Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar, Metairie, LA Report #416

I’ve been wanting to try this place for some time, but it looked a little pricey and I’m allergic to spending money. Yesterday was my birthday and I was asked where I wanted to eat. My first question was, “You buying”? When the answer was “yes”, I knew the time had come. I love a… Continue reading Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar, Metairie, LA Report #416

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

Table 100, Flowood, MS Report #408

I’m in Flowood, Mississippi! That’s right outside of Jackson. I’m here because there’s about to be a category 4 hurricane back in New Orleans. This is actually the first time in my life I evacuated for a hurricane. I’ve been through every hurricane to hit New Orleans since 1965. I think I deserve a break!… Continue reading Table 100, Flowood, MS Report #408

Vinnie’s Caddyshack Bar & Grill, Metairie, LA Report #385

This is a place I never should have found. It’s located on a back street in Metairie. I don’t live anywhere near that area. Also, I’m not a drinker, so I’m really not into the bar scene. That being said, the last bar and grill type place I went to, called Table & Tap, was… Continue reading Vinnie’s Caddyshack Bar & Grill, Metairie, LA Report #385

Doris Metropolitan, New Orleans, LA Report #383

It’s good to be back in New Orleans after dining across the Gulf Coast over last weekend. It’s always good to come home. Today, I had a serious workout in the gym. Lifted tons of weight! I believe the old saying that beef builds muscle, so I decided to get a good steak tonight. Whenever… Continue reading Doris Metropolitan, New Orleans, LA Report #383

Another Orange Beach restaurant at The Wharf, right across the street from Yo Ho Rum & Tacos. I’ve been to this place couple times in the past and it is excellent. Food, service, everything.

Gianna, New Orleans, LA Report #297

There’s a local restaurant critic who says you should never go to a restaurant as soon as it opens.  Give them six months or so to get their act together, and then go.  I happen to work right down the street from this place, and remember when this corner was just an empty lot.  I… Continue reading Gianna, New Orleans, LA Report #297
