TDAC Sushi Feature Today

TDAC Sushi! TDAC Sushi – They Draw and Cook Today’s featured collection on They Draw and Cook is Sushi! I got started eating sushi as a student at UNO, in the late 1970s. A lot of folks do the “oh, I’m not going to eat raw fish,” but it’s easy to get into sushi for New Orleanians. That’s because we all grew up eating seafood. Start your non-sushi-eating friends...

Top Oyster Spots in New Or...

Top Oyster spots offer a great range of choices. Top Oyster spots – I’ve got a few quibbles This list of places in town to get good oysters isn’t bad. GoNOLA.com rarely puts forward a bad or controversial set of recommendations. Still, I’ve got a couple of quibbles with the list, as well as a few comments.

Dinner at Vessel New Orlea...

Vessel New Orleans in Mid-City Vessel New Orleans is fun! I felt uninspired when it came to cooking dinner last Saturday, so we decided to go out. Vessel New Orleans was our to-try list for some time. I went to their page on Open Table, and easily booked a table.

Coolinary Dinner at Muriel...

We never took kiddo out for his 22nd birthday in July. He ran off to Houston to see Copa America Centenario games with his friends and his study plan for the CPA exam (he’s taken three parts so far, got a 99 on Audit, a 98 on FAR, and BEC score isn’t back yet) keeps him busy. When everyone realized this past weekend was a quiet one, I made a reservaton for us at Muriel’s Jackson Square....

Croque Madame at Wakin Bak...

(author’s note: I’m not affiliated with Wakin Bakin, other than being a very happy regular customer) I can’t say I don’t like going to Columbus, OH, for work. My colleagues there are great people and the Columbus Food Scene (#CbusFoodScene on Instagram) is pretty good. Still, like Glinda told Dorothy, there’s no place like home.
