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

Brooklyn Pizzeria, Gulfport, MS Report #221

I spent 5 years in Gulfport, MS, drilling with the Navy Reserve.  During that time I discovered this place.  I love thin, crispy, New York style pizza, and this place does a good job with that.  We decided to stop in for some before we headed back to New Orleans today. As soon as you… Continue reading Brooklyn Pizzeria, Gulfport, MS Report #221

Fat Boy’s Pizza, Metairie, LA Report #203

You can order any pizza by the slice, but even those… Continue reading Fat Boy’s Pizza, Metairie, LA Report #203

Theo’s Neighborhood Pizza, Harahan, LA Report #181

  Theo’s has four locations.  This is the Elmwood location,on Clearview Parkway in Harahan.  They have Root Beer Floats!  I like that.  They only serve thin crust pizzas, so don’t come here looking for a deep dish or pan style crust.  For an additional charge you can get gluten free crust if you’re into that… Continue reading Theo’s Neighborhood Pizza, Harahan, LA Report #181

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
