Restaurant R’evolution, New Orleans, LA Report #502

Still dining my way through COOLinary month. When I saw the menu at this place I had to have it! I even had it planned out. 1st course short rib boudin, 2nd course wild boar pasta, or maybe the lamb shank, and 3rd course an ice cream stuffed eclair. Sadly, it wasn’t to be.

Restaurant Cote, Slidell, LA Report #488

I spent the weekend in Slidell to attend some job training. Thanks to a friend who lives nearby, I discovered this little strip of restaurants in Olde Towne Slidell some time ago.

Randazzo’s Family Restaurant, Metairie, LA Report #483

A few nights ago I did something I hadn’t done in years. Looked at the restaurant section in Groupon. I used to do it pretty often to get ideas on new places to try, plus it saves you some money. Nothing wrong with that! There was a deal in there for this place. I bought… Continue reading Randazzo’s Family Restaurant, Metairie, LA Report #483

The Crazy Italian, New Orleans, LA Report #475

The last time I was in this place it was Chap’s Chicken, but they ended up moving to Metairie. I liked the fact this space is attached to a convenience store.

Normally when I go to restaurants that have more than one location, I don’t do a separate report for each location. I just add to the original report I did on the first one I went to.

Biaggi’s Ristorante Italiano, Ridgeland, MS Report #409

Well, I’m still exiled in the Jackson, Mississippi area after Hurricane Ida hit New Orleans. Funny thing is if you notice the cloudy, rainy skies in the first two pictures above, that’s because now Tropical Storm Ida is here!
