New Orleans is my hometown and I miss it so much. Mainly, it’s the food I miss! It was good to be back and visit the places I normally hung out at. I’m drooling as I look at this post!

My New Orleans trip ended here. If you haven’t been to New Orleans, plan a trip and go! There’s a different vibe with New Orleans. The culture is very rich and you won’t believe the food!

Cheesecake Bistro on St. Charles in New Orleans

by dietingfashions on January 16, 2012

Whenever I visit my in laws, I have to take a trip to New Orleans. I have to say that I miss New Orleans’ cuisine more than anything. My favorite place to dine is Cheesecake Bistro. I miss it’s Spinach and Artichoke dip. I have not found another restaurant that is comparable to Cheesecake Bistro in regards to food or the size of it’s menu. Massive selection, I tell you.

Cheesecake Bistro was originally called Straya’s. I went to my Prom dinner with a group of 20 at Straya’s. Very memorable evening in my life. A bit more info on this place: it’s late owner is Al Copeland, the restaurateur who created Popeyes Chicken franchise.

My husband had the Crawfish Ravioli.

My usual: Stacked Eggplant Napoleon.

If any one is in the New Orleans area, give this restaurant a try. They also recently started a Sunday Brunch Buffet deal with live music. I haven’t had time to experience this yet but hopefully one day.
