We had another great lunch at Station 6, among the dishes was the lamb burger and good raw oysters. Also had good raw oysters at Lama's St. Roch in old Mandeville. It has some great old photos of some of the Italian familes in their truck produce or butcher shop days.
We had dinner at Cava on Harrison Ave, with mixed reviews. For the most part the food was good but nothing struck anyone as particularly special, other than some of the cocktails. It will be worth another visit to give it another try.
An exceptional meal was had at Water Street Bistro in Madisonville. All these years on the north shore and my first time there was last week. The menu is straight forward bistro food, heavy on the meat side. But everything the way simple food should be done to be exceptional. Quality ingredients and well done sauces. My rack of lamb was the best I've ever had and the others raved about their veal dishes and a thick cut porkchop. The chef/owner there came via La Provence, so has a great background for that cooking. So we find the place just after we sold and are in the process of moving back to N.O. It will definitely be on our list when we cross the bridge to visit friends.
