The New Orleans murder rate showed a sharp decline in the first half of 2013 — and so did armed robberies in two NOPD districts. But the downward trend in armed robberies isn’t citywide. By Robert Morris | Uptown Messenger


he procession of high-profile Uptown robberies may seem unabated: a Garden District couple held up on their front porch, masked men barging into Cooter Brown’s in search of the safe and a trio of very young teens in skeleton masks demanding money at gunpoint on Broadway Street, all in June. Despite the perception these incidents create, and in spite of a generally shrinking New Orleans Police Department (NOPD), Uptown has seen a decrease of 50 percent or more in the number of armed robberies reported in 2013 from the same time period last year, according to statistics compiled from NOPD sources. Uptown New Orleans is divided fairly neatly into two police districts, which are divided at Napoleon Avenue: the 6th District includes Hoffman Triangle, Central City, Garden District, Irish Channel and Lower Garden District, while the 2nd District covers Hollygrove, Carrollton, the university area, Freret and much of Broadmoor. As of June 28, the 2nd District reported 22 armed robberies

for the year, down from 40 this time last year — a 45 percent reduction. The 6th District reported 20 armed robberies, down from 53 last year — a reduction of 62 percent. Taken together, the two districts have seen a 55 percent reduction in armed robberies. (The NOPD tracks armed robberies and simple robberies separately. Adding the simple robberies into the armed robbery numbers does not change the trend much, however; the

two districts are down 56 percent for armed and simple robberies combined, for example.) “It’s a meaningful reduction,” said professor George Capowich, a criminologist at Loyola University New Orleans. “If it drops from 100 to 45, there’s no doubt that’s statistically significant.” The trend for armed robberies isn’t consistent around the city — three districts have seen reductions, though not as large as those in the 2nd and 6th, and three have seen increases. It could be argued that the 2nd and 6th Districts’ improvements over last year account for all the robbery reduction in the city. The NOPD reported 294 armed robberies this year — down 44 from 338 this time last year — while the 2nd and 6th districts are down 51 robberies together. NOPD Superintendent Ronal Serpas, speaking at the department-wide COMSTAT meeting June 28, attributed the general reduction in violent crime to use of data-driven deployment of patrol vehicles. A NOPD computer system analyzes the frequency of all crime — from the traditional focus areas of rape, robbery and murder down to less serious incidents such as theft and car crashes — and creates a map of “hot spots” in the district, often as specific as an individual intersection or stretch of a few blocks. A dedicated officer is then sent to those hot spots, and in theory, his or her presence either convinces potential troublemakers to go

  “People’s perceptions and  their fear of crime are affected by a lot of things. Certainly  one of them is, ‘What’s the  crime rate?’” – GeorGe CapowiCh, LoyoLa University CriminoLoGist

Serpas noted the reduction in violent crime despite a force that’s 20 percent smaller than it was just two or three years ago, and said the only way to explain it is through more effective police deployment. with new recruits now in the academy, more officers should soon be headed onto the streets, increasing the manpower available to be dedicated to those directed patrols, Serpas said. Second District Cmdr. Paul Noel and 6th District Cmdr. Bob Bardy offer additional, somewhat related explanations. In 2012, both districts suffered from several robbery sprees allegedly committed by one person or a small group, such as a “clique” of robbers in the Irish Channel targeting taxi drivers, or a rash of robberies in the university area last summer. Such a spree — a hand-


elsewhere, or results in an arrest that takes a criminal off the street. even if that hot spot is nowhere near the site of the nearest robbery — one frequent spot in the 6th District, for example, is the intersection of Martin Luther King Boulevard and South Claiborne Avenue, because of the high number of car crashes, though it is rarely the site of robberies — the pressure on criminals is intended to reduce the overall amount of crime. Loyola’s Capowich consults with the NOPD on its implementation of the data-driven policing, and said the approach to these patrols is based on the best research available. “Random patrol is not very effective all by itself,” Capowich said. “Because crime isn’t random, patrolling randomly — you wouldn’t expect it to be all that effective. … what a directed strategy like that does is it increases uncertainty for the offenders. It looks like, ‘There’s too great a chance I might get caught,’ so they might leave the area.”

Promising trend area, the Allen family in the central part of the district, and the 3NG group in the Hoffman Triangle area — that led to dozens of arrests. “The last three Fridays in a row, we’ve had some surprises for you,” Bardy said to 6th District residents at June’s community meeting shortly after the most recent indictments. “i’m really happy with it. This is a long-term, not a Band-Aid, fix.” The level of violence in New Orleans can be difficult to describe solely with statistics. The city has the highest or secondhighest rate of murders per capita in the country (though numbers from the first half of 2013 show a sharp reduction), which is the statistic criminologists rely on most because of its lack of subjectivity. Most times, the presence of a dead body makes the crime indisputable, tough to hide behind fuzzy classifications or inaccurate crime reports. But New Orleans officials frequently counter that the murder problem is relatively contained to a small subset of society involved in criminal enterprises and doesn’t reflect life for most people in the city. Robberies, police officials say, may be a better indicator. “Armed robberies are a way we measure violence in society,” Bardy said at the June community meeting. Robber-

ies are most often committed against strangers, unlike murders, which typically are committed among acquaintances. “it’s a measure of aggression in society,” he said. Overall violent crime rates in New Orleans are far lower than the murder rates, and robbery rates bear that out in comparison to other cities. The Crescent City saw about 3 robberies per 1,000 people in 2012, according to the FBi database. That’s around the middle of the pack for similar-sized cities in the region — Atlanta and Memphis saw robbery rates of more than 5 per 1,000 people; Birmingham, Ala., Baton Rouge and Jackson, Miss. all recorded rates around 4.5 robberies per 1,000 people; Nashville’s rate was similar to New Orleans, at 2.8; Mobile, Ala. was 1.8 and Austin, Texas was 1.2. so if New Orleans’ robbery rates are truly falling, should New Orleanians feel safer? Perhaps, said Capowich — until the next shocking robbery, or until the victim is someone you know. “People’s perceptions and their fear of crime are affected by a lot of things. Certainly one of them is, ‘what’s the crime rate?’ so if that continues, it would have an effect,” Capowich said. “But even if it continues, and suddenly there’s a rash of high-profile incidents, that improved perception is easily erased.”

