Liuzza's Report

Carpetbagger | Nov 29, 2001 05:11 PM

Had lunch at Liuzza's today (the one on Bienville, not Liuzza's by the Track). Overall, I'd give this a thumbs up. I had crab & corn chowder - crabmeat and corn in a creamy/oniony base reminiscent of New England Clam Chowder. Splendid! Also had a roast beef po-boy. The roast beef had the taste & texture of being freshly roasted on the premises: not the pre-packaged cold-cut brand that so many places use. My co-worker had the shrimp po-boy. That didn't appear to be anything special. Probably best to go to the places that specialize in seafood po-boys. The specials sounded good also: meatloaf with mac & cheese & collard greens, and crawfish black eyed peas with rice.

There are two other things that will have me going back. I noticed a waitress serving a portion of spaghetti & meatballs with 2 baseball(!) sized meatballs and the entire menu is 20% off between 4:30 & 6:30 pm. - an inexpensive mid-week dinner.
