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.

Drive and Re-Drive – Out to Lunch – It’s New Orleans

When was the last time you bought a car? After you bought it, if it was new, did you think you could have gotten a better deal? If it was used, did you notice something a few days later that you’d wished you’d seen before you bought it? 

Those days of car buyer remorse are over, thanks to a New Orleans startup business called ReDrive.

If you’d rather not drive, and prefer to be driven, Peter’s other lunch guest can help you out. He’s not an Uber driver. He’s the owner of Nicoll’s Limousine and Shuttle, Mike Nicoll. If you’ve seen a giant stretch Hummer on the road, or a beautiful Rolls Royce with a bride in the back, or prom kids in any number of shiny black limos, you’ve seen Mike’s fleet at work.

Peter and guests are talking about a revolutionary new way to buy or sell a car, and a traditional, luxurious way to ride around in cars, on Out to Lunch at Commander’s Palace.