ful of robberies in a few days’ time — can quickly push robbery statistics through the roof. As the year progressed, some of those perpetrators were arrested, taking them off Uptown streets — such as the gang allegedly involved in the carjacking on Camp street that left attorney sandy Kaynor severely injured, or the suspect in the robbery of Dat Dog on Freret street. And this year in general has seen a strong pattern of arrests as Noel has made reducing armed robberies the top priority for the district. in the 2nd District, for example, detectives currently have a 43 percent clearance rate, Noel said — well above the national average of about 25 percent for cities of similar size. “we really don’t believe that’s an accident,” Noel told the NOPD leadership at a recent departmental COMsTAT meeting. He praised the 2nd District detectives saying, “They solve these cases. we’re capturing these guys and getting them off the streets.” The 6th District has seen a robberyclearance rate closer in line with national averages, but its overall violent crime numbers also have plummeted — down 40 percent for the year. Bardy attributes that to a string of major indictments against alleged 6th District area gangs — the 110ers in the irish Channel

former fBi BoSS to inveStigate Bp claimS adminiStrator Former FBi Director Louis Freeh will head up the investigation into an office that runs BP’s oil disaster settlement fund. the company already has cut checks to impacted businesses and residences and paid billions of dollars in cleanup costs. u.s. District Judge Carl Barbier, who presides over cases related to the 2010 Deepwater Horizon disaster and ensuing settlements, appointed Freeh July 2. the latest investigation stems from allegations that a law firm provided attorney Lionel Sutton III kickbacks from settlement claims he referred to the firm before he began working under BP claims administrator Patrick Juneau. BP also has accused Juneau of changing the terms of settlements to award billions of dollars in unnecessary claims, though Barbier defended Juneau. sutton resigned in June, and now Freeh will lead a probe into the office. the 5th u.s. circuit court of appeals in new Orleans will hold a hearing July 8 to determine if Juneau played by the rules. Freeh served as FBi director from 1993 to 2001, and in 2011 he was hired by Pennsylvania state university’s board of trustees to investigate allegations of child molestation by Penn state assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.

As for the Tricentennial Consortium’s proposal, it’s hard to improve on the description by the Bureau of Governmental Research (BGR), which called it “an unspecified iconic tourist attraction.” Even more confusing, according to the BGR: The tower concept described in the RFP is merely a “placeholder” — which makes the rendering shown to the public meaningless. The tourism leaders pushing this proposal no doubt have good intentions, but their plan lacks specificity. The consortium’s plan was dealt a blow when Gov. Bobby Jindal vetoed legislation that would have allowed the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center to spend millions of dollars to facilitate it. That was the sole source of initial funding in the consortium’s RFP, and without it the entire proposal seems to be in doubt. An initial hearing on redevelopment was held last week at City Hall. The members of the Redevelopment Committee

A 300-year-old city deserves more specificity before handing over valuable public land for a so-called ‘iconic structure.’ were told to submit any questions they had by the middle of this week. Another meeting will be held at the end of July, and the committee will make its recommendation shortly after that. The city is expected to make its final decision by Sept. 1. At last week’s meeting, both the public and committee members had a lot of questions, few of which were answered. No doubt many more questions will need to be answered between now and then, but one thing’s for sure: A 300-year-old city deserves more specificity before handing over valuable public land for a so-called “iconic structure.” The last time New Orleans sought to create an iconic structure downtown, we got the Piazza d’Italia — and not one American in 100 would be able to identify it as a New Orleans landmark. In our view, neither a Ferris wheel, nor a miniMardi Gras, nor a placeholder fits the bill for a city as unique as New Orleans.

ew Orleans’ tercentennial is coming up in 2018, and city leaders already are preparing for the occasion. Right now much of the discussion revolves around 2 Canal Street (aka the International Trade Mart), the empty building that once held the offices of the World Trade Center and is owned by the City of New Orleans. The city put out a request for proposals (RFP) in January to redevelop the site, and three proposals were submitted by the April deadline. Each has a very different vision for the plot of land at the foot of Canal Street. Gatehouse Capital proposes keeping 2 Canal Street and converting it into a mixed-use structure that would include a W Hotel and 280 rental units on the upper floors. The plan also calls for a nearby five-story structure that would include parking, an outdoor pool and a “live music area” overlooking the Mississippi River. Gatehouse also proposes a “Sky Wheel” — a permanent Ferris wheel over the river — as an additional tourist draw. James H. Burch’s proposal also would include a hotel, along with “luxury office space,” 88 residential units and a variety of glitzy (if not plain gimmicky) features, including a glass “Monument to the People of New Orleans,” “a glassenclosed studio kitchen with audience seating for the celebrity chefs of New Orleans,” a nightly “Mini Mardi Gras,” a folk music club by Danny O’Flaherty and a jazz supper club bearing the name of Kermit Ruffins. The third plan is by a group calling itself the Tricentennial Consortium, which consists of New Orleans tourism and marketing leaders, including the Audubon Nature Institute, the Convention & Visitors Bureau, the Tourism Marketing Corporation and the Louisiana Restaurant Association. This group proposes tearing down the building and constructing “an iconic structure that will become a universally recognized symbol for New Orleans.” The new structure would be called Tricentennial Tower. Renderings show a giant glass structure that looks something like a spiral vase. It would house yet another Audubon project, a wetlands center — not far from the Aquarium of the Americas and the Audubon Insectarium. Whatever the final decision on 2 Canal Street itself, both “iconic structures” strike us as boondoggles. Gatehouse’s “Sky Wheel” is derivative of any number of other “iconic” Ferris wheels, including the London Eye and Seattle’s Great Wheel, which opened just last year in the city’s tourism district. Las Vegas is building two giant Ferris wheels on its Strip and is considering a third. Why New Orleans would want to copy such an unoriginal idea is a mystery. Besides, New Orleans already has an iconic space on the Mississippi River. It’s called

Le Petit Theatre du Vieux Carre reopens with a refreshed look and renewed mission. By WILL COVIELLO


