It’s New Orleans: Out to Lunch

Hosted ByPeter Ricchiuti

OUT TO LUNCH finds economist and Tulane finance professor Peter Ricchiuti conducting business New Orleans style: over lunch at Commander's Palace restaurant. In his 9th year in the host seat, Ricchiuti's learned but uniquely NOLA informal perspective has established Out to Lunch as the voice of Crescent City business. You can also hear the show on WWNO 89.9FM.

Social Impact – Out to Lunch – It’s New Orleans

New Orleans neighborhoods aren’t like the rest of the country. Where else can you live on an expensive street that has potholes that can swallow a 5 year old. Where the streetlights are out but the traffic cameras work perfectly. And there’s a street you’re never quite sure what the name is because it’s never had a sign.

Stepping into this rich tapestry of communities is Neighborlynx, a company that puts all the information about your neighborhood online in one convenient location.

One thing we’re not big on in New Orleans is change. So this might not be the obvious place for a company called Commit Change. But Commit Change seems to be committed to being here. And changing the world.
