Deanie’s Seafood, Metairie, LA Report #427

This place is pretty famous. So famous, as you can see in my pictures above, even Santa Claus eats here! He looks pretty stuffed. Probably slammed down about 10 bowls of gumbo to knock that North Pole chill off of him. Deanie’s has been serving seafood to the folks in the New Orleans area for… Continue reading Deanie’s Seafood, Metairie, LA Report #427

Jaeger’s Seafood and Oyster House, Jefferson, LA Report #426

This restaurant has been around since 1948. The third picture above was one of their restaurants in New Orleans, on Elysian Fields Ave. I grew up less than a mile from that one and we loved it. There was another location in New Orleans at West End. Both of those are long gone, but this… Continue reading Jaeger’s Seafood and Oyster House, Jefferson, LA Report #426

Tony Mandina’s, Gretna, LA Report #166

I can’t remember the last time I went to a restaurant that I could absolutely rave about, but this is it!  My new favorite Italian restaurant.  Even if I tried I couldn’t find anything to report negatively on after this dining experience. There’s ample off street parking, with an attendant to keep an eye on… Continue reading Tony Mandina’s, Gretna, LA Report #166
