Trying to Remember
This restaurant was a pre-Katrina really good restaurant. It was on Esplanade a few blocks from Cabrini High School. Same side as the race track-- What was it's name???
You can read about what happened to Gabrielle at their website: http://www.gabriellerestaurant.com. It is sad on many levels. La Vita is exactly what is described here, but I will also say that they have outdoor seating, which I like, and their pizzas are better than delivery so I take the kids here and they have a great time.
