Post Katrina New Orleans

While the New Orleans Jewish community continues to rebuild, two of the areas three pre-Katrina kosher establishments have re-opened and are operating normally. Having recently returned from a business trip to the Big Easy, I can provide a first hand report. The Brown family has returned and their kosher oasis Kosher Cajun, which is a full-service delicatessen with a large kosher grocery is fully stocked. Casablanca, an elegant middle eastern restaurant just a few blocks away has also reopened. While there had been a kosher restaurant, Creole Kosher Kitchen, in the French Quarter, the owner, Gideon Daneshrad and his family have relocated to Los Angeles.
