Root Down, Denver, Co. Report #72

i Traveling home and I ended up with a long layover in Denver right at my favorite time of day. Dinner time! Saw this place so I stopped and looked at their menu. Looked like their intent was to take a different spin on foods so I figured I’d give them a try. I found… Continue reading Root Down, Denver, Co. Report #72

Post Street Craft Beer Ale House, Spokane, Wa. Report #71

Guess what? I’m still in Spokane, Washington. Guess what else? It’s still cold! But not snowing anymore thank God after the six inches we had yesterday. And lastly, guess the final thing.

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

Chubbie’s, New Orleans, La. Report #65

It’s hard to find a fried chicken joint that’s not part of some big chain like Popeye’s, KFC or Church’s, but on the Westbank of New Orleans there’s one, and it’s VERY good!  The line inside is a testament to that.  And Chubbie’s sells a lot more than fried chicken.  The only non-chicken food I’ve… Continue reading Chubbie’s, New Orleans, La.

Southside Café, Slidell, La. Report #58

    This place is in Slidell, Louisiana, which is about a 45 minute drive from my house in New Orleans depending on traffic.  It’s so good I’d gladly make the drive every week to eat there.  Not only have I never had a bad meal there, in maybe 5 visits I haven’t found one… Continue reading Southside Café, Slidell, La.

The Cheesecake Factory, Metairie, La. Report #49

This is a chain.  I’d never think about reviewing a chain like Applebee’s or Friday’s, but this place is special.  It’s a chain that doesn’t serve chain type food.  The food is great and the place is beautiful.  The menu is also VERY extensive.  Over 20 pages, so I couldn’t take pics of all of… Continue reading The Cheesecake Factory, Metairie, La.
