Fury’s, Metairie, LA Report #245

Happy Halloween! For our Halloween dinner we decided on Fury’s.  Nothing scary about this place.  This family restaurant has been serving food in the New Orleans area since 1967.  The staff is very friendly and the food is excellent!

Quarter View, Metairie, LA Report #244

This place is huge!  Standing across the street I could hardly get a picture of the whole building.  Inside there are several different dining rooms.  There was another large room where it seemed a special event was going on.  So if you’re in the market to rent a space, they can accommodate. I was wondering… Continue reading Quarter View, Metairie, LA Report #244

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

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

Josephine Estelle, New Orleans, LA Report #210

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
