Ditali’s, Harvey, LA Report #175

  My dining partner and I were in the mood for pizza.  I’m ashamed to admit it, but we were headed to Sicily’s Pizza.  That’s right.  The cheap, buffet chain that puts out all you can eat pizza and a few other things.  They happened to be closed.  Maybe the good Lord was looking out… Continue reading Ditali’s, Harvey, LA Report #175

La Providencia, Gretna, LA Report #160

  My favorite Mexican Restaurant on the Westbank is El Paso (Report #9).   I passed this place a thousand times and thought about trying it out, and tonight I finally did. Like any other Mexican place they start you out with chips and salsa.  The chips were very crisp and fresh, and the salsa… Continue reading La Providencia, Gretna, LA Report #160

Fuji Hana, Gretna, LA Report #151

  I don’t know if it’s just me, but it seems most sushi places are pretty much the same.  Same menu, same preparation, etc.  I’m always looking for something that makes one stand out from the others.  Tonight I figured I’d give Fuji Hana a try. Big, pretty place.  If you like hibachi tables there’s… Continue reading Fuji Hana, Gretna, LA Report #151

Sahara Café, Gretna, LA Report #141

  My all time favorite place for Middle Eastern food is Lebanon’s Café (Report #95).  Living on the Westbank though, sometimes I hate driving all the way uptown for it.  I’ve heard some good things about Sahara Café, which is about 5 minutes from my house, so it was time to give them a try.… Continue reading Sahara Café, Gretna, LA Report #141

Gretna Depot Café & Spirits, Gretna, LA Report #135

  Nice looking place, located inside what looks like a renovated double house, I guess in what you would be called Downtown Gretna, near the courthouse and post office.  If you come on a Saturday like I did you can also shop at the farmers market, which is right across the street!  A bunch of… Continue reading Gretna Depot Café & Spirits, Gretna, LA Report #135

El Patron Mexican Grill & Cantina, Gretna, LA Report #131

  When I moved to the Westbank about 21 years ago, El Paso (Report #9), soon became my favorite place for Tex-Mex cuisine.  For awhile now I’ve been hearing El Patron was very good so I figured I’d give it a try. Pretty little place, with a nice outdoor dining area with ceiling fans blazing… Continue reading El Patron Mexican Grill & Cantina, Gretna, LA Report #131

Firehouse Subs, New Orleans, LA Report #111

  I’d never review a fast food chain like Burger King, Subway, McDonalds, Pizza Hut, etc…, BUT this place is special!  It just opened up on the Westbank of New Orleans (Algiers) and is the only one in the city, so technically it’s not a “chain” when it comes to the New Orleans city limits.… Continue reading Firehouse Subs, New Orleans, LA Report #111