Le Petit reopens Friday, July 19, with a staged reading of Nora and Delia Ephron’s Love, Loss, and What I Wore directed by Carl Walker and starring a rotating cast including New Orleans native and Broadway star Mary Louise Wilson (Grey Gardens, Cabaret), Leslie Castay, Janet Shea, Lara Grice, Nell Nolan, Carol Sutton and others. The production originally was scheduled as an addition to the 2013 season, but delays in renovations and rescheduling have made it the reopening show. Lombardi, the 2010 Broadway play about legendary Green Bay Packers coach Vince Lombardi, still will open the official season, but in September instead of last January, as originally planned. Delays in renovations of old buildings are nothing new in New Orleans. If anything, the extended closure and financial crisis have helped remind locals of their affection for Le Petit, Worley says. page 16

Gambit > > JULY 9 > 2013


etween meetings with members of the board of directors and part-time staff overseeing season ticket sales and technical work, Cassie Steck Worley is sitting in the balcony of Le Petit Theatre du Vieux Carre. A crew is installing stage lights in the backstage rafters. She officially started serving as the theater’s executive director the week prior. Before that, she was president of the board of directors for four years, but she’s been active with the theater for much longer. “I’ve played a lot of roles at Le Petit,” she says, smiling at the double meaning. Worley first appeared on Le Petit’s stage in 1978 in Dracula, and as Louise in Gypsy in 1982. Board member Bryan Batt sang in the chorus of Gypsy after Worley convinced him to audition. “It looks the same as it always did,” she says. In spite of being closed for more than two-and-a-half years, having half of the building sold to the Dickie Brennan & Co. restaurant group and reconfiguring backstage facilities, the theater will look very familiar to returning patrons. “It’s not a new theater,” Worley says. “It’s Le Petit with a new coat of paint, new carpeting — looking good and ready to open.”



Cassie Steck Worley, former president of Le Petit’s board, became the theater’s executive director in June.

restaurant would compromise the theater; others preferred deals that did not involve giving up the corner space. The Brennan deal allowed the theater to retire its debt, pay for new renovations and create a $500,000 endowment, Worley says. The board rewrote its bylaws and articles of incorporation, making it solely accountable for managing the theater. The board also created subcommittees to guide development, finances and production. Splitting the building has not affected the auditorium. The 368 seats are the same as before the sale. Renovations include new carpet, new light and sound boards and installation of permanent wheelchairaccessible seating.

The front of the house is altered. The lobby (now named for the law firm Jones Walker, which contributed 200 hours of legal work during the sale) has an entrance directly from the street. The former lobby is now used by Tableau, and the courtyard is shared. An additional staircase to the balcony seats was added on one side of the theater. The balcony also will have direct access to a room at Tableau that will provide bar service during show intermissions. Backstage spaces have changed considerably. Dressing rooms used to be on the third floor in an area now used as a private dining room at Tableau. Le Petit built new men’s and women’s dressing rooms on its side of the complex and added office space. Renovations to the orchestra pit will allow use of the space for educational

programs during the day. Le Petit gave up a large amount of mostly unused space in the backstage wing on the Chartres Street side. “We had a green room the size of a football field,” Batt says. “No one has that. That has saved the theater — the sale of that green room and the offices. We didn’t need it. All that space wasn’t being used. … We (still) have more backstage space than the New York Theatre Workshop. We, technically, are an off-Broadway-size house. We have 365 seats. The New York Theatre Workshop gave us Rent, Once, which is on Broadway now, Peter and the Starcatcher. We just have to be creative … “You can do so much with so little,” Batt adds. “The original Angels in America was done in a black box theater page 20

t’s easy to feel like you’re onstage while dining at Tableau, especially if your table is in the main dining room near one of the windows. People coursing past the building en route to Jackson Square gaze in at you, at the server bringing plates of crabmeat and steaks, at the gleaming columns, iron chandeliers and sweeping staircase. There’s a lot to take in at Tableau, from the elegant lobby and picturesque courtyard to the marble-topped bar and open kitchen to the warren of private dining rooms and balconies on the upper two floors. For anyone familiar with this part of the French Quarter, it all represents a remarkable change. When restaurateur Dickie Brennan and his company opened Tableau in April, they reanimated a corner by Jackson Square that had been battened down behind shutters. The restaurant Muriel’s Jackson Square did a similar service for the square’s downriver corner when it opened in 2001. But one big difference for Tableau, and the inspiration behind the restaurant, is its special relationship with Le Petit Theatre du Vieux Carre. The restaurant and the theater are different ventures that operate cooperatively. They share a common facade and courtyard but are in fact two separate buildings fused together. “Think of it in thirds,” says Steve Pettus, managing partner of the Dickie Brennan & Co. restaurant group. “The restaurant has a third, the theater has a third and we share a third — the lobby, the courtyard and the restrooms.” For the visitor, however, it all seems to flow together. During performances, theater patrons can avail themselves of both the main bar and a second bar upstairs reached directly from the theater’s balcony seating area, adding a new social aspect to a night of theater. The restaurant offers group dining packages that include private dining rooms and then a stroll over to the show.


Dickie Brennan greets slow-food advocate Poppy Tooker at Tableau.

“We want every show sold out every night, and we can help with that goal,” Pettus says. Of course, Tableau needs to fill its own seats too. To do that, Brennan’s company has built a restaurant that looks, functions and tastes as if one of the French Creole grandes dames had undergone a timely modernization. Chef Ben Thibodeaux is a Lafayette native who was previously chef de cuisine at Dickie Brennan’s restaurant Palace Cafe. His menu is rooted in oldschool Creole tradition, with shrimp remoulade, fried eggplant sticks, turtle soup and egg dishes like eggs Sardou, served as dinner entrees. More contemporary dishes are always close at hand, including crab claws in truffle vinaigrette, a large rib-eye paired with roasted

marrow and barbecue shrimp over goat cheese grits. The restaurant design is classic French Quarter, richly imbued with detail and art, all cleverly wrapped around the necessities of a major modern restaurant. Staff members guide diners on tours of the interconnected upper rooms like docents at a museum. Many of these rooms lead to the broad wraparound balcony with views of Jackson Square.

