I haven't been to your fair city for awhile, but I had a wonderful experience at Jimmy K's on Magazine Street several years ago. Is it still going?? Wanted a "light lunch" of ham hocks and lima beans on rice. OMG. Those who know can figure it out!
Your're right, Joey K's. Sorry. Donna and I were walking down Magizine street antiquing. We had been to a good many of the places in the Quarter and had eaten well. We went to an antique place and asked where the locals ate. Joey K's was recomended. It was a very local place; a place where the people that worked there went for lunch.
I guess that my point is, that many people want to go to "real, authentic, places." Well, I think this should be at the top of the top of the list.
