I am so sad to have heard the rumor that the Santa Fe Cafe on Frenchmen is closed. I am heading back to the Crescent City for a visit next month and to this day am raving about the amazing seafood nachos I had there once ten years ago at the Santa Fe, with crawfish and crabmeat on them, possibly the most delicious thing I've ever eaten, an unexpected treasure. So good, it could bring tears to your nacho-lovin' eyes. Does anybody else down there serve that particular combo, and do it well? Or are the folks from Santa Fe restauranteering somewhere else now? Oh, the fallout from Katrina, so many losses... Tell me the rumor I heard is not true.
Thanks for your locally-savvy input!
