Bistro Orleans, Metairie, LA Report #404

A friend told me this place was good. I decided to come to see if she was right. She was! Nice looking place. As soon as you walk in the door you’ll see the oyster bar. I noticed there were some fresh shucked raw oysters sitting on ice right up to the edge of the… Continue reading Bistro Orleans, Metairie, LA Report #404

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.

A few reports ago I mentioned a credit card I had, attached to a large hotel chain, was giving me reward points for dining at certain restaurants.

Black Velvet Oyster Bar & Grill, Buras, LA Report #324

Don’t ask how I ended up way down in Buras, Louisiana. The third picture above shows where it is.

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

Drago’s, Metairie, LA Report #250

This place is great.  They’re famous in New Orleans as the originators of Charbroiled Oysters.  Oysters on the half shell, grilled over an open flame, while slathered with an herbed garlic butter.  As they grill, the melted butter drips down into the fire causing huge flare ups, which gives them a nice smoky flavor. There’s… Continue reading Drago’s, Metairie, LA Report #250
