quick nola review from the weekend

we arrived on thursday and were in town for the uga/lsu game in baton rouge on sat.
even though we know there is better we wanted to try Jacque-Imos. we loved the atmosphere and made all kinds of friends waiting for our tables. this place has a real local feel to it. the food was above average and our waitress was great. i got the mahi mahi with crawfish sauce and my buddy got the quail. his was much better than mine but they were both great.

we didn't wake up in time for breakfast but made up for it at lunch. we did Mother's and thought it was ok. neither of us had even been and felt that we had to go at least once. the poboys were both good but i wish we had ventured out further to Parkway or Mahoneys.

now for dinner we went to Kpauls. i know this place isn't as good as it used to be and doesn't typically get rave reviews on here, but i really enjoyed my meal. every part of this meal was top notch: the food, atmosphere and wait staff. i got the fried grouper special that came with duck and sausage gumbo, mixed veggies and mashed potatoes. it also came with a sweet potato pecan pie dessert.

for breakfast on Sat were in a hurry and decided to eat at the hotel restaurant Seven at the Wyndham. the breakfast was way over priced and the service was terrible. and the food was way over spiced. we would have been better served going thru the drive thru at popeyes or bojangles.

we had lunch and dinner in Baton Rouge at the game.

and for our last meal we at brunch at Eat. what a wonderful place this was. another great out of the way locals kind of place i really like. the server wasn't too on point but the food made up for it. i had the Big Breakfast with fried chicken and biscuits and gravy. they weren't kidding when they called it the big breakfast! i will definitely come back to this restaurant for dinner the next time i am in town.

i am now officially on a diet
