Rizzuto’s, New Orleans, LA Report #362

The perfect way to end my, “one day I’m allowed to have a cheat meal during Lent”, day! A great meal at a nice family run restaurant. In fact, this place is so family run when I asked our waiter about a certain dish we had he said his mom was in the kitchen cooking… Continue reading Rizzuto’s, New Orleans, LA Report #362

Tic Toc Café, Metairie, LA Report #361

I’m always on the hunt for new breakfast spots. This is one of those places I’ve driven past a hundred times, and for some reason I never considered stopping in to eat. Today was the day to give them a try. Pretty small place. They’re open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. That’s… Continue reading Tic Toc Café, Metairie, LA Report #361

Etouffée, Covington, LA Report #360

It was just two weeks ago I crossed the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway for a delicious dinner at The Dakota. Well, here I am doing it again! A friend of mine who lives across the lake visited this restaurant and loved it. I looked up the menu online and knew I had to pop in for… Continue reading Etouffée, Covington, LA Report #360

Carreta’s Grill, Metairie, LA Report #359

Today I had my taxes done. It’s a dark day. Always is. I always have to pay. As tradition has it, we always go to eat afterwards. It’s one of the few things that makes me feel better that’s legal. Way back in Report #334, I explained that I was going to restaurants on this… Continue reading Carreta’s Grill, Metairie, LA Report #359

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

Daisey Mae’s, New Orleans, LA Report #357

I’ve been working right down the street from this place for years and never tried them. Until today. Apparently they’re known for their Bloody Mary’s. Having alcoholic drinks with breakfast isn’t just acceptable in New Orleans, but encouraged! If I was a drinker I would have given one a try. I love Crab Cake Benedict.… Continue reading Daisey Mae’s, New Orleans, LA Report #357

The Dakota, Covington, LA Report #356

There’s a local food critic named Tom Fitzmorris who has a radio show called “The Food Show”. It’s all about restaurants and food, and it’s been on the air here in New Orleans for over 30 years. That’s where I first herd about this restaurant many years ago. He raved about it. And he especially… Continue reading The Dakota, Covington, LA Report #356

The Company Burger, New Orleans, LA Report #355

I ate at this place maybe 5 years ago, before I started doing these reports. I had the lamb burger and loved it. No idea why I haven’t come back until today, but better late than never. This place is fantastic. According to their website they grind Creekstone Farms Premium Black Angus beef for their… Continue reading The Company Burger, New Orleans, LA Report #355

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

Poseidon, New Orleans, LA Report #353

Sushi for lunch today! This place is located on the bottom floor of a Condo/Apartment building in the Lower Garden District of New Orleans. Honestly, until today I never even knew it was in there. My dining partner is a fan of this place, and their Poseidon Roll. Nice looking restaurant. I guess the bar… Continue reading Poseidon, New Orleans, LA Report #353