with no set. Just lighting and costumes and the brilliant words. If it’s done well, you don’t need hydraulics and hundreds of thousands of dollars in costumes.” Keeping costs in line is a major focus as the theater resumes operations. In the past, the jobs of artistic director and theater manager were consolidated in one position, Batt says. “I am an artist,” he says. “I know I will spend too much to make something look great — even if I have to write too many checks. Someone has to say, ‘No.’ That’s why the checkbook is on the business side.” The theater never had an endowment before, and fundraising is an ongoing effort. There isn’t a capital campaign in place, but Worley is fundraising for specific events and programs. She found funding for educational programs with Good Shepherd School and Joseph S. Clark Preparatory High School. She says the theater also wants to partner with local nonprofits on some shows and programs. The theater hasn’t begun to sell individual tickets for shows yet, but Worley says the number of season subscriptions is double what they were when the theater closed. Marketing outreach, however, has not reached far beyond announcing the plays in the season. Community engagement is a new focus for Worley and the board. New board president Bruce Hoefer is a former chairman of the board of Cafe Reconcile, the

nonprofit restaurant industry training program for at-risk youth. He’s also on the board of Good Shepherd School, and he’s pushed the theater to reach out to area schools, including Joseph S. Clark, McDonogh 35 and others. Worley has initiated connections with Dillard University’s theater department and the University of New Orleans’ theater administration department. “One of the main thrusts for me being on the board was community outreach,” Hoefer says. “Because of my experience with Cafe Reconcile, and I’m on the board of Good Shepherd School, I wanted to make sure that our mission is not just to put on professional-level theater, not just to preserve the heritage, the tradition and the historic building, but also community outreach. We put this into our articles of incorporation, we want to give the underserved and at-risk boys and girls in the community exposure to the dramatic arts through theater education.” Batt says seeing a production of Bye Bye Birdie got him excited about theater. Whether that turns into a career or a lifelong interest, it’s good for a community theater. “The main missions of the theater are to produce great plays and musicals for the community, but also to educate a future audience,” Batt says.

In addition to brands like Poggenpohl, Dacor, U-Line, Bosch and La Cornue, Nordic Kitchens offers custom-design consultations and customer service that Shaw calls exceptional. “We do a lot of hand-holding with our clients,” he says, laughing. “I tell clients that if you’re renovating, it’s the most miserable experience — it’s not a quick process, it’s not an overnight process, and it’s not comfortable to live without a kitchen. But in the end, the product they get is going to be life-changing.” Nordic Kitchens will host an upcoming series of cooking classes. “We have clients who’ve never cooked before and are now coming back to us and saying they want to take cooking classes because they are enjoying their kitchens so much,” Shaw says. “They want to stay home more, and eat in more, and entertain at home. Their feelings about their home have changed.”

Not so at Nordic Kitchens & Baths (1818 Veterans Memorial Blvd., Metairie, 504-888-2300; www.nordickitchens. com) earlier this month, when people chatted, sipped wine and watched a cooking demonstration by chef Garth Blackburn of SubZero/Wolf Appliances before digging into a meal prepared in the showroom.

Nordic Kitchens president Randall Shaw says it’s a fun way to let customers know what’s new in kitchen design. “Customers might see a steam oven and think, ‘What would I do with that, besides steam vegetables?’” Shaw says. “They don’t realize they could cook sous-vide style (with meat parboiled in sealed plastic bags) or cook bread in it, or use it instead of a microwave, because it refreshes the food while it reheats. “So much has changed since your basic cooktop-and-oven range,” Shaw says. “Steam ovens, built-in coffeemakers, [combination] ovens, griddles, grills, in-counter steamers and fryers, induction cooktops. There are so many new products. … The reason for our events is to get people into our showroom and see what we have, and try to educate them.” Nordic Kitchens and Baths started as a small shop featuring European cabinetry and has become a supplier of

local Alejandro de los Rios shares his experience with the 30-day Eat Local Challenge.


Gambit > > JULY 9 > 2013

n May 31, the Rouses on Baronne Street hosted a kickoff party for The New Orleans Eat Local Challenge (ELC), which entreats participants to eat foods grown or sourced within 200 miles of New Orleans for 30 days. As a participant, I came on a dual mission: Get free food and booze, and figure out what I was in for. NOLA Locavores co-founder Lee Stafford and members of the Hollygrove Market and Farm created the enent to raise awareness of local foods. Now in its third year, the challenge has grown to include 51 participating restaurants, which feature dishes made with all-local ingredients; a mobile phone app; cocktail contest and scavenger hunt. At the kickoff party, Stafford told attendees the goal was to get them to scrutinize the origins of their food and to educate participants about how many local foods were available to them. I asked Stafford to give me a preview of my next 30 days. “The first day is the hardest,” he said. “Everything is new and you have to restock your fridge. But once you get stocked up, you should find it gets easier.” This wasn’t the case for me. I won’t mince words: From a practical standpoint, I found it pretty much impossible to eat only locally sourced foods. By restricting my diet to food grown within 200 miles, I eliminated a significant number of my dietary staples. No more gumbo, etouffee or po-boys, all of which use flour as a key ingredient. It took a lot of time to prepare, cook and clean up after every meal — time I have only because I work from home. There’s also the issue of cost. Meat and dairy purchases caused the biggest sticker shock. “Meat is more expensive and it should be,” Stafford said. “Meat is harder to produce. Local meat is all grass-fed, and it’s an animal.” The rising food bill was one of many crises. On several occasions, I questioned the entire endeavor and thought about quitting. I proclaimed to anyone within earshot that I had never cleaned my kitchen so much only to see it remain so messy. I wondered why certain locally owned restaurants weren’t OK to patronize just because they cooked with olive oil or had a few nonlocal ingredients in their dishes. Thankfully, I wasn’t alone. During the challenge, I spoke with Adrienne Kasprowicz, who volunteers at the Hollygrove Market and Farm and participated in the ELC on the “ultrastrict” level last year.

