      They have a location in BTR now - and say they will soon reopen in NoLa.

        Went by on the Canal St. street car last week and there's a big sign hanging in front of Mandina's that says We Will Return....Let's hope so!

    2. Yeah I ate here in April '05. Had the turtle soup! How badly was the building damaged? Are they renovating it right now?

        Real bad with water above the bar. They are renovating now, I go by occasionally, and it looks as though they have a ways to go yet. Rumor has it that it will be only one dining room with the bar in the back.

          They also opened a place in a Northshore stripmall.

      2. mandina's is now open on the northshore in mandeville, though i have heard the canal street location will be reopening in the next few months. went to the one in mandeville last week and thought it was as good as ever. place looks a lot different, newer, than canal st., so that's kind of weird. but it's worth the trip if you are craving.
