There's a really sad article in this week's Gambit about the restaurants of Mid-City and Faubourg St. John. Sounds like the St. John ridge did alright with restaurants like Lola already open for business. But the area around Canal and Carrollton, my old and much beloved hood, fared much worse.
Angelo Brocato's, that much loved emporium of hand made gelatos and sweets, may never open again! That is truly heartbreaking news. Here's what one of the owners has to say: "At the present time we have no idea as to how long it will take for us to reopen or if it is a viable option for us," says Brocato. "Mid-City had made such a great comeback over the years; what a shame it would be if it were left to die by those in power."
It's a sad day in America to read those words.
