Avo, New Orleans, LA Report #542

I get emails from this website called Eater New Orleans. They sent me this one entiltled, “Here are the tastiest Italian eats in New Orleans“. Click on that title if you want to see the list. Man, I wish they haden’t done that. If they hadn’t, I might have stayed home tonight and ate a… Continue reading Avo, New Orleans, LA Report #542

Hangout Ramen, New Orleans, LA Report #532

It’s been pretty warm here in New Orleans. I’m talking 80 degree temps in December. But that’s about to change. It’s cold right now by our standards. 48 degrees as I’m writing this. But by Christmas it’ll be in the 20’s. That’s very rare, bone chilling cold to us New Orleanians! So I need to… Continue reading Hangout Ramen, New Orleans, LA Report #532

Nirvana Indian Cuisine, New Orleans, LA Report #531

I don’t travel to uptown New Orleans a lot, but this is my second time eating in an uptown restaurant this week. This place has been around since 1982. That’s a long time! That means they must be doing something right. I ate here only once, back when I was in college not too far… Continue reading Nirvana Indian Cuisine, New Orleans, LA Report #531

Brigtsen’s Restaurant, New Orleans, LA. Report #529

This place is located uptown in the Riverbend area of New Orleans. It’s in a traditional, old New Orleans shotgun style house. I love that homey feel. Like you’re dining in someone’s house. You get that feeling even when you go into the restroom! When you walk in, you’ll see a long hallway that runs… Continue reading Brigtsen’s Restaurant, New Orleans, LA. Report #529

Windowsill Pies, New Orleans, LA Report #519

After a delicious lunch at La Patrona, we decided to stop here for dessert. Never been to a pie specialty shop before. I like pie. I was hoping I’d be happy. In the end, I was. You can buy any pie by the slice. Online I saw they had a Bananas Foster pie. I was… Continue reading Windowsill Pies, New Orleans, LA Report #519

La Patrona, New Orleans, LA Report #518

We had no plans on coming here today. I have a credit card attached to the Marriot hotel chain. They send me emails featuring certain restaurants, and I get points for hotel stays if I dine in those places. One of those restaurants was the place in the last picture above. A Mexican place called… Continue reading La Patrona, New Orleans, LA Report #518

Beard Papa’s, New Orleans, LA Report #514

When I was a little kid I used to love watching The Little Rascals. There was one episode where Spanky, Alfalfa and Buckwheat swore off of women, and formed the He Man’s Woman Haters Club. But then Darla showed up, winked at Alfalfa and he betrayed his oath to the club and ran off with… Continue reading Beard Papa’s, New Orleans, LA Report #514

Mint Modern Vietnamese, New Orleans, LA Report #503

Awhile back my son invited me to get this app called Upside. It gives you cash back when you buy gas at certain gas stations and eat at certain restaurants. He wasn’t looking out for me, though. His ulterior motive was he gets a monetary kickback every time I use the app, since I used… Continue reading Mint Modern Vietnamese, New Orleans, LA Report #503

Ted’s Frostop, New Orleans, LA Report #487

This place is affiliated with the national chain of Frostop restaurants, started in 1926 in Columbus, Ohio. There’s also one in Metairie (Report #376), which is just named “Frostop”. This one is named Ted’s Frostop, so I guess they’re all independently owned and operated. The menu here is also different, so I gave this one… Continue reading Ted’s Frostop, New Orleans, LA Report #487
