| Food and Drink Board|| Review - Company Burger - nikinik on 7/15/14 at 12:16 pm|
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?
| Food and Drink Board|| Review - Mariza - nikinik on 7/9/14 at 7:46 am|
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...

This is disappointing news. While I'm thrilled that Pizza Domenica now has a happy hour, I'm not happy at all that Domenica's happy hour will now end at 5. Who the hell can go to happy hour before 5?

Great Mid City location.
The food is just o.k. There's no other way to put it. My dining companion and I both felt the same way about it...under...

I have a friend that I used to be close to a long time ago, but I'm not anymore. We'll comment occasionally on a FB post here and there. I haven't seen her in person in probably 2-3 years. I just got a graduation announcement for her daughter. I'm torn on whether or not I should send something. ...
| Food and Drink Board|| Can't bring crawfish to The Bulldog - nikinik on 5/4/14 at 7:00 pm|
The Bulldog no longer allows crawfish from Big Fisherman to be brought over there. Was disappointed to find that out today. Sucked because my boyfriend was going to get food at The Bulldog, and we probably would've drank about $30 in beer. Oh well. ...

It was time for fancy girl's dinner out, and since several of us had never been, we chose Dominique's.
I really enjoyed the atmosphere of Dominique's. The chairs were comfortable, we were seated by the big front window, and the lighting was beautiful.
The service didn't strike me as very pers...

| Food and Drink Board|| Restaurant Recommendation - nikinik on 4/3/14 at 9:26 am|
Every couple of months, the gals and I like to go out for a nice dinner. We like to try something new each time.
Give suggestions on places that are new, but not brand new. I do like to give them time to iron their kinks out.
So far I've thought of Peche and Tableau.
Don't suggest Kingfish...

Met chef, Aaron Sanchez (Chopped) at Borgne the other night before the Elton John concert.

| Food and Drink Board|| MoPho - Review - nikinik on 2/13/14 at 1:54 pm|
I was having a hankering for pho because it was a wee bit chilly outside.
Mopho is new, it's close to my humble abode, and it's on my way home from work.
First off, I love the name. What can I say? I'm a sucker for funny names of establishments.
The atmosphere is really nice. It's defin...

After an unsuccessful attempt to get into Sylvain on a Friday night (chuckle chuckle), our group headed over to Cane and Table.
I really loved the atmosphere...dark, exposed brick and wood...just all around cool.
The service was fine. It didn't stand out to me as being great, but it didn't ...

Friday was an early day at work for me, so I headed Uptown for some Vietnamese grub with my gal pals. We decided to give Lilly's a try since none of us had been there.
The atmosphere at Lilly's is fine. It's a bright and airy place, and it felt welcoming. Upon arrival, my table was wobbly, but...

I know it's a ways away, but I'm really interested in going to this festival.
My question is...how good of a deal is the included beer and food? Does the beer run out, or do you truly have unlimited access to beer?
What about food? Is it really enough food? Do you eat at set times, or jus...

If you live anywhere near mid city, you know the options for good Vietnamese food is pretty dismal. I can't put into words how excited I was to see a Vietnamese cafe opening within walking distance to my house! The pho gods are smiling down on me!

I went to Ba Chi a couple of weeks ago and I gotta say...it just wasn't good...at all.
I had the pho. The broth wasn't really flavorful and the meat was very tough.
My friend had char-grilled chicken and she said it was overcooked and almost too salty to eat.
I don't see me ever going back...

It was my lovely friend Beth's birthday, so we headed to Mondo for some happy hour drinks and food.
Mondo has o.k. happy hour specials with 3 wines offered at $5.00, and also their specialty drinks and sangria. But they don't offer any food happy hour specials, so there are a lot better choices ...
