New Orleans restaurants that make me happy
My last thread was pretty serious so I thought I would liven it up with this post and list places that make me just happy and feel good. They dont have to be world class or even famous but Ill list a few of my happy places. Liuzzas on bienville great atmosphere the huge schooners of beer good food nothing earth shattering but an enjoyable happy place for me in fact its always my last meal before I drive the ol ancient ford ltd back to houston. Parkway bakery and tavern I always eat at the bar and usually meet someone interesting to talk to, or just kid around with the great waitresses there, just makes me satisfied to be alive and in new orleans. Mr. Bs something about the place sit at the bar have a cocktail maybe a little pasta jambalaya and Im pretty satisfied and content. Ive listed just a few how about yall?
Funny you mention schooners ... I'm just back from Jack Dempsey's: schooners of Abita for four bucks, fabulous fried frogs' legs, some oysters, the surf and turf. Nothing that a visitor would schlep out to Poland Ave for but man, a great valentine's day meal without the drama and nonsense.
Incidentally, the new upstairs at Bacchanal is pretty nice too. Very much liked the bartender; she was amazingly competent.
