About Kim

Braving my first, raw “pea crab” that I found in my oyster at the Curious Oyster Co. inside St. Roch Market.

Though she was born in the San Francisco Bay Area, Kim Ranjbar felt New Orleans calling her home as soon as she hit puberty. A graduate of granola U (a.k.a. Sonoma State University), Kim took her passion for the written word and dragged it over 2000 miles to flourish in the city she loves.

After over twelve years as a transplant — surviving hurricanes, levee failures, oil spills, boil water advisories and hipster invasions — Kim hopes to eventually earn the status of local and be welcomed into the fold.

  1. Hello Kim

    We will be in New Orleans March 25-29. I’m looking forward to trying as much local food as possible….quality is important. Eg: Crawfish, Jambalaya, Gumbo, Beignets, étouffée, etc…We will be staying in the French Quarter at the Renaissance New Orleans Pere Marquette Hotel. As we are checking in around 10pm on our first day can you recommend something within walking distance from hotel ? I will have a car for one day and will venture further out.

    Thank you.

    1. Hello! Thanks for reaching out. While New Orleans is a great place for late night drinks and music, there just aren’t that many restaurants open after 10pm, especially not ones serving the kind of quality local fare you’re looking for. You might try trekking over to St. Lawrence – a bar/restaurant serving food till 2am. http://www.saintlawrencenola.com/menu.html. And if MiLa (the restaurant in your hotel) is offering a good menu, you might just want to order room service. 😉
