Nearly three months after Hurricane Katrina ravaged New Orleans, chef Emeril Lagasse has reopened the doors of his Nola restaurant yesterday, just after reopening his flagship restaurant there last week. No word yet on the reopening of Delmonico's, the third of the three he runs in the Big Easy.
"There's been a lot of tough moments for me personally," Emeril said recently. "There have been a lot of personal losses; a lot of personal friends lost everything. I'm still here. I'm still smiling. I'm still determined. And we are going to help and do our part to build the city back."
Read more here about Emeril's recent 1.4 million dollar celebrity fundraising effort for further Katrina recovery.
Way to go, and glad to hear you're back.
Good Wednesday, all. Peace.
