Ray Cannata has eaten at over 750 New Orleans restaurants, so he knows a thing or two about hanging out. Margo Moss has turned Ted's Frostop from a greasy spoon into a considerably less greasy but not quite silver spoon. When the sun goes down on The NOLA Brewing Tap Room in the Irish Channel, Ray and Margo entertain members of New Orleans restaurant community. Their guests bring along a friend, a +1. Anything can happen.
If you’re the type of person who love’s sushi with a passion, then you’re probably like Cheryl Lemoine. If you’re the type of person who creates an entire festival around sushi, and then comes onto Midnight Menu+1 to talk about it, then you most likely are Cheryl Lemoine.
Cheryl sits down with Ray and Margo this week to discuss the second annual New Orleans Sushi Fest and Competition. But Cheryl isn’t just the brains behind Sushi Fest; she also works for Renaissance publishing and enjoys rabbit brains when traveling in Spain.
If sushi isn’t your thing, have no worries there will still be plenty of other types of food at Sushi Fest, prepared by some of the New Orleans’ finest restaurateurs, such as Scot Craig, owner of Katie’s Restaurant and Bar. Scot is also Cheryl’s plus one so he joins in to talk about first purchasing Katie’s, employing his mother, and why skipping law school was the best decision he’s ever made.
