Pizza Domenica, New Orleans, LA Report #484

I had been in the mood for pizza since Friday. That night we had an excellent dinner at a Cajun restaurant named Gabrielle, so no pizza. But I planned to take care of that Saturday night, because we were going to an Italian place called Randazzo’s. Wouldn’t you know I pick maybe the only Italian… Continue reading Pizza Domenica, New Orleans, LA Report #484

The Crazy Italian, New Orleans, LA Report #475

The last time I was in this place it was Chap’s Chicken, but they ended up moving to Metairie. I liked the fact this space is attached to a convenience store. Back when it was Chap’s, if there was anything you wanted to go with your meal that the restaurant didn’t offer, like beer, hard… Continue reading The Crazy Italian, New Orleans, LA Report #475

The ones I’ve reported on are Felix’s, Lakeview Harbor, Landry’s, Ming’s, Russel’s Marina Grill, Sala and The Blue Crab. I ate at this place a long time ago.

Ming’s, New Orleans, LA Report #384

I love Chinese food, so I’m always willing to try a new place. It seems Chinese restaurants in New Orleans all have basically the same things on their menu. I’m always looking for that place that will wow me with something wonderful and different. I recently fell in love with Hong Minh, which doesn’t do… Continue reading Ming’s, New Orleans, LA Report #384

The Backyard, New Orleans, LA Report #377

***** Stay tuned for a special BONUS report at the end! ***** I noticed this place a few months ago when we had an excellent Italian dinner at Rizzuto’s, which is right across the street.

Rizzuto’s, New Orleans, LA Report #362

The perfect way to end my, “one day I’m allowed to have a cheat meal during Lent”, day! A great meal at a nice family run restaurant. In fact, this place is so family run when I asked our waiter about a certain dish we had he said his mom was in the kitchen cooking… Continue reading Rizzuto’s, New Orleans, LA Report #362

Lakeview Harbor, New Orleans, LA Report #342

I love this part of the city. It’s loaded with restaurants. The ones I’ve reported on around here are The Blue Crab, Landry’s Seafood House, Felix’s Restaurant & Oyster Bar, Russel’s Marina Grill and Sala. This place is sandwiched right between the last two on that list. All of this is right on the south… Continue reading Lakeview Harbor, New Orleans, LA Report #342

The Blue Crab, New Orleans, LA Report #257

I love dining in this area.  The restaurants around here are built up high on top of wooden pilings, so they have a nice view of Lake Pontchartrain.  This one is located right next to a big, beautiful, chain restaurant named Landry’s Seafood House.  Landry’s is closer to the lake with a better view, but… Continue reading The Blue Crab, New Orleans, LA Report #257

Felix’s Restaurant & Oyster Bar, New Orleans, LA Report #190

Nice looking place with a beautiful view.  Right across from the New Orleans Municipal Yacht Harbor.  You can watch the zillion dollar yachts cruise out the harbor en route to Lake Pontchartrain.  The main dining room has a regular bar, oyster bar, and a char-grilled oyster station.  You can also dine on an outdoor balcony… Continue reading Felix’s Restaurant & Oyster Bar, New Orleans, LA Report #190
