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

Joey K’s, New Orleans, LA Report #267

If you want plain and simple, no frills, delicious New Orleans food, this is the place for you!  I haven’t been here in years.  This is the kind of place when you get back, you wonder why you stayed away so long! We decided on: And the food! Notice the rustic table.  I like that!… Continue reading Joey K’s, New Orleans, LA Report #267

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
