Twigs Bistro and Martini Bar, Spokane, WA Report #70

Through no fault of my own I ended up in Spokane, Washington. I have NEVER seen this much snow in my life! I think it was 1975 when it snowed enough in New Orleans that I was able to build a snowman using every bit of snow in my yard. I saw that much here… Continue reading Twigs Bistro and Martini Bar, Spokane, WA Report #70

Landry’s Seafood House, New Orleans, LA Report #26

Long ago on a visit here they talked me into joining their members club.  My birthday is this month so they emailed me a $25 dollar off certificate.  That’s like a free entree so I figured what the hell.  I’ll give them a visit. Forgot to take a pic of the inside of the place… Continue reading Landry’s Seafood House, New Orleans, LA Report #26

Legacy Kitchen, Gretna, LA Report #24

  There are five Legacy Kitchen locations.  This one technically is called “Legacy Kitchen, Steak + Chop” because as you can see on their menu they specialize in 28 day aged steaks and chops.  I’ve been to the location in Metairie and they only have two un-aged steaks on their menu.  I love the rustic… Continue reading Legacy Kitchen, Gretna, LA Report #24

VooDoo BBQ & Grill, Harvey, LA Report #23

MANHATTAN LOCATION PERMANENTLY CLOSED.  ST. CHARLES LOCATION OPEN   Pretty good BBQ at this place.  There are other locations, including one right on historic St. Charles Avenue.  I’ve been to that one too and the food is pretty consistent between these two locations. You wouldn’t expect to find good gumbo, or gumbo period at a… Continue reading VooDoo BBQ & Grill, Harvey, LA Report #23

Hoshun, New Orleans, LA Report #22

In my opinion this is the BEST Chinese Restaurant in New Orleans and every time I go there they reinforce that opinion.   A good thing is if you can’t decide between Chinese and Japanese they also have a sushi menu so you get the best of both worlds!  And they do both well. I’ve… Continue reading Hoshun, New Orleans, LA Report #22

The Creole Creamery, New Orleans, LA Report #19

Cute, clean little place with the feel of an old time ice cream parlor.  This is the Lakeview location so if you’re enjoying lunch or dinner in any one of the numerous restaurants in the area you may want to stop here for dessert.  There’s also a location uptown.  VERY IMPORTANT:  They ONLY take cash.… Continue reading The Creole Creamery, New Orleans, LA Report #19

MoPHo, New Orleans, LA Report #18

  Pho is a Vietnamese soup, and this place offers several different types of Pho.  As the name implies it’s Asian cuisine with numerous twists.  So straight to the food. Crispy Brussels Sprouts with MoPHo Mayo – Delicious.  Like a sriracha mayo for dipping. Shrimp and pork spring rolls – Just OK.  Peanut dipping sauce… Continue reading MoPHo, New Orleans, LA Report #18

********** PERMANENTLY CLOSED **********   If you’re in the mood for a great burger this is the place for you!  You can order a regular burger, which is a 5oz patty, or big, which is a 6oz patty.  Seems like the “big” should be bigger than one more ounce of meat, but that’s the way… Continue reading Smashburger, New Orleans, LA Report #17

LA 23 BBQ, Belle Chasse, LA Report #16

The place is called LA 23 BBQ because it’s on Louisiana Highway 23, also known as Belle Chasse Highway.  This is the highway that leads all the way down to the “toe” of the boot Louisiana is shaped like, mostly following the Mississippi River all the way down to the Gulf of Mexico.  You have… Continue reading LA 23 BBQ, Belle Chasse, LA Report #16

Ground Pati, Gretna, LA Report #13

Nice, casual place.  They start you out with free peanuts, which is always nice. The buffalo wings here are different.  You get hot, fresh, delicious fried wings, and buffalo sauce and either blue cheese or ranch dressing on the side to dip them in.  They’re great. There are many different burger options here.  My son… Continue reading Ground Pati, Gretna, LA Report #13
