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. Almost too easy, in fact, to the point where I feared the place might not be so hot. I was wrong! Cocktails The place was active, in spite of...

Cooking for the dorm at Tu...

What a great story about a couple of guys attending Tulane University, and how they’re cooking for dorm-mates in Monroe Hall.

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. I hit The Wall of humidity as I walked out of...

I had “Batture Blonde...

#WineOClock – Sangri...

I’m a Sangria junkie, particularly at #WineOClock. Mrs. YatPundit, not so much. On a recent trip to Slice on St. Charles Avenue, the drink special was white sangria. I was all about it. Wife was her usual skeptical self. I told her we could easily get her a glass of something if she didn’t like it, so we went for it.
