Friday – December 28, 2012
We had lunch at Katie's Restaurant in New Orleans. This restaurant was featured on Diners, Drive-in’s & Dives in 2011. We had put it on our Bucket List for our next visit to New Orleans. This is a small restaurant, about 20 tables plus a bar, and is located on the corner of Iberville and Telemachus streets in a residential neighborhood. It is quite far from the French Quarter and not within walking distance from there.
Parking is free, but finding an open parking space is difficult. The streets are very narrow and will challenge your parallel parking skills, especially if you have a large SUV or full size Van. Since we have a full size van we found adequate parking to accommodate large vehicles on Bienville Ave. This parking spot put us within two blocks of the restaurant.
Katie’s provides the diner with wonderful tasting food and a friendly and attentive wait staff. We had the Boudreaux Pizza, which was featured on Diners, Drive-ins & Dives. This is a very crispy thin crust pizza with toppings of smoked pork, spinach, whole garlic cloves and several different cheeses.
Do save room for dessert. They have some excellent desserts to choose from. We had a decadent white chocolate covered white and raspberry colored multi-layered piece of cake. It was fantastic!
Conversation can be difficult. Since this is a small restaurant, the noise level from other diners is quite high, but we just considered it part of the charm of this unique restaurant.
We returned to our campsite at the Bayou Segnette State Park in Westwego, Louisiana very content and delighted with our visit to Katie’s Restaurant.
Tomorrow another adventure begins.
