Bruno’s Tavern, New Orleans, La. Report #42

A local food critic named Tom Fitzmorris always advised against buying Groupons to go to restaurants.  I have no idea why.  I’ve discovered SOOOOO many good restaurants through Groupon!  And what’s wrong with getting your food at a discount?  The restaurant put themselves on Groupon!  I didn’t.  I just always make sure to tip on… Continue reading Bruno’s Tavern, New Orleans, La.

Newk’s Eatery, Mobile, Al. Report #38

A Navy friend first introduced me to Newk’s years ago in Gulfport, Mississippi.  I had never heard of the place since there are none in New Orleans.  The nearest one to New Orleans is Baton Rouge, La.  There’s a bunch in Mississippi and lo and behold I found one in Alabama. This place is perfect… Continue reading Newk’s Eatery, Mobile, Al. Report #38

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

Tout de Suite Cafe’, New Orleans, La. Report #8

Cute little place in historic Algiers Point on the Westbank.   Interesting decor.  They have a lunch menu but I’ve never even looked at it because I come here for one thing and one thing only.  Breakfast!  I love lox but have never tried their open face lox on bagel with cream cheese, tomato, red… Continue reading Tout de Suite Cafe’, New Orleans, La.

DiMartino’s, New Orleans, La. Report #5

  This is the Algiers (Westbank) location, which is the only one I’ve ever been to.  Everything I’ve tried here has been great.  They’re known for their muffulettas and they do a great job with them.  They are made to order, come out heated perfectly, with the bread nice and toasty and the cheese just… Continue reading DiMartino’s, New Orleans, La.
