Brick Oven Café, Kenner, LA Report #230

After a delicious Italian dinner last night at Venezia’s, followed by Italian desserts at Brocoto’s, you’d think I’d want a change.  No. We were in the mood for pizza, so why not make Italian food the theme for this weekend? I love this place.  The staff is always friendly and the menu pretty extensive.  We… Continue reading Brick Oven Café, Kenner, LA Report #230

Venezia, New Orleans, LA Report #228

New Orleans is a great place for Italian food.  Most Italian immigrants arrived here in the 1880’s from Sicily, and we’ve had a large Italian population ever since.  This place has been here since 1957.  You don’t survive in a food city like this for that long if you’re not good! And this place is… Continue reading Venezia, New Orleans, LA Report #228

Beautiful place.  I love the open kitchen.  Let’s you see if they drop your chicken leg on the floor and put it back on your plate! We decided on: And the food: My dining partner wanted the chicken, which didn’t come with a side.  My Osso Bucco came with hominy, which I’m not a fan… Continue reading Josephine Estelle, New Orleans, LA Report #210

Ditali’s, Harvey, LA Report #175

  My dining partner and I were in the mood for pizza.  I’m ashamed to admit it, but we were headed to Sicily’s Pizza.  That’s right.  The cheap, buffet chain that puts out all you can eat pizza and a few other things.  They happened to be closed.  Maybe the good Lord was looking out… Continue reading Ditali’s, Harvey, LA Report #175

Porter & Luke’s, Metairie, LA Report #154

  I was perusing Tom Fitzmorris’ website and saw the ad pictured above for this place.  I remember decades ago I was going to Jacques-Imo’s for the first time so I called Tom’s radio show and asked him what I should try.  He told me fried chicken.  I thought he was crazy.  Go to a… Continue reading Porter & Luke’s, Metairie, LA Report #154
