Report #253

I’ve been wanting to try this place for a long time.   It’s an Argentine Steakhouse that I’ve heard many good things about.  We were in the steak mood so we headed on over! We decided on: And the food: First they brought us a nice little bread basket with some olive oil.  Square pieces… Continue reading La Boca, New Orleans, LA Report #253

Parkway Bakery & Tavern, New Orleans, LA Report #249

If I told a fellow New Orleanian I had never been here, their response would be, “You’re kidding, right?  It’s that popular a po-boy shop.  And very old. Established in 1911. I normally eat healthy during the week and hit the gym every day, so I don’t balloon up to 300 pounds, but there was… Continue reading Parkway Bakery & Tavern, New Orleans, LA Report #249

Marcello’s, New Orleans, LA Report #248

We were overdue for some Italian food and decided on this place.  Excellent choice.  Everything was fantastic.  I’m not a wine drinker, but if you are, I’m pretty sure you’ll find the right bottle for you.  There were racks of wine all over the place.  Our waitress said we could roam around and just grab… Continue reading Marcello’s, New Orleans, LA Report #248

Liuzza’s, New Orleans, LA Report #247

This place isn’t associated at all with the Liuzza’s near the Fairgrounds Race Course.  Totally different restaurant and owners. There’s a po-boy restaurant near here called Parkway Bakery & Tavern.  During the month of November they have a special Thanksgiving po-boy sandwich, with turkey, dressing and cranberry sauce on it.  They normally advertise it pretty… Continue reading Liuzza’s, New Orleans, LA Report #247

Dry Dock Café, New Orleans, LA Report #243

The city of New Orleans spans both sides of the Mississippi River.  If there’s a street that would be considered our “Main Street”, it would be Canal Street, which runs from the river all the way to Lake Pontchartrain.  Canal St. also is the westside boundary of the French Quarter.  At the foot of Canal… Continue reading Dry Dock Café, New Orleans, LA Report #243

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
