In sore tomorrow creole roots as the name of C reassigned courage or bond to be on the lookout for. Okay we were talking about revolution earlier and you got a restaurant and New Orleans and also one in Jackson Mississippi where he revolution known. Well you know revel dined here for revolution always said new artist certainly didn't need another good drive from I mean this. So many aren't comic restaurant here in some grade a top chills of the world right here I mean if you wanna eat. Great food you become the new on the hospitality is unmatched in the world and you look on element of open graph from twelve countries. Unload hospitality in new loans and odd genuine people are. And I'll go to people we are very. I'm very constructive in narrow and Arab criticism on a conversation about food. And when I went somebody tells you about food in this city you know they would talk. So a new honest they'd need another. Good restaurant. But do on it really needed a restaurant. That is part of what I'll love to do preserve traditions and I wanted to show. Evolution of Louisiana food I want to show how we went from those cast on Ponce. Into more of the classic style of cooking we do today but still recognizable. So I'll win this announcement came to me many years ago figure we just celebrated fifth anniversary. Where it's at NASA came to me and I am asking if I would consider doing a restaurant farm. Mom median answer was no. Because I didn't think new laws to be great read it. Which let your mind well. More moral last year. Of me saying no and a year of them coming back and ask what what would it take and eventually outfit if you allow me. To design and build. And construct a restaurant just kind of move out of my way. And and let me do what I think New Orleans really you may want and that's a restaurant that showcases. All antique Louisiana food as it has grown over the years but people it's filtered down to a great combo. I'm may be willing to do it and suggesting that they had an agent the well at this and F there was generous enough to say OK good we really want you to do. And we're gonna get out you William that you do it and of course revolution was blown. And our our mission there is very very sample. And that is to look at the foods had me at Louisiana famous. And how if they continue to evolve. And how did he. Arrive at plea today and we went a few we lose a few years nobody at the end of the day. It's it's all about. About making sure that people can fit now reference from around the world. And really taste of foods as you solved in new laws and over 300 years and there's been very successful up and New Orleans was supporting us and we. And and and coming up it offered advice to those as well we'd take it by freely whale. OK we have another caller here it's Gregory on the line. Come on and Gregory. A broad view and do. Here.
