Lower Ninth Ward Natives Contribute to Areas Revitalization
The idea was conceived four years ago by siblings, Fred and Keisha Henry, and Tia, the wife of Fred. After enduring an abundance of hurdles and road blocks, on June 30th the trio will finally open the doors of Café Dauphine to the public. In an area still recovering from the effects of Hurricane Katrina, the café will be a “breath of fresh air.” This business will give Lower Ninth Ward/Holy Cross residents a dining option within their own community, a luxury definitely lacking in the area. The restaurant will aid in stimulating the area's economy by offering jobs, thus fostering community pride and resilience.
Since the building’s structure is located in a National Historic District, little change was made to the exterior in an effort to maintain its historical character. However, the exterior was modernized with the application of stucco and the addition of six large windows which reveal panoramic views of old New Orleans architecture of surrounding homes. The inside, on the other hand, was totally remodeled and modernized featuring an open kitchen, intricate wood work, and custom built tables (all the craftsmanship of owner Fred Henry, Jr., whom also served as general contractor of the project).
The menu features Southern cuisine while the atmosphere vibes a casual chic ambiance. Some of the menu items include fried seafood fresh from the Gulf, salads served in crispy tortilla bowls, charbroiled burger, steaks, and Bar-B-Que ribs. Keisha and Tia have added their own signature dishes to the menu which include a Cajun-Asian fusion egg roll named the “Lizardi Roll” and the “Deep Fried Bell Pepper” which is stuffed with lump crabmeat and shrimp. The café also offers healthier alternatives like charbroiled chicken breast, grilled fish and grilled shrimp served with fresh steamed vegetables and salad. All fried foods are prepared in Trans Fat Free cooking oil.
“Our goal is to provide you with the same quality food, superior hospitality, and unique atmosphere that you’d expect to find in the more infamous locales of New Orleans notarized for their outstanding Southern cuisine and culturally rich surroundings. Even more important, we’re proud to offer great food prepared with love and passion!”
|Cafe Degas||(504) 945-5635||Donating 20%||Lunch, Dinner|
Café Degas was named after the 19th century French Impressionist, Hilaire Germain Edgar Degas, who in 1872 visited New Orleans and stayed for a short time down the street at 2306 Esplanade Ave.
French artist and restaurateur, Jacques Soulas, came to New Orleans in 1980, and with his friend Jerry Edgar decided to build a restaurant that would be reminiscent of his homeland, and where diners could experience French Bistro atmosphere (with a New Orleans touch), good food and an inspired Wine List.
They chose the current location for old historic charm, the area's artful and picturesque appeal, and because the available space was just right for the effect they were trying to create.
Space is indeed tight in this small café, and we use the lack of space as an asset. How, you wonder? Well, since there isn't enough space for storage, everything is bought fresh every morning.
Through the years Café Degas has become a standard for quality of food and service, as we continuously try to perfect the art of enticing the palate with our deliciously prepared daily specials and wine selection.
We hope to see you in person soon.
Bon Appetit !!!

|Fausto's Bistro||(504) 833-7121||Donating 25%||Lunch, Dinner|
Small and intimate, Fausto's Bistro has been serving traditional Sicilian-Italian fare to the same happy customers for many years. The loyal, well-heeled crowd comes mainly from the nearby affluent neighborhood of Old Metairie, elevating the atmosphere of this otherwise casual spot. The small tables are set close together, as are the stools along the abbreviated bar, adding to the friendly romance that fills the dining room. A beautiful mural dominates the decor, covering one entire wall, while a colorful collection of plates runs along the perimeter of the restaurant. Two Sicilian brothers, Fausto and Roland di Pietro, run the place, and the menu features their mother's original recipes. Veal saltimbocca with marsala wine and prosciutto is a favorite, as is the frutti di mare(seafood). Don't forget to save room for dessert -- the tiramisu will knock your socks off. -- Stella Hebert

|Who Dat Coffee Cafe||(504) 410-4890||Donating 20%||Breakfast, Brunch, Lunch|
When you grow up in a Cajun family, cooking and eating expertly prepared and perfectly seasoned Louisiana cuisine comes with the territory. At six years old, Nero was taught how to make a roux by his Mom-Mom (grandmother) Jeanne. His natural curiosity in the kitchen led her to build a box for him so he could reach the stove and help prepare meals. He began learning about the restaurant industry early on, assisting in the kitchen at The Anchor Inn in Delcambre, Louisiana at twelve years old, and later working at other establishments in Cajun country. He always knew he wanted to be an entrepreneur, and as an adult, Nero devoted his creative energies into several successful business ventures. He expanded his skill set and knowledge with forays in photography, floral design, event planning and bar and restaurant management. But it was his passion for creating great cuisine that eventually pulled him back into the restaurant industry full time. Shortly after Hurricane Katrina, Nero came back to New Orleans where he built a reputation as a talented server, chef and businessman during his time at Bywater BBQ. In 2009, he began working at Hallowed Grounds, a fledgling neighborhood coffee shop in the Faubourg Marigny. A year later when the opportunity to purchase the business presented itself in 2010, he bought it, then extensively remodeled the building, re-branded it as a coffee shop and casual dining establishment, and renamed on March 5th, 2010, christened it the Who Dat Coffee Cafe. Today, the business has grown significantly, to include a full-bar and extensive breakfast and lunch menu and both on and off-site catering. Chef Nero and Who Dat Coffee Cafe have built a reputation for great-tasting, affordable food, served up by people who care. Through it all, Nero's mission remains the same" "Provide delicious, high quality coffee and cuisine, always prepared with LOVE!"
