I read recently in "Food and Wine" that Austin Leslie was at a new restaurant. What happened to Chez Helene?
My father-in-law soon-to-be told me that Chez Helene closed in the late '80's, after relocating to the lakefront area because of high crime in Treme. He and Mama Gina were regulars there in the '60's and '70's. They were very fond of one of the hostesses, Kathy, who still occasionally drives by with treats from her family, mirliton's and blackberry preserves and such.
