Does anyone remember Turci's?

I was born and raised in New Orleans. I am now 47. I grew up going to a restaurant almost weekly with my family called Turci's. It was down in the Quarter, very small and quaint. It was owned by a mother and daughter. The mother was completely blind, and in her 80's and would sit back in that kitchen every night and make sure the cooks were doing it all the right way. (All the pasta was from scratch and everything was out of this world!)The daughter ran the dining room, and she only had use of one arm. They had a Veal Ravioli with Butter, Cheese and Parsley that was TO DIE FOR!!!!!!!!!!!! I have tried repeatedly to try and replicate this recipe to no avail. I have thought about trying to contact Emeril, as he is from that era, but I am afraid my letter would get tossed. Does ANYONE remember this restaurant? Anyone have a killer Veal ravioli recipe that melts in your mouth.
