Since 1979, my passion for food and dining in my hometown of New Orleans has evolved into my mission in life. Over the past 29 years I have been the founding owner/chef of 9 restaurants in 5 different cities. All of the restaurants have been committed to serving authentic New Orleans style Creole and Cajun Cuisine. I am always so delighted and fulfilled when I open a new place and a large clientele develops who appreciate all things "In The New Orleans Manner ". What inspires me to continue my craft is knowing that I am not only feeding the souls of customers who already enjoy my style of food, but I am also introducing those from other areas to the authentic foods of my heritage. Not only have I been fortunate to be a part of 9 successful restaurants but I have sold each restaurant to one of my employees; not only were they given the opportunity to be chefs and entrepreneurs, but they also continued my mission of serving authentic Creole and Cajun cuisine in the New Orleans Manner.
