re: TulaneLSU's Top 10 memories and dishes at Impastato's - TulaneLSU
Napoleon, dear friend, The first paragraph which I believe you interpreted as addressed to you and to which you responded with such eloquence and concern, was indeed a response to Unodelgado. Was it not Pascal who wrote: What a Chimera is man! What a novelty, a monster, a chaos, a contradi...

re: The PoBoy House in Port Allen is legit - TulaneLSU
How not to make a roast beef poorboy: 1. Dry 2. Overcooked 3. With a mayo mixed with butter 4. Without lettuce, tomatoes and pickles 5. Served with CFA waffle fries Then call it a “poboy” — I guess this would be appropriate use of that term. This is a poor poorboy imitation illustrating the ...

re: The Swamp Room is Back - TulaneLSU
Friend, I have an interesting personal story about the Swamp Room. Perhaps when I have the time and inclination, I will share it with you. Until that time, I leave with with the ten best burgers of the NOLA Metro: 10. New Orleans Hamburger and Seafood Co. 9. District Donuts 8. Buffa's 7. Bu...

re: TulaneLSU's Top 10 memories and dishes at Impastato's - TulaneLSU
Is that a serious question? Of all you know about me do you really see me as someone who would prefer Rite 2 to Rite 1? Napoleon, I cannot answer that question. But if you keep reading you can tally them and let us know when my time comes....

re: Piece of Meat is planning an expansion and steakhouse, purchased property next door. - TulaneLSU
I did not in any way enjoy my one visit there. Will not be back. New Orleans has for several decades suffered from a dearth of good butcher shops. That condition received no remedy when POM opened....

re: Talapia - TulaneLSU
Friend, Tilapia, with an I, was good enough for Jesus. It’s certainly good enough for us. If you’ve ever had fresh wild tilapia, which I presume you haven’t, your words might be more respectful about this delicious fish. I prefer it to many fish including redfish, tuna, mackerel, mako, catfish, c...

re: Are there any Cuban places in BR or Nola? - TulaneLSU
Friend, Churros Cafe in Metairie by the old Eric’s crafts and newly opened Gordon’s. It’s probably the oldest Cuban restaurant in Louisiana, now nearly 30 years old. I go once a year before getting Christmas crafting supplies at Gordon’s every October. Yours, TulaneLSU ...

re: TulaneLSU's Top 10 memories and dishes at Impastato's - TulaneLSU
For some reason steak doesn’t fill me up. Bread, pasta, and fried coating do. I often eat three of those large rolls at Impastato’s and that adds to my satiety. I can finish the two soft shells, but it usually makes me feel too full. ...

[b]10. Fried shrimp [/b] [img]https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49369876898_a61e34a7c6_k.jpg[/img] The best three fried shrimp dishes in New Orleans are from Impastato’s, Pascal’s Manale, and Drago’s, in that order. I rarely order it, but when I do, I question why I haven’t ordered it more re...

re: TulaneLSU's Top 10 memories and dishes at Impastato's - TulaneLSU
Over the years, few things have changed at Impastato’s. Some of the dish names have cycled, depending on who is the Saints’ coach at the moment. Most waiters in those days are now gone, replaced by gems like Dawkins, who is among the best young waiters in the NOLA Metro. If I were to have children, ...

re: TulaneLSU's Top 10 memories and dishes at Impastato's - TulaneLSU
Impastato’s Restaurant opened on April 30, 1979, three days and 22 years after Mr. Joe had arrived in the States from Sicily. The restaurant’s location on 16th St. was a no-man’s land between Causeway Blvd. and the burgeoning Fat City, which was overtaking the French Quarter as the center of the cit...

TulaneLSU's Top 10 memories and dishes at Impastato's - TulaneLSU
Dear Friends, I write to you while preparing for this evening’s Lucy’s gathering. As is my custom, I will forego the event because it is being hosted in a bar. But I will be watching you, probably from the balcony of the orange building across the street. Wave to me if you see me. Do you remem...

re: Why do people want to get trashed at sporting events? - TulaneLSU
