    Yes, those are the only 2 kosher restaurants in New Orleans. Both are located in Metairie, very close to each other, approximately 20 minutes from the Quarter/Downtown.

      I was in New Orleans about 6 or 7 years ago. There was a kosher restaurant in the French Quarter. I don't remember it's name. I have no clue whether it's still there.

      New Orleans is an extraordinarily difficult city in which to eat . . . .

        That was Creole Kosher Kitchen. It is no longer in business.

        I thought it reopened -- any news on if it did / will?

          I heard Katrina wiped everything out and the family left to Los Angeles...but check to make sure.

            Did not make it to Casablanca but made it twice to Cajun New York Deli and I am happy to say they are open for business - service and the food was excellent. If you are going to New Orleans defnitely make this a must stop - not only prepared food but a decent kosher grocery as well.

              The name of the Deli is actually "Kosher Cajun" Deli with an entrance on Severn in Metairie. Great place for lunch, shopping or an early supper - it closes at 7pm. The restaurant in the French Quarter was re-opened for a very short time after the storm, but the owner lost his home, his synagogue, and his wife and kids were out in California, so he closed and left. Sorry. When you're here stop in and visit me at Dashka Roth Contemporary Jewelry & Judaica, at 332 Chartres St. (www.dashkaroth.com). I have a complete listing of all 7 synagogues here that I can give you. Have a great time!

                Hi:

                Does anyone know if there is public transportation available from the French Quarter to either of the kosher restaurants? If possible, please reply to davidsadek@firstfi.com Thanks
