Show 15, February 2, 2013: Ti Adelaide Martin, New Orleans restaurateur, co-owner of Commander’s Palace, Café Adelaide and the Swizzle Stick Bar, and SoBou

Ti Adelaide MartinTi is a member of the legendary Brennan Family who represent true restaurant royalty in New Orleans. They know genuine hospitality!

With the Super Bowl coming tomorrow Ti commented on the craziness of the season. They are calling it Super Gras because after the big game it’s the continuation of Mardi Gras season leading up to Fat Tuesday, February 12th

Commander’s Palace is especially popular with powerful, well-connected  locals but all are welcome. Their popular Sunday Jazz Brunch is now also done on Saturdays. The owner of the New Orleans Saints is a regular at Commander’s

Ti’s newest project is SoBou (South of Bourbon Street) in the French Quarter adjacent to the W French Quarter.

It’s a casual spot for inspired small plates and signature cocktails. Juan Carlos Gonzalez is the executive chef but Commander’s exec, Tory McPhail, collaborated on the initial menu.

One of the most original features is the four-seat “bar chef’s table” at one end of the bar. Here prix-fixe menus are expertly matched with exotic cocktails with the chef and master bartender working right in front of you. That’s an evening’s entertainment!
