Bravo, Metairie, LA Report #178

  We tried to go to a restaurant near this place and there was an hour wait for a table.  I was too hungry to wait an hour.  I get grumpy when I get hungry.  And mean.  So we started driving around aimlessly not knowing where we were going to eat dinner but knowing it… Continue reading Bravo, Metairie, LA Report #178

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

Domenica, New Orleans, LA Report #150

  This is the Downtown location.  Domenica is located on the ground floor of the Roosevelt hotel.  There’s an entrance right on Baronne St., so you don’t have to go through the hotel, but you should!  It’s a beautiful, old, New Orleans hotel.  The famous and historic Sazerac bar, where New Orleans movers and shakers… Continue reading Domenica, New Orleans, LA Report #150

Adolfo’s, New Orleans, LA Report #148

  I have a new favorite Italian restaurant. If you’re walking through the 600 block of the bustling and popular Frenchmen St., you’ll see the sign for Adolfo’s Restaurant, and a red door.  If you open the door you’ll see a tiny bar.  Not a restaurant.  But, you’ll also see a staircase.  If you go… Continue reading Adolfo’s, New Orleans, LA Report #148

That’s Amore Pizzeria, New Orleans, LA Report #90

Today seemed like a good day for a Chicago deep dish pizza, so we headed to this place.  It’s located on St. Charles Ave., right on the historic St. Charles Streetcar Line, so you can watch the streetcars, “trolleys” to people who don’t know any better, pass by as you dine.  It’s the oldest continuously… Continue reading That’s Amore Pizzeria, New Orleans, LA Report #90
