Golden Gate Bistro, New Orleans, LA Report #390

As of Friday last week I had never tried Peruvian food. At least not that I could remember. I rectified that by going to Tito’s Ceviche & Pisco. As of today, I had never tried Colombian food. I didn’t plan to fix that anytime soon but this place popped up on my radar. I pulled… Continue reading Golden Gate Bistro, New Orleans, LA Report #390

Red Fish Grill, New Orleans, LA Report #389

This restaurant is owned by the Ralph Brennan restaurant group. The Brennan’s are a well knows restaurant family here in New Orleans.

Cho Thai, New Orleans, LA Report #388

My niece, who just by virtue of being related to me knows food, recommended this place to me. My kids got wind of it, and the second Father’s Day rolled around, at midnight, I received a text. I had never received a gift card via text before, but that option is available for this place!… Continue reading Cho Thai, New Orleans, LA Report #388

Tito’s Ceviche & Pisco, New Orleans, LA Report #387

It’s restaurant week here in New Orleans! That time of year when participating restaurants put together prix-fixe menus of lunches for $25 or less, and dinners for $45 or less, to encourage people to get in there and try them out. It started Monday the 21st and ends this Sunday. Since I watch my diet… Continue reading Tito’s Ceviche & Pisco, New Orleans, LA Report #387

Impastato’s, Metairie, LA Report #386

To all you fathers out there, HAPPY FATHER’S DAY! Since I spawned a few kids myself I figured SOMEONE owed me a free lunch. And I was right. They even let me chose the place I wanted to go! This restaurant is normally closed on Sundays, but opened today for Father’s Day. Looking at their… Continue reading Impastato’s, Metairie, LA Report #386

Vinnie’s Caddyshack Bar & Grill, Metairie, LA Report #385

This is a place I never should have found. It’s located on a back street in Metairie. I don’t live anywhere near that area. Also, I’m not a drinker, so I’m really not into the bar scene. That being said, the last bar and grill type place I went to, called Table & Tap, was… Continue reading Vinnie’s Caddyshack Bar & Grill, Metairie, LA Report #385

Ming’s, New Orleans, LA Report #384

I love Chinese food, so I’m always willing to try a new place. It seems Chinese restaurants in New Orleans all have basically the same things on their menu. I’m always looking for that place that will wow me with something wonderful and different. I recently fell in love with Hong Minh, which doesn’t do… Continue reading Ming’s, New Orleans, LA Report #384

Doris Metropolitan, New Orleans, LA Report #383

It’s good to be back in New Orleans after dining across the Gulf Coast over last weekend. It’s always good to come home. Today, I had a serious workout in the gym. Lifted tons of weight! I believe the old saying that beef builds muscle, so I decided to get a good steak tonight. Whenever… Continue reading Doris Metropolitan, New Orleans, LA Report #383

Villaggio Grille, Orange Beach, AL Report #382

Another Orange Beach restaurant at The Wharf, right across the street from Yo Ho Rum & Tacos. I’ve been to this place couple times in the past and it is excellent. Food, service, everything. So we had to eat here for our last night out of town. It also happened to be our anniversary dinner!… Continue reading Villaggio Grille, Orange Beach, AL Report #382

Austons on 98, Miramar Beach, FL Report #381

My first time in Florida in years. There were two things that brought us here. The beautiful beaches and the fact I heard this place made a great lobster tacos, and I’m a lobster lover! Well, the beaches were PACKED. We couldn’t find a place to park to enjoy them, but worked up an appetite… Continue reading Austons on 98, Miramar Beach, FL Report #381
