| Food and Drink Board|| REVIEW - Jacmel Inn - nikinik on 2/25/15 at 12:43 pm|
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...
| Food and Drink Board|| REVIEW - Coquette - nikinik on 2/25/15 at 12:43 pm|
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...
| Food and Drink Board|| No More Happy Hour at Coquette - nikinik on 2/25/15 at 7:29 am|
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 ...
| Food and Drink Board|| Midway Pizza - Review - nikinik on 11/20/14 at 10:14 am|
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...
| Food and Drink Board|| House of Blues Foundation Room - Review - nikinik on 11/19/14 at 9:11 am|
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...
| Food and Drink Board|| Dolce Vita Pizza - nikinik on 10/27/14 at 9:56 am|
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...
| Food and Drink Board|| Noodle & Pie Review - nikinik on 10/27/14 at 8:31 am|
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...

| 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...
| Food and Drink Board|| Domenica Happy hour now only going until 5 pm - nikinik on 6/16/14 at 4:01 pm|
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?
| Food and Drink Board|| Tasty Bite packaged indian food - nikinik on 6/5/14 at 2:14 pm|
I just bought some of the Bombay Potatoes yesterday. I had never seen this brand before. It was damn tasty, I gotta say.
| Food and Drink Board|| Milkfish - Review - nikinik on 5/28/14 at 11:48 am|
Pretty, warm space with nice lighting.
BYOB with no corkage fee.
Certificates available on Restaurant.com
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...
| O-T Lounge|| Send Graduation Gift? - nikinik on 5/13/14 at 7:59 am|
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. ...

Ron White's stand up "A Little Unprofessional" is fantastic. Seriously one of the best stand up acts I've seen in a long time. I was cracking up laughing non stop....
| Food and Drink Board|| Dominique's on Magazine - Review - nikinik on 4/17/14 at 8:53 am|
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...
