Johnson And Wales In New Orleans?

Recommended Posts

A story in yesterday's Picayune about the World Trade Center, that behemouth at the foot of Canal Street, had this interesting paragraph:

The original proposal by Full Spectrum NY LLC calls for a Johnson and Wales University Culinary Day School, a 7,000-square-foot Gris-Gris Center for Culture and Trade, and another 7,000 square feet of retail space facing the corner of Delta and Poydras streets.

This sounds like good news for New Orleans. Let's hope it happens.

There is a bill up for vote that offers tax credits to "culinary arts and food science infrastructure". 10% for 15,000-150,000 spent, 15% for 150,000-1mil, and 20% for 1 mil and up. Hopefully it passes and that will make them reconsider.

I credit JW for providing the infrastructure in making Charleston a great food city. Just imagine what a bunch of skilled labor could do for a city that's already great.
