Anyone that pays even passing attention to New Orleans dining knows we have a lot of new restaurants. We are halfway through the year, and according to my notes 28 restaurants have opened in the New Orleans area.
That's roughly one new restaurant every week.
My count does not include chains or new branches of existing restaurants. And I bet that I've missed a few (if I did, let me know in the comment section below).
Will that pace continue in the second half of the year? I doubt it.
The list of announced, upcoming restaurants is short, although it includes high-profile additions such as Cavan Co. from the Sylvain team and theWilla Jean bakery from John Besh's group.
