I just got back from a brief trip to New Orleans, and thought I'd give my thoughts about the food I ate there.
Uglesich's was a disappointment. I had fried green tomatoes and a trout with a salty pasty sauce. I liked the atmosphere of the place, however.
I did not eat at Tee-Eva-s praline shop, but after meeting her at Ernie K-Doe's, I definitely will order some of her food on line (www.tee-eva.net). She's a delightful personality, as is Antoinette, Ernie K-Doe's widow and the current proprietor of Ernie K-Doe's Mother and Law Lounge. The bar puts some pretty good food out for the patrons.
I found the barbecue shrimp at Lennie's Picadilly (a bar across from the Fairmount, attached to a restaurant called the half-shell or something like that) delicious.
The crawfish quesadilla at the Rock-n-Bowl (the big zydeco club/bowling alley) was pretty tasty.
Dookie Chase's was horrible. For 25 dollars, I got a gummy crawfish etoufee and stale vegetables with cheese whiz on them.
Nola was delicious. Had a bass in a great sauce there.
