Come by yourself or with friends. This will be a safe space for people of all walks and genders! Any violation of space will NOT be permitted! Fritai will have the snack so come hungry. We will also have a full bar! No cover! Share and tell a friend! The Culture: We are a discussion group focused on gender equality. Meeting on the first Tuesday of every month, our goal is bring male conversations on women’s rights, masculinity and gender equality to their comfort zones.
Hey yall! Ill be riding out the storm on very high ground ready to help if anyone needs it! I hope yall will be safe, stock up and take this seriously. Lets look out for our brothers and sisters as we hope for the best but prepare for the worst! #findyourlight
Tonight is the last night for our #TropiPapi pop-up!! Come by and vibe with us. 1749 Poydras! Right in front of the Superdome!!!
Talks, pop-ups, festivals, parties n’ shit... #findyourlight #theculture #TropiPapi #The54th @fritainola
When IG is broken....
It’s the first Tuesday y’all! You know what that means!!!! Male talks at @fritainola !! Tell your brothers!
Shit ive learned: Loving your community is not just regarding my cis community. It is respecting her community. It is concerning the queer community. It is appreciating the unappreciated. It is an affection that’s all inclusive. #findyourlight
“Secured the blueberry bag.” Also, lets talk about how good I look against the sun! #findyourlight
To be honest, cooking Haitian food can be very discouraging at times. About 60% of Haitians who come to @fritainola feel like our food is not authentic enough due to having non-traditional dishes like the Fritai or vegan items. Ohh and lets get into their reaction to not having an all Haitian staff in a city with so little Haitians. Trust me, i would hire Haitians if i could; but also i would not due to having such an amazing group of people. I also would never keep my menu 100% authentic. I am a creative Chef. I need room to play. Little do they realize we are the longest standing Haitian "restaurant" in the city since 🤷🏿♂️. So how about you just STFU and have an award winning #Fritai? 💁🏿♂️💁🏿♂️💁🏿♂️ Thank you for your support everyone! #findyourlight
In true honesty traversing life while balancing a socially aware mindset and capitalistic qualities ain’t no joke... #findyourlight s/o to @nola_boricua for the fly bandana!
That little apartment in the projects was my castle &... ahhh screw that! lets talk about the plastic covered couches. Who had them?! C. 1993
Hello brothers & sisters! We invite you to the third installment of The Culture talks. In this specific edition called Culture of Communication, we will explore perspectives, egos and understanding amongst genders. We invite ALL GENDERS to attend and speak freely. Please bring an open mind, a friend and leave the negative energy at home.
Lets talk about vulnerability. #findyourlight
What yall doing today? I hope yall start your day off right! How about @fritainola ’s New Orleanian Omelette topped with crawfish!
I love seeing people i know at #jazzfest. Its always love! Like the “i hate everyone here but you” Love.
Today! We’re having our second edition of talks! Come by and tell your brothers!
You know, i could say some deep shit but I’m just mad everyone let me go through the whole day with that squiggly lint on my shoulder... 😤😐😊
Yesterday i sat down with my tribe. We spoke of how culture intertwines with creation. How our community upholds tradition.... And how good my mussels were!! 🙏🏿🙏🏿🙏🏿 @godaddy
“Its about waking up everyday with a goal. its the hard work that runs synonymously with success. Its about realizing our advancements and understanding the lengths we will have to go to achieve greater. It’s about rewiring...”
Tomorrow! Thank you sisters for the resources & support! Its time men have these convos with each other. Bring your brothers, eyes, ears and thoughts!
Hearing The Marathon album changed how i stepped! He taught me about the “Grind,” the love, the hate and so much more. This pillar was the most influential artist in my life. We must not let this man’s words go unheard. And we must keep asking why!!! Rest easy Nip.
This crabby, creamy, cheesy thing has been paying my bill for almost 3 years now!!! 🤭🤭🤭 #findyourmac
I think i finally recovered. Also only 350 days until the next Mardi Gras! #mardigras2019 #findyourlight
99% of the times i have said “#Findyourlight” it was really for the sake of finding the light in myself(i always need it ). Meditating outdoor today i screamed out “Moma i made it to 30!” And i could not stop crying! Now i think i have realized something. I have truly found myself. I have found a lane that is being paved by me, and with the help of my community. I have grounded myself. I have found my community, rich with people i love so dearly. There is work todo but i am truly happy and grateful of who i am now. Thank you 📸: @jccotto
I WILL NOT BE WORKING! I will be shaking my ass to #Carimi and eating doubles all night! FWM and help me not freak out about turning old... I mean 30!!!! 💁🏿♂️💁🏿♂️💁🏿♂️
From your prospective ive done a lot. From mine, i’ve done so little! Its what drives me but its also a curse! #neverstop #findyourlight
That morning on my way from the farmer market i cracked my rim, broke my bolts, and nearly fucked the rotor. I drove around NOLA for about 10 miles at 15 mph cause i had shit to do and no time for the shop. Honestly, this could’ve stressed me out, but i knew what was to come... #findyourlight
Pulls up: Hey, hey you! I have 6 Supper Club tickets left, do you want one?! No?!.. well. Pulls off #marketsupperclub #fritai# #plantbased #findyourlight
I consider this mango sauce on a Fritai action as ICONIC. #fritaisandwich
I finally got my father to New Orleans! He called it “Jacmel 2.0!” I get alll my dad jokes from him!
I never just came to New Orleans to live but also to be a part of the community and provide if possible. It’s hard to determine if the beauty of the city does outweigh its problems. But on some real shit i saw one hungry nigga come in a room and share his “Five Guys” cheeseburgers with 3 other hungry people. With no issue! That is humbling. I take that mindset in everything I do from my hiring methods to how i serve my food. To simply provide an opportunity to eat... Figuratively and literally 📸: @jccotto
I will be showcasing a six-course, plant-based menu along with drink pairings for The Market’s Supper Club’s third dinner. I will be presenting a dinner celebrating the depth and breadth of flavors and textures often overlooked in plant-based cooking. Appealing to vegans, vegetarians and carnivores-alike, We hope that guests will enjoy a menu that encourages a fresh perspective on plant-based cooking. @themayhaw 's Sophie Burton will offer a custom pairing menu of specialty cocktails and wine. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For tickets, menu, and more information, visit the link in our bio. We can't wait to share our table with you.
My face when they come to my HAITIAN spot and ask for curry goat or some other english colonized island dish... 🙅🏿♂️ 📸: @mikegrn
None of them are as innocent as they look, but i love them all!!
Please tell everyone who is in need of a plate! Come by no matter who you are!! Ill be giving a hand!
I have so many exciting culinary/art adventures that i can’t wait to share with y’all! Stay tuned!
Jamaica,Trinidad and Haiti all in one picture! Btw Johnny’s also a carpenter so don’t judge his shirt!
The sauce in solid form.
This was my first day in Petionville. Before this i got into an argument with a guy who tried to sell me wipers. This dude just put them on my rental car not asking and told me a price. 🤔 I guess getting really pissed off about someone touching your car is american. Cause i was going off and my fams were laughing. Im not humble.
