Commander’s Romaine Salad
Forgot to snap a picture of the Barbecued Shrimp and Grits, I don’t believe its the typical Shrimp and Grits they serve, but it was divine.
La Gratinee D’oignon
Les Moules Au Fenouil
Rack of Veal
Frozen Lemon Icebox Pie
I cannot say a single bad thing about this restaurant. The restaurant, the staff, the ambiance and the food are amazing. Possibly my new favorite place.
Blue Dot Donuts
Dante’s Kitchen Brunch: Corned Beef Hash and Fried Eggs Skillet with a side of White Cheddar Grits; Bacon Cinnamon Roll and Coffee.
This restaurant has a “funky” vibe. Its decor is eclectic, but the food is perfect for brunch after a long night. I would definitely recommend starting with the Bacon Sticky-bun. Delicious.
Toup’s Meatery - Spare Rib, Pork Shoulder Grillade, Meat Platter
Toup’s is great. Be sure to make a reservation, because every time I’ve tried to “drop-in,” I’ve had to sit at the bar… if there was even room for me there.
The meat plate was divine, I can never turn down house made pickles. I had the pork shoulder grillade and everything was cooked perfectly, I could cut it with my fork. The grits were divinely creamy.
Ralph’s on the Park
Louisiana Blueberry Cheesecake
Cocktail of the Month (June)
St. James Cheese Co.
Ham and Brie Sandwich and Charcuterie Plate
St. James is a perfect lunch spot. The natural lighting and view of Prytania is a nice break from the officer (or in my case, the library). I recommend letting the chef’s pick your cheeses and meat when getting a platter, they’ve never steered me wrong.
Chiba- Shrimp and Vegetable Appetizer
Forgot to take a picture of the sushi and rolls we got. Oh no! The fish was delicious and fresh. Will definitely be back.
Bud’s Broiler First Timer
#5 w/ Mustard and a Whole Wheat Bun
Side of Onion Rings
Pork Belly Steamed Buns
Lamb Chop T-Bone
Pineapple Upside Down Bread Pudding
I’ve been to Mondo several times since moving to Lakeview. The food is always delicious, but I recommend going with the specials. The specials are seasonal and you really get to see what the chef is capable of creating.
Mondo is also great for happy hour. I love going for a drink and a slice of pie for dessert!
