“I never realized the importance of a restaurant until I re-opened after Katrina. Everything’s gonna be fine because your neighborhood restaurant is open. I felt the importance of being part of a community at that point where you can really see people come in and feel like they were back to some kind of normalcy even though the city is completely devastated.” [4:15]
