The Original Fiorellas’ Cafe, New Orleans, LA Report #516

This area of New Orleans has had a few restaurants as long as I can remember. I used to eat at all of them when I lived and worked near here. But 25 years ago, I moved to the Westbank of New Orleans, so I hardly get to this area anymore. But I’ve heard several… Continue reading The Original Fiorellas’ Cafe, New Orleans, LA Report #516

Daiwa Sushi Bar & Japanese Cuisine, Metairie, LA Report #509

For months now we’ve been trying to eat at a place out here in Metairie called Fusion Café. A friend of mine told me they make a shrimp pho that’s delicious! The first time we tried to go there, according to their website they were open. When we got there they were closed. We ended… Continue reading Daiwa Sushi Bar & Japanese Cuisine, Metairie, LA Report #509

Blaze Pizza, New Orleans, LA Report #497

I didn’t know this place existed. We came down here into the CBD to have the COOLinary lunch at Willa Jean. After waiting for a bit to be seated, we were told they weren’t doing the COOlinary lunch today! And they couldn’t tell us why. Well, we had to feed a parking meter to park… Continue reading Blaze Pizza, New Orleans, LA Report #497

Happy Italian Pizzeria, Harahan, LA Report #476

This place is located on a main drag in Harahan, but the way it’s tucked away in a little strip mall you can drive past it and easily not notice it. Even though I don’t get down to Harahan often, I’m speaking from experience. Passed it many times and never noticed it was there. Turns… Continue reading Happy Italian Pizzeria, Harahan, LA Report #476

Boulevard American Bistro, Elmwood, LA Report #411

We didn’t plan to eat here tonight. But, we’re still dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Ida. Closed restaurants are abundant, and when you find an open one, odds are the menu will be limited. As this one was tonight. And then there’s the wait for a table. We were told it’d be an hour.… Continue reading Boulevard American Bistro, Elmwood, LA Report #411

Biaggi’s Ristorante Italiano, Ridgeland, MS Report #409

Well, I’m still exiled in the Jackson, Mississippi area after Hurricane Ida hit New Orleans. Funny thing is if you notice the cloudy, rainy skies in the first two pictures above, that’s because now Tropical Storm Ida is here! Received a text from “NOLA Ready”, which puts out information about the city. They advised if… Continue reading Biaggi’s Ristorante Italiano, Ridgeland, MS Report #409

Caffe! Caffe!, Metairie, LA Report #372

I have a very dear friend, much older than me, who appreciates the finer things in life. But totally unlike me, she’s filthy rich, so she can afford them. She’s so rich she could have lobster and foie gras sandwiches, with imported Russian caviar mayonnaise, served on gold infused French bread, with fried white truffle… Continue reading Caffe! Caffe!, Metairie, LA Report #372

The Milk Bar, New Orleans, LA Report #277

I love lamb.  When this place popped up on my radar I did what I always do.  Went online and looked at the menu.  They have THREE different lamb sandwiches.  One served on a Ciabatta bun with humus, a lamb po-boy, and a Thai one with sweet chili sauce and sour cream.  THAT WAS ALL… Continue reading The Milk Bar, New Orleans, LA Report #277

Jason’s Deli, Harvey, LA Report #272

I normally don’t review chain restaurants but I feel it’s my solemn duty to let my readers know where they can get some good food!  And after the actions of the manager when they made a slight error on our order, I knew I had to write a review and give them a shout out. … Continue reading Jason’s Deli, Harvey, LA Report #272

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

If you crave a huge pizza, this is the place for you.  You can get them so big they won’t fit on the table.  As you can see in the picture above, that’s no problem.  They’ll put it on a portable table for you. You can order any pizza by the slice, but even those… Continue reading Fat Boy’s Pizza, Metairie, LA Report #203
