Remembering K-Paul’s and Julia Reed

2020 has been a tumultuous year filled with loss – and the toll on our hospitality industry continues with many restaurants having to shutter their doors after decades in business. One of New Orleans’ most significant losses came in July when K-Paul’s Louisiana Kitchen closed permanently. Chef Paul Prudhomme and his wife Kay opened the restaurant in 1979, making it into one of the most popular eating places in the city and among the most influential in the United States.
