New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell, representatives of District B City Councilman Jay Banks, New Orleans Chamber of Commerce CEO & President G. Ben Johnson, and many more joined the family in the new restaurant’s grand opening and ribbon-cutting on August 21.

Matriarch Barbara Chifici spoke about the history of the family and its restaurants, and showed unwavering support in her daughter Chandra Chifici-Scarber’s venture with this new concept. Chifici-Scarber noted that opening the location has added at least 40 new jobs to the area with plans of adding more as they develop.
