City Report: The Big Easy Does It

by Ellen Johnson

The only thing stronger than a category 5 hurricane is the determination of those left in its wake. Take that, Katrina! Although rebuilding New Orleans will take years, a fertile outcropping of new culinary ventures and home-design boutiques are making the city a fresh kind of sweet and savory. Call it category 5 reclamation! ... On Magazine Street is Ledbetter Fullerton Architects designed Sucré, a new luxury dessert boutique full of handcrafted chocolates, fresh gelato and pastries by renowned pastry chef Tariq Hanna. Many of the shop's products are made with local ingredients.
