Review - Compere Lapin - nikinik
It's been a while since I've tried somewhere new, so with a friend moving to Chicago, this was the perfect occasion. We decided on Compere Lapin, Nina Lacompe's new restaurant. Chef Lacompte is a recent runner up of Top Chef. Her background and influence is mostly Caribbean, so I was excited to t...

Review - Covington Brewhouse - nikinik
On a staycation in Covington this past weekend, my BF and I visited Covington Brewhouse. Since I obsessively plan everything, I had our arrival time planned based on the information on their website. We arrived promptly at 10:30 am for the tour only to be told that it was moved to 11:30 am. No wo...

Review - Ox Lot 9 - nikinik
The BF and I were staying in downtown Covington this past weekend and decided to go to Ox Lot 9 for brunch. I had been hearing a lot of great things, and was excited to try it. It did not disappoint! I really loved the atmosphere. Lots of big windows made it bright and airy. The décor was be...

Sammich Owner Responds to Reviews - nikinik
After reading the Sammich owner responses to reviews posted by others, I knew I was in for a doozy!!! Sad that he couldn't care less that the underside of his tables destroys clothes. Disclaimer: I know that this post is long, so a lot of you won't want to read it all. But I figure it's a pre...

REVIEW - Pascal's Manale - nikinik
We had a large group in town, and my boss decided to take them to Pascal's Manale. It definitely wasn't my choice, as I'd heard that they'd gone downhill in recent years. The atmosphere has an old school Italian feel, complete with tons of tacky photos of stars who've previously visited. The fi...

REVIEW - The Sammich - nikinik
Wanting to get some grub on, we met some friends out at Sammich. Sammich is a bright space once occupied by Singa Song Thai food. Since Sammich is a...well...a sammich restaurant, my revue can be summed up pretty easily. Atmosphere: C- It's a bright, open spot, with wooden tables. I found ...

REVIEW - Toast - nikinik
I had the pleasure recently of having breakfast at Toast Uptown. Toast is located on Laurel Street at the old Laurel Street bakery location. Toast is less than a year old, and word has is definitely out on how good it is. I knew to arrive early, or I'd have a wait in front of me. We arrived at...

T-Bois Roll Call - nikinik
Anyone hitting up T-Bois this year? It was hella muddy last year, but still a great time. You just can't beat all you can eat and drink (beer), music, and camping for 2 nights for $132. I just got my tickets today! Whoop! ...

REVIEW - Bayona - nikinik
Saturday night we had a group celebrating my good friend's bachelorette party. We wanted to start the evening with a nice dinner before the Bourbon street madness/scavenger hunt began. The dinner was at Bayona. I had been a couple of times, but honestly, it's been over 10 years since my last vi...

REVIEW - Jacmel Inn - nikinik
I love my mamma dearly, so for her birthday, I wanted to take her out to a fancy pants dinner. We both wanted to try somewhere we'd never been, so we picked Jacmel Inn. Jacmel looks like it's in an old house, and it's so pretty. You walk down a winding path through a garden to reach the hous...

REVIEW - Coquette - nikinik
Coquette is hands down my favorite restaurant in New Orleans. Why? Because the food is just that dern good! A dear friend of mine is moving away (insert tears here), so I wanted to take her out for a memorable meal before she heads out to Buffalo. We purposely arrived at the restaurant to ta...

No More Happy Hour at Coquette - nikinik
I went to dinner last night at Coquette. The food was amazing, as always! Had the charcuterie board, and it was fantastic. For my entrée, I had the duck, and it was one of the best ducks I've ever had! While I do absolutely LOVE the food at Coquette, drinking there will land you in the poor ...

Midway Pizza - Review - nikinik
My date and I had a hankering for pizza last night so we headed to Midway. Midway is a relatively new pizza joint on the ever growing scene of Freret Street. I loved the atmosphere. Very warm and kinda funky too. You can see into the kitchen, which I'm always a fan of. The waiters and waitres...

House of Blues Foundation Room - Review - nikinik
This is a somewhat difficult review to write, because what the Foundation Room does right, it does very right. What it does wrong, it does very wrong. The Foundation Room is the members only, exclusive area above the House of Blues. Although I don't have a membership, I'm occasionally invited u...

Dolce Vita Pizza - nikinik
I love, love, love pizza! I rarely meet a pizza that I don't like, but at the same time, I rarely find one that absolutely wows me. The pepperoni pizza at Dolce Vita blew me away. I LOVE this pizza! The crust is thin with a slight crispiness to it, thanks to the wood fired oven. You can t...

Noodle & Pie Review - nikinik
I wasn't feeling well this weekend and decided some good soup would really hit the spot. Noodle & Pie is a cute little place, brightly lit due to really large windows and huge doors that open up to combine the outside with the inside. This was really nice considering of late, we've had some of th...

Review - Company Burger - nikinik
I've wanted to try Company Burger for a really long time, and finally made it over. I wish I could say that it lived up to the hype, but it just didn't. I had a company burger, onion rings, and a cocktail, and my total was $23...so pretty expensive...AND they charge 50 cents to add tomato! WTH? ...

Review - Mariza - nikinik
I've been wanting to try Mariza for a really long time after hearing so many great things about it. Let me just say that the praise I had been hearing was spot on. Mariza has a great Bywater location on Chartres close to NOCAA. Speaking of NOCAA...the parking lot next to Mariza is for NOCAA o...
