Bits & Bobs

Excited about McClure's opening up on Magazine Street (4800 block, across from Le Bon Temps) by the new year!

La Petite Grocery is open for Sunday and Monday dinners...

Pizza Delicious is open at its permanent location for a couple weeks now! 617 Piety, with a new website and everything. Still doing special pizzas on a rotating menu, so check out the site to know what your delicious options will be.

Are you all getting sandwiches for lunch at Ancora every weekend? 'Cause you really, really should. Don't be disappointed that they don't serve pizza! I know, it's really good, but so are their sandwiches.

NOLA Smokehouse will be popping up at The Bricks Courtyard Bar & Grill, 735 St. Joseph St. in the CBD on November 28, 5:30-10pm (there is talk of stuffed chicken wings and smoked shrimp chowder) and at Toups Meatery (one of my favorite meateries!) on December 6, 11am-6pm.

Missed the Oak Street PoBoy Festival, but still loving on Killer PoBoys at the Erin Rose.

Holy shit, I had an amazing dinner at Coquette the other night- some sort of butternut squash filled pasta tossed with, like, fried chicken to start and a stunning veal chop. Dessert was a beautiful (and tasty) deconstructed apple fritter thing, and they are currently aging spirits for cocktails and sipping, which are DELICIOUS. (the martini made with the aged Genever is to die for.) Go get you some! Just another Tuesday night in New Orleans.

Went to Chicago, ate delicious donuts, at Frontera Grill (Rick Bayless's flagship), Girl & The Goat, and all sorts of other delicousness. Man, they know how to do donuts out there. We went to Do-Rite Donuts and Glazed & Infused. I may discuss Girl & the Goat and/or Frontera in another blog post, we shall see.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving! We are headed to Austin (by car) and are looking forward to it quite a lot.
