Costera, New Orleans, LA Report #262

This is a Spanish restaurant.  In fact, on their website they describe themselves as a “coastal Spanish restaurant”.  I guess maybe in Spain they differentiate between coastal and other types of Spanish food.  Either way, we don’t have a lot of Spanish restaurants in New Orleans so I was excited about eating here. The large… Continue reading Costera, New Orleans, LA Report #262

The Vintage, New Orleans, LA Report #239

I heard about this place because of their beignets.  But they have other food too, so we decided to come here for dinner.  Seems this place is a bar first, and a restaurant second.  I could be wrong about that, but the drink menu is longer than the food menu.  I’m not a drinker, but… Continue reading The Vintage, New Orleans, LA Report #239

Pascal’s Manale, New Orleans, LA Report #235

I love going to old, New Orleans restaurants.  Since this one has been in operation since 1913 I think it qualifies!  This is said to be the restaurant that invented a dish called BBQ Shrimp.  BBQ Shrimp has nothing to do with BBQ sauce.  It normally consist of large, unpeeled, head on shrimp, cooked in… Continue reading Pascal’s Manale, New Orleans, LA Report #235

If you like the great outdoors, they… Continue reading Gris-Gris, New Orleans, LA Report #232

Twisted Waffles, New Orleans, LA Report #225

This place has only been open for about three months but I’ve already heard good things about it. … Continue reading Twisted Waffles, New Orleans, LA Report #225

Boucherie, New Orleans, LA Report #222

I keep a list of restaurants I want to try one day.  This place made the list when I found out they had bread pudding made from Krispy Kreme donuts!  So that was the main reason I came here.  I’ve now got many other reasons to return. Small little cozy place.  Even the flowers on… Continue reading Boucherie, New Orleans, LA Report #222

Central City BBQ, New Orleans, LA Report #219

I’ve heard good things about the BBQ here so I had to come check it out.  Nice looking place, with seating inside and out.  There’s a stage outside so I’m assuming they have live entertainment at times.  I was going to ask about that, but I was so hungry and excited about the food I… Continue reading Central City BBQ, New Orleans, LA Report #219
