Re: “Best of New Orleans 2016: Food

I just gotta throw out a few overlooked places that are well worth the drive to the suburbs. The Happy Italian in Harahan is AMAZING!. Baked Ziti w/gorgonzola, brown butter garlic sauce, pancetta, and walnuts is not for the faint of heart, but it is one of the better dishes I've eaten in the city!

Also in Harahan is a little breakfast/lunch spot called Caffe latte Da. Great baked goods, a mean Irish coffee, and killer omelets and hashbrowns.

And if all you can drum up for Kenner is three boring, redux seafood restaurants, you're missing some good eating. Williams Blvd is loaded with South American, Asian, and Mediterranean little holes in the wall restaurant. CHurra's Brazilian meat grill is worth the drive!

Re: “Waffle House opens in Mid-City

Oh, FFS, get over yourselves. Everyone who has ever had a late night out or a road trip knows that the comfort of a pile of scattered, smothered, covered and chunked hash browns is the sh!t.

I'd love to eat Pizza Delicious or Slice every time I want pizza, or really, I prefer Mo's on the west bank. But sometimes I don't want to deal with parking on St. Charles, or navigate hipster douchebag central for a freaking piece of pizza.

Sometimes I want an iced mocha from Starbucks because they do espresso based drinks really well. Ambiance? Depends on the hood. One person's ambiance is another's Sartrian, inescapable Hell.

Re: “Lenny Kravitz fills final 2015 Jazz & Heritage Festival headliner slot

Way too much hype and build up for Lenny Kravitz. I've always found him to be bland and derivative, and, frankly, I think his talents lie in his acting ability more than his musicianship.

Re: “Hey Blake, was there a bakery at the corner of St. Roch and North Derbigny streets?

The correct link for the Vieux Carre survey site is: http://www.hnoc.org/vcs/. The one embedded int he article is broken and has an extra character in it.

Re: “Public Transit Tuesdays: Canal Streetcar

I've been wondering what happened to the homeless guy on the corner of Canal and Broad too. He just disappeared. Someone told me that he was a former Xavier professor who just decided to drop out of society one day, that he couldn't take it anymore.

I hope he is okay too.

Re: “Casting Confederacy

I like Philip Seymour Hoffman as IPR, and I love him working with John C. Reily. I really would have loved to see John Goodman in the role, but he is too old for it now I guess.
