Awesome review! LOLA is my usual Saturday night spot. You should get back over here soon - they have a fried oyster and pork belly salad (served over micro greens with a buttermilk avocado ranch dressing) that is THE BEST!
And Pontchartrain PoBoys on Dalwill (new location) off of Hwy 22 in Mandeville, across the parking lot from Rouses! Great daily specials, huge meals that can be split, and they serve beer and wine, now, too. Also, the new sushi and habachi place right next door (Kim's). And Kazoku sushi in Mandeville, on Hwy 59 - cheapest and best sushi around! :) I'd be more than happy to take a Gambit reviewer/writer to some of these spots!
Also Mugshots and Casa Garcia on Hwy 190 in Covington, at the Dog Pound Rd./Harrison Ave. light.
This list is definitely not complete: How on earth could LOLA in Covington be left off this list? It's got the best cocktails, lunch specials, homemade soups and the best dinner menu, and their kitchen is in a caboose! PLUS their new renovation has made the new bar a destination all by itself! You also missed Ceasar's Italian Restaurant (phenomenal cannelloni and specials, all handmade in by Chef Ceasar) in Mandeville (on Hwy 22) and Sawasdee, the new Thai restaurant right next door with the best Khao Soi around! You also missed Crabby Shack's and Impastato Cellars in Madisonville. Was this list just recycled from one of the dining issues? I love Gambit, but it's a little disappointing that no one did a web search to check...
