Dick & Jenny's & Stanley - 1st time, what do you like there??
We're coming back to NOLA for 5 glorious days in early May and we're hitting all of our favorite spots, but this time with our Native New Orleanian 4 year old son in tow! The only 2 places on our agenda that we've never been to are Dick & Jenny's and Stanley. What's your favorite dishes, or any suggestions, at both places?
Just to let ya know...we're also going to Lola's, Bluebird (sob), Camellia Grill, Nola (for lunch), the Ruby Slipper, Parkway and Commander's Palace (for dinner). We were broke when we lived there so all our faves are kinda cheap!!
I love Lola! Our usual orders are ....
Crab Tropical salad
Garlic shrimp appetizer
Grilled lambchops with gorgonzola dipping sauce
AND TONS OF BREAD WITH THAT ADDICTIVE GARLIC SPREAD!
Dick and Jennys: Appetizer sampler with goat cheese puff pastry, fried green tomatoes(and I cannot remember but a few other things)
Basil Grouper is outstanding
Veal Cheek Grillades and Grits
One of my favorite things about Dick and Jennys is that we can eat well and the kids are welcome there as well!
The fried oyster appetizer (it also comes in the sampler) is great, as well as the sweet potato soup. Their wine list is also excellent.
Just ate there last week; loved the fried oysters, seafood pie, and the grillade. A wonderful meal, casual, great food, super wine list.
