What an amazing chef we found in Chef Karen. I learned so much about Cajun and Creole cuisine. There's no regrets for joining this fun time and learning to make an amazing gumbo. The conversation was first class as well. What an amazing place.

Great food, better chef, Chef Karen took time not only to help us prepare 4 wonderful dishes full of flavor, but to give some background as to origins of each dish. We came away with a thorough knowledge of not only how to physically prepare...More

Sitting pretty across the Mississippi River from the
rambunctious French Quarter, the Crescent City’s
second oldest neighborhood is as historic and as
scenic as any – just a lot less showy about it. With
its numerous 19th and early 20th century homes and
plentiful parks and riverside green space for cycling
and walking, subdued and low key Algiers yields the
best views of New Orleans and offers a quiet haven
