Jack Dempsey’s, New Orleans, LA Report #124

  I never say anything about myself but here’s one tidbit of information.  I’m a retired New Orleans Police Officer.  That’s pertinent because this place is located three blocks away from the now defunct New Orleans Police Department 5th District Police Station, which was the first place I worked when I joined the NOPD in… Continue reading Jack Dempsey’s, New Orleans, LA Report #124

Mr. John’s Steak House, New Orleans, LA Report #105

  Located on the historic St. Charles Avenue streetcar line, a local food critic named Tom Fitzmorris has called this the best steakhouse in New Orleans.  I decided to see for myself.

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 Report #49

Johnny Longboats, West Palm Beach, FL Report #21

I also had the pleasure to dine in this place during my escape from southeast Louisiana.  If you see Jambalaya on the menu and they say it’s “served over rice”, don’t get it!  Jambalaya IS rice!  Another little tip I was no longer in Louisiana. Nice looking place.  It’s pretty cool there at night and… Continue reading Johnny Longboats, West Palm Beach, FL Report #21
