Midnight Menu +1

Hosted ByRay Cannata & Margo Moss

Ray Cannata has eaten at over 750 New Orleans restaurants, so he knows a thing or two about hanging out. Margo Moss has turned Ted's Frostop from a greasy spoon into a considerably less greasy but not quite silver spoon. When the sun goes down on The NOLA Brewing Tap Room in the Irish Channel, Ray and Margo entertain members of New Orleans restaurant community. Their guests bring along a friend, a +1. Anything can happen.

Living Large on the Lakefront – Midnight Menu +1 – It’s New Orleans

Back in the day – pre Katrina and Ivan and a bunch of other wicked storms that killed them off one at a time – the New Orleans Lakefreont was a mecca of seafood restaurants. 


Fitzgerald’s, Sid-Mar’s, Brunings, and more, Lakefront dining was an integral part of growing up in New Orleans.

Eventually they all ended up like this – washed into Lake Pontchartrain beyond repair. And that’s how it’s been since Katrina. Every single restaurant wiped off the face of the earth. Until now. Now there’s Brisbi’s.


Built from the lake and ground up by John Brisbi and spearheaded in the kitchen by Chef David de Felice who literally grew up in the kitchen of his family-owned Pascal’s Manale, Brisbi’s is bringing back the Lakefront.
