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???

  1. Gabrielle? It's now a mediocre Italian rest.

      = Gabrielle (now La Vita---not good and rude ppl)

    2. You can read about what happened to Gabrielle at their website: 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.

        Thanks for that link. We've picked up a few elements of the plight, from relatives, "New Orelans" mag, and from a few sites. That puts it all together.
