In New Orleans, Every day we Rouler.

“I said this years ago. A friend of mine asked what is New Orleans like? I said New Orleans is like a giant flashing yellow light. Proceed with caution … but proceed. It is not an overly ambitious place, and that’s being complimentary. It has a great identity, and, therefore, it doesn’t look outside itself for intrigue, evolution or labels of progress. People here are proud of their home. You’re proud of your Crescent City. You know your flavor. You know it’s your very own. And if people want to come taste it with you, you welcome them with open arms. But you do not solicit.”
