Sal & Judy's Restaurant Review

: Nothing ever changes at Sal & Judy’s, and no one who eats there would want it to. Chef Sal Impastato arrived in America in 1960, and began stirring his 15-gallon pots of real Sicilian dishes. Casual and homey, this place is across Lake Pontchartrain, about a 40-minute drive from New Orleans, and specializes in Creole-Italian cooking with Impastato’s solid Sicilian foundations. Trout Belle meunière is stuffed with seasoned breadcrumbs, and the whole artichoke is heartwarmingly good. The most popular dessert is simplicity itself: Baci (kisses in Italian), composed of vanilla ice cream, roasted almonds, a dash of Amaretto and whipped cream. The wide-ranging wine list hits many corners of the globe, including, of course, Italy. Check out the Saracco Moscato for dessert or as an apéritif. Prices are low, portions are huge and service is country-style friendly.