lenient.” My level allowed for three vices and three “off-the-wagon” meals a week.) Despite all the extra time and effort it required, being an ultrastrict locavore for 30 days last year changed Kasprowicz’s diet drastically and permanently, she says. She finds herself eating less meat and smaller portions. “We started to practice conscientious eating and took our time to enjoy and protract our meals,” she says. “It made us realize we consume more than we need. My husband lost a lot of weight.” That is one reason I kept doing the challenge: It encouraged me to eat healthy. Molly Kimball, a registered dietitian at Ochsner’s Elmwood Fitness Center, says a locavore diet has benefits because of all of the foods you avoid. “The biggest thing with local food is not what you’re adding but what you’re not including in your diet,” she says. “You don’t have the chips, the cookies and processed packaged foods.” Kimball, who participated in the ELC last year, says the health benefits of eating locally produced foods are linked to the quality of food you consume. Produce that travels a shorter distance to your home spends less time off the vine exposed to the air, heat and light that strips it of vital nutrients, she says. Also, local farmers are more likely to use organic practices, even if they can’t afford to get certified organic by the government. Still in its infancy (the term “locavore” was coined in 2005 and was the 2007 New Oxford American Dictionary’s Word of the Year), the locavore movement is a response to the ongoing dominance of massproduced foods. There’s also the issue of how mass food production has led to genetically modified (GMO) foods. Global food giant Monsanto faces a growing backlash against its GMO products, and Japan and South Korea recently banned imports of U.S. wheat after GMO grains were found in a field in Oregon. Mass-produced foods also have been linked with the decline of healthy snacks consumed in America. However, as Kimball points out, just because something is local doesn’t mean it’s healthy. “A lot of restaurants offer fried oysters and shrimp and grits which may be local but not really that healthy,” she says. “You do have to work a little more to find lean proteins or omega-3-rich fish.” The restrictions on what I could eat were a consistent source of frustration not only for me, but for people around me. Less than

a week into the challenge, my girlfriend said she was sick of me talking about food all the time. If it wasn’t for the fact that I was doing the second-strictest level of the challenge, I would not have been able to go to dinner parties. Kasprowicz had a similar experience last year. “We found it’s an imposition on others,” she says. “Socializing with friends, we’d cook everything so they didn’t have to do it for us.” Entering my third week of the ELC, I threw in the towel on my strictness level. I also excused myself for using olive oil and nonlocal butter as opposed to more expensive pecan oil and local butter. But like Kasprowicz, I found my diet and way of thinking about food had changed. Weekly trips to Hollygrove for the market’s $25 produce box are now part of my routine, as is a weekly trip to the Crescent City Farmers Market. More important, I found the benefits of incorporating more local foods outweighed the drawbacks (a sentiment echoed by Kasprowicz and Kimball). Not only had my diet diversified, but I also gained experience cooking food I never would have prepared otherwise. I slow-roasted a whole duck, made barbecue sauce from scratch and discovered a simple recipe for homemade fruit leather. At one point during the challenge, I sought inspiration from Three Muses chef Daniel Esses, whose restaurant participated with a speckled trout and potato salad dish. The dish, Esses admits, wasn’t 100 percent local. But in his mind, the challenge to eat local is less about strict dietary restrictions and more about recognizing which local ingredients are available. “I want to highlight a few local ingredients, and if you have a few nonlocal ingredients, so be it,” Esses says. For a hardcore locavore, that kind of talk is blasphemy. But it doesn’t take a medical degree to realize it’s not healthy to cut vital foods out of your diet because they aren’t local. As always when it comes to diet, the trick is to find a balance. Most of the stress I experienced trying to make all-local meals would have dissipated if I had remembered something else Stafford told me at the kickoff party. “It’s a personal thing,” he said. “First you start by buying local, and then you start making the food and then you realize, ‘Hey, look what I made.’”



gazpacho By russ Lane


hen I was a new New Orleanian, I considered Creole tomatoes an overhyped local tradition. However, my first visit to the Crescent City Farmers Market resulted in an ample slice of humble tomato pie. Boasting flavors so vivid they do not need salt, Creole tomatoes are now one of my favorite New Orleans staples. The city’s brutal summer heat makes gazpacho my preferred way to use them. Variations on the cold Spanish soup range from cucumber and grape to classic tomato. It’s killer health food: One cup has hefty doses of lycopene and vitamin C and less than 100 calories. The trick is making the dish lively and interesting. In gazpacho’s case, that means ensuring you don’t accidentally serve salsa with a soup spoon.

“WHERE THE UNUSUAL IS COMMONPLACE.” 5101 W. ESPLANADE AVE. METAIRIE, LA 70006 504-885-4956 • 800-222-4956

Here are a few Hints and tricks:

In terms of preparation, gazpacho falls somewhere between vinaigrette and a salsa. The foundation is always oil, vinegar and a binding agent, traditionally day-old bread softened in water and vinegar. This recipe features a creative take: a mix of Champagne and red wine vinegar paired with almond oil. If you want a thicker soup, pulverized toasted almonds or roasted garlic can provide tasty, nutrientdense alternatives to bread.


should accentuate the 3 Everything Creole tomato, not overpower it. If I’m stuck with a blender, I blend all but one tomato, add cucumber and pepper in batches and taste often. Once I’m pleased with the flavor, I add the last tomato, pulse quickly and finish balancing the flavor with oils, vinegars and spices.

Because gazpacho is a quick dish that’s easy to make in bulk, it’s often the last thing prepared when entertaining. So what happens when the tomatoes aren’t as ripe as you thought? Core the fruit or use whole canned tomatoes to boost the flavor. If you have time, store fresh tomatoes in a paper bag with an apple to ripen them.


