When pink is still well done



  • Courtesy NOLA Goes Pink

It’s no coincidence if you start seeing more pink around New Orleans restaurants starting next week. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and as part of the education effort New Orleans restaurants are participating in NOLA Goes Pink. For this annual campaign, chefs don pink coats and either add or designate a healthy menu item to feature for the month, pledging to contribute 10 percent of sales from that dish to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure, New Orleans, the local branch of the national breast cancer foundation. Look for the foundation’s trademark pink ribbon on menus and service staff uniforms.

NOLA Goes Pink was created by Char Thian, director of public relations for the local Ritz-Carlton Hotel, and she has recruited dozens of local restaurants, from the hotel’s own M Bistro and its Davenport Lounge to Bayona to the Reginelli’s Pizzeria chain to the food truck Taceaux Loceaux.
