Bistro Orleans, Metairie, LA Report #404

A friend told me this place was good. I decided to come to see if she was right. She was! Nice looking place. As soon as you walk in the door you’ll see the oyster bar. I noticed there were some fresh shucked raw oysters sitting on ice right up to the edge of the… Continue reading Bistro Orleans, Metairie, LA Report #404

Ajun Cajun, New Orleans, LA Report #397

This place describes their food as authentic Japanese food with a hint of Cajun spice. That intrigued me, so I put it on my list of restaurants I wanted to try some time back. Then last night I saw a glowing review of it online, which pushed me to get in here today for lunch.… Continue reading Ajun Cajun, New Orleans, LA Report #397

Frostop, Metairie, LA Report #376

Even though I’m WAYYYYY to young to remember 1950 style diners, I love going to them. I love the old fashioned decor and the 1950’s music they play to match. I’ve seen Frostops around New Orleans all my life and had no idea if it was a national, or local restaurant chain. After a quick… Continue reading Frostop, Metairie, LA Report #376

Gattuso’s, Gretna, LA Report #371

This place is located in Old Gretna, also knows as the Historic District of Gretna. The city of Gretna is located on the Westbank of the Mississippi River.

Bienvenue, Harahan, LA Report #348

This place is located in Harahan, which is a small city just west of New Orleans.

So in the name of earning reward points towards a free… Continue reading Bienvenue, Harahan, LA Report #348

Hooks, Terrytown, LA Report #337

I have a confession to make. I sometimes eat fast food fried chicken. There. I said it. Felt good to get that off my chest. So I went out to get some to bring home for dinner. For some reason the door was locked so you couldn’t go inside, and there were about 10 cars… Continue reading Hooks, Terrytown, LA Report #337

Rosie’s On The Roof, New Orleans, LA Report #317

This is my 4th COOLinary dinner of the 2020 season.  First was Coterie NOLA, next was The Pelican Club, then GW Fins.  All of them were great.  Tonight I was looking to make it 4 for 4. If you come to New Orleans you really should visit The National WWII Museum.  This restaurant is located… Continue reading Rosie’s On The Roof, New Orleans, LA Report #317

Bear’s Poboys, Metairie, LA Report #287

This place is technically called Bear’s Poboys at Gennaro’s because it’s in the same building as a very old Metairie bar that carries that name.  It was also called that to differentiate them from their other location on Veterans Blvd, which sadly closed down due to this Coronavirus pandemic. We had to sit outside today,… Continue reading Bear’s Poboys, Metairie, LA Report #287

Chap’s Chicken, Metairie, LA Report #285

Chap’s is located in a very short strip mall on the side of a convenience store.  In fact, you can say it’s part of the store.  You can walk from the store into the restaurant, and vice versa.  That comes in handy if you want to grab a beer or an ICEE to go with… Continue reading Chap’s Chicken, Metairie, LA Report #285
