Years back we got a good laugh out of our waitress at Jack Dempsey’s when we asked if the restaurant was named after the old New Orleans-based crime reporter.
“Honey, you sure do know New Orleans, everybody thinks that we named this place after the boxer”
Mr Dempsey, the reporter, retired in ’81 after four decades in the game but our New Orleans roots extend well past the eighties.
We know and love this city.
We go to Jack Dempsey’s for the finest macaroni and cheese in New Orleans. They also have a deft hand with the fryers as they put out some of the best fried, grease-free, seafood in town.
If y’all know a better source for mac and cheese let us know.
