It's always super exciting to discover new restaurants in the area and my inpromtu visit to the recently opened Little Italy's Pies and Pints in Five Points South was highly anticipated! Owned and operated by a father-daughter team with previous stakes in the Helena Little Italy's Pizza location, this pizza spot is among great company in a city that seems to be obsessed with handcrafted pies.
A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to tag along with a friend to NOLA! Sure New Orleans is fun and history rich but who are we kidding, the most important thing about NOLA is the AWESOME FOOD! Before I packed my bags, I reached out to a couple of my food savvy friends and here's a glimpse of my attempt to eat my way through NOLA!
FOODIE DAY 1: I grabbed breakfast at the hotel and mapped out my first food stop. I knew I wanted to find some good catfish and after making my way to Magazine Street I ended up at Joey K's for lunch!
I tried out the All U Can Eat Catfish. The plate was accompanied by a side salad and a couple of slices of toasted white bread could be found buried under an overflowing plate of freshly fried french fries and catfish
VERDICT: Joey K's staff was an attentive bunch and managed the busy spot well!
My food came out pretty quickly.The salad was super fresh and the fries were tasty. The buried toast was hard and I would have preferred a hush puppy alternative.
