What's for dinner? And lunch?

Foodie Norman Kinsey caught up with us at Brookshire’s on Line Avenue.

He had in hand a story from The Dallas Morning News, "Shreveport-Bossier City new destination for foodies." (Isn’t that impressive?)

The headline writer called it "a nearby melting pot of culinary originality." (More impressing.)

The writer talked about King Cakes sampled at Julie Anne’s Bakery & Cafe. ("For me, raisin bread on the side offsets the sweetness of the gold, purple and green Mardi Gras icing.")

At Lila’s Cakes & Chocolate, vegetable soup was an attraction. (".... fresh vegetable soup brimming with cabbage, squash, potatoes, carrots and beans, plus chicken salad, made with watermelon instead of pickle relish.")

When she stopped by Ristorante Giuseppe, she saw the kitchen viewed from a nearby table. ("Watch the pastry chef shape yeast rolls as the butter melts on the one in your hand.")

And she found "incredible" chocolate at The Chocolate Crocodile on the Louisiana Boardwalk.

Share with me some of your own favorite eateries and why you like them.