What &

2-1/2 lbs. tomatoes, cored and coarsely chopped

1 teaspoon hot spanish paprika

1-1/2 seedless cucumbers, peeled and coarsely chopped

dash cinnamon

1 bell pepper (red preferred), coarsely chopped 3 cloves garlic 1/8 cup champagne vinegar 1/8 cup sherry vinegar (or red Wine) 1/3 cup almond oil


salt and freshly ground pepper finely chopped shallot for garnish (optional) shrimp, crab or lobster for garnish (optional) nonfat greek yogurt thinned With skim milk for drizzle (optional)

Prepare vegetables. If you prefer a thicker soup, set aside one or two chopped tomatoes. Crush the remaining tomatoes using a mortar and pestle or a blender. Add half of the pepper and garlic and blend. Add remaining produce to desired taste. Add the final tomato and pulse briefly. Pour into a bowl (preferably one with an airtight lid) and stir in vinegar and spices. Add oil in a slow, steady stream and continue stirring. Cover and refrigerate at least two hours or overnight. Before serving, taste the soup again and add more oil, vinegar and spices as necessary to balance the flavors. There should not be a strong cinnamon taste, but cinnamon should provide depth and temper the paprika’s heat. Add salt and pepper and serve.


recipes and salsas share 2 Gazpacho similar ingredients: bell pepper, garlic and/or shallot, occasionally onion and cucumber. Many recipes call to chop everything, throw it in a blender and pulse the ingredients. I prefer a food mill for a better texture with no seeds, but mortars and pestles or martini shakers make quick substitutes for a blender.

ustin Trosclair recently took home top honors from the Cheesemonger Invitational, an annual competition held in New York that pits more than 50 American cheesemongers against each other in categories ranging from cheese knowledge to pairings to salesmanship. A Marrero native, Trosclair got his start in the business in the cheese department at a local Whole Foods Market. After Hurricane Katrina, he worked at a small goat dairy in Colorado before returning home. He later landed a job at St. James Cheese Company. (5004 Prytania St., 504-899-4737;, where he’s now the manager. Is there another job in the food and drink world you would compare to cheesemongering? Trosclair: It’s comparable to a sommelier in that you’re taking suggestions from people about what they like and using the knowledge you’ve amassed to figure out what they want. I’m from the old school of service, I’m not going to dictate what you’ll be tasting or spend a lot of time on the back story about this farm with three goats, or whatever. But it does help to have a vocabulary for cheese. It can spark the imagination of the customer, and to do that you have to reach beyond just creamy or pungent. Where should people who want to learn about cheese begin? T: I think cheese is the final frontier of specialty foods. It can be daunting, even for chefs. But if you go to a good, responsible cheese shop, they should treat you with respect and help you figure out what you like. From our perspective, as a monger, this is great. People come in and want to taste something good and are looking to you to provide that. We have a responsibility to not be jerks about it. What are you most excited about for the future? T: I’m really happy to be part of the American artisan cheese movement. We’ve had the boom, and now we’re in the part to refine and educate. Our customers don’t always know what they want, it’s not like France or Italy where people walk in and order what they’ve always ordered there. But that’s where good mongering comes in. I’m excited for cheese to become a normal part of everyday life, and that’s only just now starting to happen in the South. — IAN MCNULTY

Dine and dash

Food and festivities are inseparable in Spain, so it’s fitting that feasting is part of San Fermin in Nueva Orleans, the local tribute to the Running of the Bulls in Pamplona, Spain. The local celebration begins Thursday, July 11, with a Spanish wine dinner at the Bourbon Orleans Hotel (717 Orleans Ave., 504-523-2222). The four-course meal features traditional Spanish dishes paired with Rioja wines from the Marques de Caceres winery and live music. Dinner costs $98 and begins at 7 p.m. Friday evening brings El Txupinazo, a pre-party with a happy hour vibe and festival format from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Sugar Mill (1021 Convention Center Blvd.). Admission is free, and there will be a cash bar and Spanish-themed snacks and dishes available for purchase. Chefs Aaron Burgau of Patois, Brian Landry of Borgne, Tory McPhail of Commander’s Palace and Stephen Stryjewski of Cochon will serve dishes including manchego and serrano sandwiches, seared tuna with chorizo marmalade, shellfish paella and albondigas (Spanish meatballs). The party includes live music and performances and event proceeds

benefit the nonprofits Animal Rescue New Orleans and the Louisiana chapter of the Multiple Sclerosis Society. After Saturday morning’s run (see “San Fermin in Nueva Orleans,” p. 52), look for a collection of local food trucks selling dishes around the Sugar Mill, including Empanada Intifada, Peace Love and Snowballs, La Cocinita, Foodie Call, Food Drunk, Rue Chow and Brigade Coffee.

Trends, notes, quirks and quotes from the world of food. “Cheffery and rock ’n’ roll are not as synonymous as many chefs, PR people and agents would these days have you believe. Having a tattoo does not make you Tommy Lee any more than it makes you a Maori tribal elder. We chefs need to calm down a bit. With great TV contracts comes great responsibility. It’s just cooking, after all. My heartfelt wish is that the next foodie fad is less about the chef and more about the customer.” — Luke Mackay, a Londonbased chef and writer, from an op-ed in The Guardian.

A new Mexican restaurant focusing on Mexican street food, showcasing live music and doubling as a gallery for recycled building materials opened last week along the reviving commercial corridor of Central City. Casa Borrega (1719 Oretha Castle Haley Blvd., 504-292-3705) initially will operate under limited summer hours, from 5 p.m. to midnight Thursday through Saturday, and serve a relatively short summer menu that gives a taste of the full program its owners plan to roll out with expanded hours in the fall. Hugo Montero, a local artist and firsttime restaurateur, says the menu springs from casual foods and snacks of Mexico City, the hometown he left when he moved to the U.S. 25 years ago. “It’s a Mexican restaurant, but not in the way people usually think about one,” he says. “I adore Tex-Mex, I respect it, but it’s not Mexican.” The summer menu hews more closely to the taqueria fare that has blossomed at little eateries across the city since Hurricane Katrina, with a roster of corn tortilla tacos, flautas and tortas, which are Mexican sandwiches made on crusty bolillo loaves. A focal point of the menu are antojitos (Spanish for “little cravings”) like gorditas, tostadas and tlacoyos, which are oblong masa cakes filled with beans and topped with cactus and cheese. There’s a full bar specializing in Mexican cocktails. By September, Casa Borrega will be open more days and add breakfast and lunch, Montero says. Montero developed Casa Borrega with his wife Linda Stone, who was a founder of the Green Project, a local nonprofit that recycles building materials and supplies. They renovated a 19th century townhouse for Casa Borrega as a showcase for recycling, with the interior and patio resembling a collage of salvaged doors and windows, vintage light fixtures, repurposed woodwork and other details.

