Ye Olde College Inn, New Orleans, LA Report #323

This is an old New Orleans restaurant that’s been around in one form or another since 1933. They actually have a garden across the street where they grow things to use in the restaurant for a farm to table experience. You can’t get any fresher than that! I told a fellow New Orleanian I had… Continue reading Ye Olde College Inn, New Orleans, LA Report #323

Riccobono’s Panola St. Café, New Orleans, LA Report #312

This place is owned by the same folks that own Riccobono’s Peppermill and Café Navarre, so I knew it was going to be good.  It’s located on a back street in a residential neighborhood, so you’ve got to be looking for it to find it. Our waitress recommended the Boudin omelet.  It sounded good and… Continue reading Riccobono’s Panola St. Café, New Orleans, LA Report #312

Piccola Gelateria, New Orleans, LA Report #309

  We had just finished lunch at the High Hat Café, and it hit me this place is in the same block.  Some gelato for dessert sounded like a great idea! They have more than gelato.  They also serve crepes (sweet and savory) and flatbreads.  But we decided on a small pistachio and a small… Continue reading Piccola Gelateria, New Orleans, LA Report #309

High Hat Café, New Orleans, LA Report #308

I’ve heard good things about this place and have been wanting to get here for awhile.  Their website says they serve food from the Mississippi and Louisiana Delta, and catfish is the star of the menu! Unfortunately, neither of us were in the catfish mood.  We decided on the tamales, a cup of gumbo, and… Continue reading High Hat Café, New Orleans, LA Report #308

Slim Goodies Diner, New Orleans, LA Report #288

Thanks to the Coronavirus this is my first time dining INSIDE of a New Orleans restaurant since a lunch at Red’s Chinese on March 15th (which was delicious by the way).  Restaurants here were allowed to open up for dine in yesterday. Some people have been concerned about the so called “contact tracing” the media… Continue reading Slim Goodies Diner, New Orleans, LA Report #288

Saffron NOLA, New Orleans, LA Report #283

Wondering where to dine tonight during this Coronavirus take out only era, we decided on Indian food.  One thing to consider is ease of ordering.  I’ve had bad experiences trying to get through on the phone.  This place makes it very easy! First, go to their web site: https://www.saffronnola.com/  Then click on “Online Ordering” along… Continue reading Saffron NOLA, New Orleans, LA Report #283

Lula Restaurant Distillery, New Orleans, LA Report #281

  I’ll be so glad when this Coranavirus has run it’s course and I can go sit down in a restaurant again!  Until then, restaurants need our support more than ever.  And of course, I still need to eat! This place is right on St. Charles Ave., but for some reason I’ve never noticed it. … Continue reading Lula Restaurant Distillery, New Orleans, LA Report #281

The Milk Bar, New Orleans, LA Report #277

I love lamb.  When this place popped up on my radar I did what I always do.  Went online and looked at the menu.  They have THREE different lamb sandwiches.  One served on a Ciabatta bun with humus, a lamb po-boy, and a Thai one with sweet chili sauce and sour cream.  THAT WAS ALL… Continue reading The Milk Bar, New Orleans, LA Report #277

Blue Giant Chinese, New Orleans, LA Report #271

This place is right next door to Fat Boy Pantry, where I tried my first lobster po-boy!  And Surrey’s Café & Juice Bar, which I absolutely love, is in the next block.  I think I might have to buy a house around here! Small, cozy little joint.  We decided on the Shrimp Wontons, the Dan… Continue reading Blue Giant Chinese, New Orleans, LA Report #271

Toast, New Orleans, LA Report #268

This place is small and very popular, which means one thing.  A wait for a table.  If you Google them you can pick one of their three locations and get on an online wait list via Yelp.  The 5th picture above shows what it looks like when you check your status on your smartphone.  About… Continue reading Toast, New Orleans, LA Report #268
