NOLA Fashion Council brings Baubles and Bloggers to Brunch
If you usually can’t afford to dine at the Ste. Marie, bring yourself to the CBD tomorrow for the Nola Fashion Council Brunch. There will be a $30 fixed menu, but the real steal is the 25cent mimosas. You can use the money you save on the trunk show, but more importantly, a portion of the restaurant’s proceeds will go towards local up and coming fashion designers. NoDef spoke with Andi Eaton of the Nola Fashion Council about how the brunch idea came to be.

Cocktail of the Week: Ste. Marie: The 'Garbo'
CBD - Formerly known as the Faubourg Ste. Marie, today’s Central Business District houses new establishments that are turning this skyscraper-heavy downtown locale into a bustling center of food and drink. Among the newest to stake its claim over territoire du Poydras is Ste. Marie, a restaurant owned by Leon and Pierre Touzet (of Patois fame) and Robert LeBlanc of LRG, with chef Chris Foster of NYC’s Bar American.
