Wanna hang with some REAL LOCALS? Take a 7-8 mile drive out EAST ST. BERNARD HWY into oil refinery country, and check out this super family-style restaurant! We became acquainted with owner, CHAD BLANCHARD, through several straight winning years of New Orleans Gumbo Championships! Jenae was impressed with his exotic gumbos, and we made a point to drive out to try more…we ended up becoming good friends with this cooking wizard. It’s been several years now, and I still haven’t been able to read full menu!! Now he has a full bar, and we look forward to getting out there, but he also is in FRENCH QUARTER a lot so we share many meals and fun!
The three best food shots on this Post were Shared by Chad’s close friend, and jazz drummer, ALLYN ROBINSON. Thank you, ALLYN!!
