On the next NOLADrinks Show, we’ll talk about threats to the independent sit-down restaurant. Some say the bubble is about to burst. Issues of over-saturation, copycats, and skyrocketing labor costs are all mentioned as problematic dynamics.

We welcome Robért LeBlanc of LeBlanc+Smith Restaurant Group, owner of such popular New Orleans establishments Sylvain, Cavan, Meauxbar, and Barrel Proof. Also joining us will be Sean Joseph, proprietor of the well-regarded new Uptown spot, Kenton’s. We’ll talk about this phenomenon including the implications here in NOLA.

You can tune in on 990 AM on Thursday, January 26, 2017, if you’re in New Orleans. The podcast will be available the day after (Friday, January 27, 2017) here on NOLADrinks.com or on iTunes, Google Play, and TuneIn Radio.
