New Orleans eateries I’ve tried so far:
Boucherie: Great fried boudin balls, beef brisket and parmesan fries. Excellent service and a nice place to get together with friends. I would definitely go back.
Juan’s Flying Burrito: The only redeeming thing I can say so far is that they have corn tortillas. Otherwise, their service is so hipster my old pile of flannel shirts erupted into flames the minute I walked in. I hoped my meal might be saved by the cupcake I bought on my way out, but it was a glorified Hostess that was dry and tasted like dirt. I had steak, pork, and shrimp tacos. The ingredients tasted fresh but lacked originality. In other words, every taco tastes the same. Oooooh, and their margaritas suck.
Bistro Daisy: I ducked in here to escape the cold and was pleasantly surprised by the owner’s hospitality and their amazing potato and leek soup. Just what I needed after a five mile walk in the arctic tundra and a raging cold. I also tried the special boudin appetizer with roasted pecans and it was delicious.
Reginelli’s: I can’t say enough about their garlic chicken pita. I could eat this for weeks without getting tired of it, but I might never be kissed again.
