    Any restaurant you see that is serving quesabirria tacos, you should check out. They are the food crazy right now around here. Beef stewed with chiles, onions and spices for hours, then packed into corn tortillas that have been dipped in the birria juice, cheese and cilantro added then griddled to perfection and served with consomme. The craze has expanded to quesabirria quesadillas, tortas and burritos. Its off the chain. Perfect late night drunk food! Get some!

    Really enjoyed a birtnday dinner at Rosedale. What a hard working woman Susan Spicer is! She was in the kitchen on a Saturday night and it showed. The food was really good. Had a nice chat with her (I have been a fanboy since seeing her do a cooking demo my first Jazz Fest in 1990) and she signed my cookbook of hers I had brought hoping she would be there. I will definitely go back.

    They've been on my list for a few months but I haven't been yet. I learned of them from Ms Lena's facebook posts.

    The NY Times just released their 2022 list of "America's 50 Best Restaurants".

    Two are local to NOLA. Not too shocked to see Brennan's on the list, but the other one is more surprising: Chicken's Kitchen, a takeout-only shop in Gretna.

    The busiest day at Chicken’s Kitchen is the first Tuesday of every month, when customers start lining up as early as 7:45 a.m. (doors open at 10:30) for stewed oxtails. But there are always lines at this takeout-only restaurant, where the menu changes daily. On Wednesdays, crowds form for smothered turkey necks and braised greens, on Thursdays for blackened catfish and crawfish hush puppies. The restaurant is named for its owner, Marlon Chukumerije, a New Orleans native, known as Chicken, who taught himself to cook by watching his grandmother, his mother and the Food Network. And it’s well worth a trip to Gretna, just across the Mississippi River from New Orleans.
    I don't know the place. Anyone been?

    The guys who own Blue Oak BBQ joined with the guys who own Frenchman Street Rambler and bought Avenue Pub.

    That's sad. 63 is way too young. I didn't realize that he had a stroke this past January.

    I enjoyed some great meals there.

    RIP Adolfo; thanks for the Ocean Sauce.

    There is a celebration of his life at the restaurant tomorrow night from 6 to 8.

    Swag, we ended up getting a reservation for lunch at Peche on Wednesday, well worth it and it will be a repeat.

    We did go to Chemin a la Mar on Sunday...WOW!!!! What a way to round out our trip. It worked out great, even though our anniversary was Tuesday and we wanted to go to Clancy's, we ended up canceling Clancy's because we were having so much fun at the Patry. We opted for the Cote De Boeuf, which is basically a rib eye large enough for two, carved table side. We also had a variety of oysters, the Foie Gras, bottle of wine, and some sides.

    Service and food was absolutely outstanding; have to say, the best steak we've ever had!!! And we do have our fair share of great steak houses here in Chicago. We will be back, for sure!

    Thanks again for the recommendation, much appreciated!

    Great resource! Thank you. The glowing review of Miss River has me thinking maybe we should add a second Alon Shaya restaurant to our current reservations, in addition to Saba.

    Thank you! Very enjoyable reading. Mosca's is definitely on my New Orleans bucket list.


    For all of you who dine regularly in the city, what would you say is the single best addition to the food scene in the last three to four years?

    Commanders! The service there is probably the best in the city. They will make your date feel like a $1 million bucks!

    I've got a girl that I just started dating and want to impress at Sunday Brunch
    Weeks ago, I was able to get a reservation at Arnaud's.
    Commander's was impossible to get into.
    Lo and behold, this morning I got one at Commander's for this Sunday.

    Which one do I keep??
    Arnaud's or Commander's???

    Same experience. We stayed and met our crew at the bar before heading out. Ordered apps and they were all good including grilled oysters.

    We stayed there in 2017. To be fair, we only did appetizers. From what I recall, it was not bad and did the trick for a late evening snack. As for full entrees, can't really say, sorry.
