DeAngelo's Restaurant

Not long after we moved here in 2007, Bob and I, on the recommendation of, well, everyone, tried a popular Italian restaurant here in Lake Charles, DeAngelo's. We loved it. DeAngelo's was our new "favorite restaurant." Then about a week or so later, it burned to the ground. Bummer! Believe me , there aren't too many good Italian restaurants in Lake Charles. There aren't many Italian places, period. Anyway, we heard rumors that they would rebuild. Seemed like it took a long time, a year or more, maybe two. But they finally reopened a couple weeks ago. The fam and I went there tonight. It was crowded, noisy, and the food was excellent. I had Tuscan minestrone and chicken artichoke ravioli. Mmm Mmm. We've got our favorite restaurant back.

What's your favorite restaurant?

I agree, D'Angelo's is my favorite Italian restaurant in Lake Charles. The big chain Italian restaurants cannot compare.

That's a hard one. I would say The Back Porch in Belle Vernon, PA.

We heart DeAngelo's too! One of our favs since they opened the first time. Have you tried the spinach-shrimp foccacia? I hope it is on their new menu. I just try to forget the fact that I will have garlic breath for days after eating it...it is THAT good.

Ever since you posted this I've been trying to think of my favorite restaurant, without success. I guess we don't go out enough! Ben's favorite is Bravo's because they have giant pieces of square paper. Bravo's uses them for tablecloths, but Ben uses them for origami.
