Corner Bar & Grill, New Orleans, La

New Orleans 019

There’s a little bar & grill by the river, down in New Orleans.  It’s probably one of my favorite little places to go to eat lunch, because it’s laid back, they serve a large portion of rich, chicken gumbo with jambalaya in the middle instead of rice (two of my favorite things on this planet are gumbo and jambalaya), and they have crispy-on-the-outside, savory and tangy-on-the-inside fried pickles with a ranch dressing dip. Fried pickle chips are delicious. Just try it. You’ll like it. Now I sound like your mother!

So if you’re ever in the area and you want a cool little sports bar with plenty of big windows to dine at, check out the Corner Bar & Grill on St. Peter and Decatur. It’s a pretty relaxed place, so I wouldn’t suggest going there for a quick bite to eat if you’re in a rush to go somewhere. But if you’re tired from walking, if you want a place to sit down, and if you wanna grab a beer, some fried pickles, and maybe a sandwich or their signature “Gumbalaya,” this place is where it’s at. Prices are moderate but service (in true southern fashion) is admittedly slow. The food is a little inconsistent, but watching sports on any of their HDTv’s or people-watching are both fair game. But, you’re in the south. Relaaax. And let me know what you think!
