Is the Coffee Pot the one that used to be Maxie's Coffee Pot? You sit in a long, narrow courtyard with uneven bricks -- which make the chairs and tables rock but always in different directions -- and lots of huge banana trees. Red Beans and rice with sausage and she-crab soup seem to be specialties.
I make a point of eating there when visiting. Always interesting. Glad it's still around,.

They opened up here in Baton rouge after the storm. Not sure if they're back in NO's or not.

I did make an oops about French Connection. The place is Praline Connection. Didn't think that sounded right. (And their fresh pralines, sold in a small room to the side, are pretty dang good.)

I was wondering. I thought it was wierd that they would name a restaurant the same thing as a store in the mall.

I don't know about this place. I went there last month and was served with probably the worst jambalaya I've ever had. Rice with frozen mixed greens (corn, carrots, peas, lima beans) in what I would describe as a sauce that resembled soy sauce. My wife had the fried chicken and she thought it was OK, but lesser quality than Popeye's.

I was so shocked, as I heard so much good things about this place. The atmosphere at the place is nice and very casual, but our food was awful. Hopefully, we just ordered the worst things on the menu.

The pralines were good, though kind of too hard for my liking. It was a Sunday, so I'm not sure if I got a fresh batch.

Johnny's and Coops are definites but here are a few others.

Mena's is good for breakfast
Margaritaville
Louisiana Pizza Kitchen
The Gumbo Shoppe
Camilla Grille (haven't been there in awhile but I understand it is still open)
Superior Grille (same as above)
The Court of Two Sisters
Arnaud's (I may not have spelled this correctly)
Roumalade (this is a backdoor resturant to arnaud, try the hot dog)

and don't miss having a Lucky Dog, but I would recommend you eat one at the casino or airport rather than the street vendor.
