Hopefully you guys are hitting Parrains in BR or Blue Dog Cafe in Lafayette. Both excellent.

Mosca's 4137 US Hwy 90W Westwego. This is a couple of miles across the Hewey P Long bridge. It is a frame house with oster shell parking lot. When mafia boss Carlos Marchello went to prison his personal chef started this restaurant. It is a local favorite. You will see all kind of celebs there most nights. Try the Shrimp Mosca and the oyster mosca. Fast for a few days to afford the heavy dose of garlic butter. This is our favorite of all time. Better than Commanders Palace. Well...maybe not.

I'm sure that place is great, but when I go to NO I'm walking, Ubering or hopping in cabs. I ain't driving over the damn bridge to eat

I'm fearful for the bar/restaurant scene in New Orleans. they are highly dependent on tourism and convention business.... and that is not going to return to the same for a long time.


Just won't be the same, I'm afraid

Many of the restaurants made it through Katrina. If they made it then, they'll make it through this. Many locals eat out.

Sure, locals eat out. But there isn'ts local population to support all the places. Many of which are still shut down.

The only saving grace is a lot of the old school places own their buildings so can wait it out. But it is going to be a long road.

So we were in New Orleans back in November, but I forgot to report.

Tried Meril (which is one of Emeril's places). It was a good casual dining spot. Felt a bit trendy, but the food was good and the price wasn't too bad.

Tried a couple of old classics
* Port of Call basically a hamburger place & bar. Hard to get into even for a late lunch. Truly excellent hamburger, though. Not exactly traditional N.O. cooking but good food.
* Mothers Mothers is an old classic in N.O. Feels like you're eating at the Soup Nazi's location. They are apparently known for their ham. I wanted etouffe though. I got it with red beans and rice. The etouffe was really good, but the red beans and rice had their ham in it. I was skeptical (I usually think of sausage in rb&r). It was stunningly good. I'm not sure how they cook their ham, but I want to go back just to try some.

Next time you're at Mothers, get the Debris Po-boy! Yum

Mother's peaked sometime back in the early 2000's. Don't get the appeal, personally, but something everyone has to do at least once.


I enjoy going to NOLA in November or early December, usually great weather for walking around.

pour one out for another Mardi Gras

Be very curious how the restaurant/hotel scene in NOLA looks in another year or two.

Just got back from NOLA. Most restaurants have limited days and hours. Tried Jacques-Imos on Oak in upper Carrollton for first time. Excellent funky dive with large portions and fantastic flavor. Tried and true were open, but limited.
