Saba, New Orleans, LA Report #208

Right on the corner of Magazine and Nashville Streets this is a beautiful restaurant.  I love the large dining room windows that let the sun in.  I understand the owner and head chef here used to be at Shaya, which is also on Magazine St., a little over a mile to the east.  So if… Continue reading Saba, New Orleans, LA Report #208

Little Korea BBQ, New Orleans, LA Report #207

I loved having Japanese BBQ at Gyu-Kaku, so I figured I’d give the Korean version a try.  I’ve actually never had Korean food.  A guy I used to work with, whose mother is Korean, recommended this place. If you want to grill your own food you can sit at a grill table, but you may… Continue reading Little Korea BBQ, New Orleans, LA Report #207

Wakin’ Bakin’, New Orleans, LA Report #204

  Sometimes it’s hard to find a good, Sunday morning breakfast place that’s not packed. I think I found one!

We decided on: And the food: My dining partner had the… Continue reading Wakin’ Bakin’, New Orleans, LA Report #204

Commander’s Palace, New Orleans, LA Report #200

For my 200th report I knew I had to go somewhere special.  An old,… Continue reading Commander’s Palace, New Orleans, LA Report #200

Poke Loa, New Orleans, LA Report #186

Not to long after I ate sushi for the first time in my life, and was getting used to the whole raw fish thing, through no fault of my own I ended up in Hawaii.  I tried Poke and loved it.  This was maybe in 2000.  But I never had it again!  I never really… Continue reading Poke Loa, New Orleans, LA Report #186

El Pavo Real, New Orleans, LA Report #176

  This place is located in a building that used to be a Time Saver convenience store back in the day.  I used to frequent the store in the 1980’s when I was a student at Loyola University to buy all my fine wines.  MD 20/20, Thunderbird, Night Train, Taylor Cream Sherry (on cold nights),… Continue reading El Pavo Real, New Orleans, LA Report #176

Warbucks, New Orleans, LA Report #174

  Glad I found this place.  The food is great!  We started off with the Laquered Pork Belly and Shrimp Rings. The Laquered Pork Belly was honestly one of the best things I have EVER eaten!  Delicious, tender pork belly wrapped in lettuce leave with very thinly sliced peppers (it’s not too spicy) and a… Continue reading Warbucks, New Orleans, LA Report #174
