    Barryg,

    I created Catahoula with the help of my sous chef and
    fiance. We worked very hard at giving Philly a taste
    of Louisiana. Since the three of us are no longer with
    the restaurant i can only presume that it will be a
    matter of time before catahoula fades into the sunset.
    The heart and soul of the place is gone and there isnt
    anyone left in the place that has any true understanding
    of Louisiana food and culture
