Remy is from New Orleans, so she sucks the heads of crawfish and knows the right way to pronounce 'praline.' She is Mark Bittman's assistant and, like all broke writers, lives in Brooklyn.
Yessss, Parkway's shrimp!!! Although I can never go there without getting the surf n' turf -- I really love their debris. Tastes just like a grandmother made it. I'm a NOLA native and had never heard "peacemaker" applied to anything other than oyster and shrimp. Thanks for teaching me something new!
Just went to Katie's for the first time last week and was amazed it had flown under the radar for me for so long. Definitely gives Mandina's a run for its money.
Can't wait to try this. If you're sprinkling the bread with sugar and then cooking it in multiple batches, does it get all melty and burnt in the pan? I love the sound of caramelized French toast (not the annoying kind with caramel sauce, but with your creme brulee-like crust) and always figured I'd have to get it by slightly undercooking the toast on the stove, then topping it with sugar and finishing it under the broiler. But then, that's a big pain for a pantry breakfast!
@jedd63, I'd pass on the frigid temps but would otherwise love to crash your camping trips.
yessss Company Burger, light of my life.
Such a good first sentence. So true.
Jamie, I LOVE this and want to condense it all into a little business card to give to those who are confused by my habit. The one problem with eating alone is you can't go to Brooklyn Fare as a party of one, so now I have to look for another solo diner who wants to treat herself to a meal there and we can dine solo together.
@Liza: Re: your slideshow, Morning Call has a newish outpost in City Park, which is much easier to access from downtown than the Metairie location - just a nice trip down Esplanade. Plus you can walk off the beignets in the sculpture garden afterward!
I love Besh but find his restaurants (excluding Domenica) to be inconsistent. Superior Seafood doesn't have the celeb chef or the downtown location, but it IS on the Mardi Gras parade route (corner of St. Charles and Napoleon), and its oyster happy hour is as good as Luke's.
