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! Received a text from “NOLA Ready”, which puts out information about the city. They advised if… Continue reading Biaggi’s Ristorante Italiano, Ridgeland, MS Report #409

Tower Of Pizza, Metairie, LA Report #402

This place is on the very busy main drag through Metairie, so I’ve driven past it countless times. Tonight we happened to be in the pizza mood and in the area, so we decided to stop in. It’s located in a small strip mall right next to the Black & Gold and Purple & Gold… Continue reading Tower Of Pizza, Metairie, LA Report #402

Oak Oven, Harahan, LA Report #370

I live in New Orleans and haven’t dined in Harahan in a some time. These reports I do are hugely popular, and I don’t want to neglect my Harahan readers. I’m sure I’ve got at least a few million there! I keep a list of restaurants I want to try, and this place was on… Continue reading Oak Oven, Harahan, LA Report #370

Mona Lisa, New Orleans, LA Report #364

I was perusing one of my favorite foodie pages on social media and someone mentioned this place. I looked it up and read the reviews. People raved about it! And I was in the mood for Italian so we headed down to the French Quarter to give it a try. The sign outside is just… Continue reading Mona Lisa, New Orleans, LA Report #364

A Tavola Restaurant & Wine Bar, Metairie, LA Report #358

Not too long ago, the space this place is in was an Italian chain restaurant named Bravo!, which I really liked. I’m not sure why they closed down. The food was good and it seemed there were always plenty of customers in the restaurant. This restaurant just opened a couple months ago. As a rule,… Continue reading A Tavola Restaurant & Wine Bar, Metairie, LA Report #358

Ancora, New Orleans, LA Report #354

Last Monday we tried to go to Mark Twain’s for pizza, but they were closed! I didn’t know they were closed every Monday. I’ve been wanting pizza ever since. New Orleans isn’t a pizza town like New York or Chicago. And of course not like Italy. But I heard this place had a huge pizza… Continue reading Ancora, New Orleans, LA Report #354

Waffles On Maple, Metairie, LA Report #349

This place is called Waffles on Maple because it’s original location was on Maple St., in Uptown New Orleans. I went to that location once years ago, and the place was tiny. I mean so tiny I had to walk sideways past other customers to get through it. That location is permanently closed now. The… Continue reading Waffles On Maple, Metairie, LA Report #349

Acropolis On Freret, New Orleans, LA Report #345

I looked up the word “Acropolis”. It’s defined as, “A citadel or fortified part of an ancient Greek city, typically built on a hill”. I guess that would imply this is a Greek restaurant. Their website says they serve food from the Mediterranean region. After looking at the menu, it’s obviously a pretty wide swath… Continue reading Acropolis On Freret, New Orleans, LA Report #345

Isabella’s Pizzeria, Mandeville, LA Report #338

We love cutting down a real tree for Christmas. Today was opening day for our favorite Christmas tree farm, which happens to be located across Lake Pontchartrain, north of New Orleans. So we crossed the longest, continuous bridge over water in the world, the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway, and of course that made us hungry so… Continue reading Isabella’s Pizzeria, Mandeville, LA Report #338

Mark Twain’s Pizza Landing, Metairie, LA Report #316

This place has been around since 1985, so I guess they’re doing something right.  Cozy little joint, located in a strip mall in a neighborhood called Old Metairie, which is just west of New Orleans. I was in the mood for just pizza, but my dining partner noticed there was seafood gumbo on the menu,… Continue reading Mark Twain’s Pizza Landing, Metairie, LA Report #316