Difficult Men goes behind the scenes of a wave of influential cable TV shows. By Will Coviello


prano strangling the man with his bare hands. It was a perverse family dramameets-cop show tale, but the network suits were afraid the show wouldn’t last long with a murderer for a hero. Show creator and writer David Chase insisted that the show wouldn’t work without Tony killing that rat, and he eventually prevailed. Gandolfini and Chase were far from gangsters in their personal lives, but in writing the show, Chase infused it with his own tortured psychologies. He was always open about relating Tony’s rivalry with his mother Livia to his relationship with his own mother. One of the fascinating focuses in Difficult Men is how similarly the show’s main creator/writers managed their own complex personalities while running very successful series. “It’s interesting to hear about the inner workings (of the creators),” Martin says. “It helped that they’re writers and so they talk about this stuff. It’s part of their writerly personality to examine themselves. Therapy is a huge theme of these shows and these guys’ lives. … The writers’ room becomes this intense therapy session. Everybody is psychoanalyzing the showrunner (the writer/creator in charge, like Chase) because they have become this all-powerful father or mother figure. It’s designed for everyone’s worst neurosis to come out.” TV writing isn’t a literary endeavor, and almost all the writers discussed were as prolific as they were dictatorial. Chase sometimes fired writers on the heels of their best work. While there are egotistical battles involved in the art of any of these shows, TV also is a business with a lot of money at stake. All the showrunners have to balance being auteurs with being managers. “It’s a really, really hard job,” Martin says. “It’s being a CEO and an artist simultaneously. It requires a sense of interior confidence and a sense of mission and vision that most people don’t possess. That’s

what ties them Edie Falco and James Gandolfini starred in all together. HBO’s influential series The Sopranos. You don’t have PHOTO COurTESY Of HBO to be an asshole. You have to be really Brett Martin reads ambitious. And JULY from Difficult Men you have to be 5:30 p.m.-7 p.m. Thursday a boss.” On the Garden District Book Shop, business side, 2727 Prytania St. these shows (504) 895-2266 flourished in a new niche — most were on subscription cable. HBO got into creating original programming to establish a brand, and to give viewers a reason to subscribe and stay subscribed. Merely good ratings could keep a show on network TV, but cable channels had to stand out in another way to make sure they got carried by pay-TV providers. At its best, The Sopranos drew half the viewers of popular network shows, but it became influential in a way none of those shows ever came close to approximating. “The biggest thing is you don’t need one-third of America to watch you,” Martin says. “That’s the largest single business component of this. Once you don’t need to address the lowest common denominator, you have tremendous ability to do good work.”


Gambit > > JULY 9 > 2013

ollowing the death of James Gandolfini on June 19, GQ writer Brett Martin wrote on the magazine’s website, “If and when I have grandchildren, I will tell them that I saw Michael Jordan play basketball, Jacques Pepin make an omelet and James Gandolfini act.” Martin watched Gandolfini on set during the filming of the final season of The Sopranos, and he interviewed Gandolfini at the very end of production. The actor who had animated the volatile Tony Soprano hadn’t been eager to talk to him. “Once we sat down, his pose was somehow, ‘I have nothing to say. I am just this big dumb guy from New Jersey,’” Martin says via phone from his Bywater home. “He very quickly gave lie to that as he started to talk. He wasn’t remotely interested in talking about craft or even really the character, but it was clear that he understood it very deeply. … He wasn’t the kind of actor who believed in talking about the work in that way.” With its tortured and violent antihero, who at times meted out death sentences with his bare hands in the HBO series about a New Jersey Mafia family, The Sopranos ushered in the “Third Golden Age” of TV. That’s the argument Martin makes in his new book Difficult Men (Penguin), a behind-the-scenes chronicle of a wave of high-quality cable TV shows including David Simon’s The Wire, Mad Men, Deadwood and Breaking Bad. Each show was built around an antihero — some violent like Soprano, some mysterious like Mad Men’s Don Draper. They were often bad spouses and poor parents, and sometimes psychologically distraught, but audiences were fascinated by them. The draw of reading about Gandolfini and other on-screen personalities may provide the initial spark of interest, but the creators of the shows are as brilliant and troubled as their protagonists, and the book title refers to both. It briefly mentions two series focused on women: Sex and the City and Girls. Difficult Men has the page-turning allure of true crime stories as it follows the plots and egos involved in some of the most acclaimed shows of the past 15 years. It also puts a rare period of converging artistic and commercial success in perspective. The Sopranos’ Emmy-winning, first-season episode “College” is thoroughly discussed and referred to often in Difficult Men. In it, Tony Soprano takes his daughter Meadow to tour a college in Maine, where he sees a “rat,” a mobster-turned-informant, whom he feels obligated to kill for his transgressions. Network executives originally objected to a scene of So-

Enter the lightweights: Bicoastal rookies Cayucas (pictured) and Brazos pose no threat to unmask Daft Punk’s hostile takeover of pop music, but their respective debut albums are a matching pair of post-vacation seashell stowaways, the kind of sunbathing, daydreaming discoveries that could only emerge from the sleepy season. Named for the tiny beach-resort town 200 miles up Route 1 from Zach Yudin’s base camp in Santa Monica, Calif., “Cayucos” — the pseudo-titular track that begins Cayucas’ Bigfoot (Secretly Canadian) — mixes the subtropical sway and faded edges of New Orleans’ Generationals with the ephemerality of a sand castle at low tide; “High School Lover” showcases Richard Swift’s patchwork production, abandoning Beck’s Odelay on a deserted island; and “Will ‘The Thrill’” simultaneously gussies up and dresses down Vampire Weekend. Where Bigfoot has a decidedly escapist bent, Brazos’ Saltwater (Dead Oceans) is more concerned with finding yourself on the return. Martin Crane’s one-man, Austin, Texas, band is now a Brooklyn-based trio, and here he feels out his new sonic expanses, from Floating Action floaters (“Charm”) to the Shins’ ganglier jangles (“One Note Pillow”). “I feel summer sweeping out,” Crane sings in one of his more direct moments. It’s a gentle reminder that the days only get shorter from here. Eugene opens. Tickets $10. — NOAH BONAPARTE PAIS

