The New Orleans Restaurant Count

Friday, August 29, 2008

When Katrina ripped through New Orleans, only a handful of restaurants survived the initial blow. Today 955 restaurants are up and thriving -- that's according to food critic and radio host Tom Fitzmorris' citywide restaurant count. Fitzmorris talks with The Takeaway about the city's enduring spirit.
Guest: Tom Fitzmorris, host of "The Food Show with Tom Fitzmorris" and author of the cookbook "New Orleans Food." He runs the Web site The New Orleans Menu.
