The Little Jewel of New Orleans opens in Los Angeles’ Chinatown


"I understand that Southern is in vogue right now, but my grandmother would laugh at anything served in a Mason jar that costs $14."

— Marcus Christiana-Beniger in a Los Angeles Times story about his grocery and deli The Little Jewel of New Orleans, which opened recently in Los Angeles' Chinatown. The store will use Leidenheimer bread for po-boys (stuffed with fried shrimp, oysters and cochon de lait) and Blue Plate mayonnaise, but meats including boudin and tasso will be made in-house. He'll make cochon de lait in the smoker used by the previous tenant, Hoy King, to smoke ducks.