The Iran Job


Though it seems intended to evoke a political thriller, the title of this documentary about journeyman basketball player Kevin Sheppard’s time plying his trade in Iran actually suits the film perfectly. That’s because the story told by The Iran Job gradually becomes one of acquired sociopolitical awareness in a time and place that demands it of both citizens and visitors. Although talented, Sheppard didn’t quite have what it takes to play at the highest professional level in the U.S., so his basketball career took him to China, Brazil, Israel and, finally, Iran. He departed for the troubled Islamic nation over the protests of family and friends concerned for his safety. What Sheppard found, at least initially, was “the worst basketball I’d ever seen in my life.” Named captain of a very young startup professional team, he finds himself with the difficult task of helping coach the ragtag crew despite an intractable language barrier. Can the team make the playoffs as required by the owner who’s paying Sheppard double the usual rate? The film weaves together a compelling sports story with a larger tale of cultural turmoil and transition to entertaining effect. Sheppard’s real journey begins when he befriends a woman working in the physical therapy clinic he visits following a minor injury. She and two of her friends defy Iranian law by visiting Sheppard and his roommate at their apartment, and they repeatedly take that risk just to engage in another illicit activity: open conversation about their lives. Shot mostly in 2009, the film is set amid the rise of the reformist Green Movement in Iran, which helped inspire sweeping changes in the Middle East in the form of the Arab Spring. The three women make those larger struggles personal, transforming The Iran Job into an important document in an era where there’s always someone beating the drum for another war. — KEN KORMAN

When she died in 2010 at the age of 63, Canadian singer/ songwriter Kate McGarrigle wasn’t exactly a household name. But her influence is felt widely among those who practice songcraft. She recorded 10 albums with her sister Anna McGarrigle, and her son Rufus Wainwright and daughter Martha Wainwright currently enjoy successful musical careers of their own. Sing Me the Songs That Say I Love You documents a tribute concert for which McGarrigle’s extended family and friends gathered at New York City’s Town Hall. The film intercuts family interviews, photographs and home movies to paint an impressionistic portrait of McGarrigle, an artist whose work deserves a wider audience. Emmylou Harris, Antony Hegarty (of Antony and the Johnsons) and talented newcomer Krystal Warren are among those interpreting songs from all phases of McGarrigle’s career, including several that were never recorded or performed publicly. But it’s Martha, and especially Rufus, who carry the torch here, repeatedly matching their mother’s artistry with stirring performances that elevate the film above its sometimes too-somber setting. — KEN KORMAN

Gambit > > JULY 9 > 2013

In the 70-year journey that has taken him from the New Orleans housing project where he grew up to having his work exhibited in some of the more hallowed halls of the New York art world and back to New Orleans again, Willie Birch has always been outspoken. Even so, his current Arthur Roger Gallery show can seem very quiet. Unlike his earlier 7th Ward street scenes, there are no second lines, stoop sitters or funerals in these big black-andwhite works on paper, only stark, empty vistas where ragged buildings and rickety fences initially suggest a social realist view of his hardscrabble neighborhood. But like a back street Pompeii, these scarred, unpopulated vistas have their own tales to tell, and if they lack local charm in the usual sense, they are not without dignity. Rendered with eloquent simplicity, they reveal through their subtle luminosity a resonant depth of presence. “It is what it is,” they seem to say, but like the area’s residents, there is clearly more to them than what is seen on the surface. More street scenes appear in Eudora Welty’s photographs at the Ogden Museum. Famous for her fiction, she was a young writer and photographer when she went to work for the WPA during the dark days of the Great Depression. She excelled in bringing a whimsical narrative sensibility to photographs of her native Mississippi’s city streets and rural byways as we see in Home Before Dark (pictured). this storytelling quality is reinforced by excerpts from her writings on the walls, so rather than revealing vast impersonal forces, Welty takes us into her subjects’ everyday lives. Like her stories, her photographs leave us feeling almost as if we know the cast of characters. the museum hosts a panel discussion and walk-through of the exhibit from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, July 13. — D.

StAGE LISTINGS REVIEW The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) No one picks up Cliffs Notes for the pleasure of reading, but The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged), currently running at the New Orleans Shakespeare Festival at Tulane PHOTO By JOHN BARROIS University, shows that The Complete Works of encapsulation can be THRU wildly amusing. The William Shakespeare (abridged) JULY premise of the play is 7:30 p.m. Tue.-Wed. and Sun. to gloss all of ShakeTulane University, Dixon Hall speare’s plays in two hours. While it names all of Lab Theatre, (504) 865-5106 them, it only dwells on plays, scenes and characters ripe for parody or a raunchy bit. The comedy is as clever as it is bawdy, and it’s entertaining whether one appreciates all the erudite references and jokes about theatrical conventions, or whether one comes to it tabula rasa. The play was created by the Reduced Shakespeare Company and originally presented at the 1987 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. It calls for the actors to bulldoze the fourth wall and talk to the audience constantly — and at times enlist members to play parts. At Tulane, Andrew Vaught, Brendan Bowen and Clint Johnson give the show a fast and furious whirl. After an introduction full of local references, the trio launches into Romeo and Juliet. It’s one of the highlights, introducing the overall show’s heavy reliance on crossdressing and homoerotic anxiety for repeated laughs, here between Romeo (Vaught) and Juliet (Johnson), but also between Juliet and Bowen, whom she mounted as an improvised balcony. Titus Andronicus follows, and the bloodbath is imagined as a cooking show. The script allows for ample timely and local references. Othello, performed as a rap song, includes a reference to celebrity chef Paula Deen. Midway through Act 1, all the comedies are thrown into a blender and read as a combined story, an absurdist tale of numerous siblings separated at birth, mistaken identities and characters washed up on unfamiliar shores. The piece works much better when parodying famous scenes and characters, as in the lightning-quick, extremely essentialist Macbeth. Act 2 is devoted to Hamlet, presented through the lens of various psychological analyses of the work. Condensing it to overwrought vignettes is hilarious, and then there’s a detour into chaos as the entire audience assumes supporting roles in a scene focused on Ophelia. The Complete Works can equally please those who love Shakespeare and those who dread serious theater. Under Carl Walker’s direction, this production is nimble, lighthearted and at times silly. Vaught, Bowen and Johnson revel in scenes of mock gravitas and in clownlike bits. It’s a fun show that proves less can be much, much more. — WILL COVIELLO
