On a cool day in October, a baby boy was born to a banker mom and police
officer dad in the French Quarter. What a neat place to grow up - so
filled with rich tradition that one would not learn to appreciate until
they would leave it.
At 17, that tall, dark, handsome young
Italian boy joined the Coast Guard. Off he went to Boston,
Massachusetts, before landing in south St. Louis.
Thank the Lord for that destination. There was a local girl, just across the river, whose life was about to change forever...
Born into a restaurateur family, you can guess what she was doing from
the time she was old enough to see over the counter. Escaping work for a
few years, she graduated from the University of Illinois at
Springfield, only to return to do what the blood flowing through her
veins told her to do. Micki spent many years managing restaurants across
the metro east. This is how the two met.
The New Orleans boy
made his move on the local girl...he, wanting to talk about their love of
cooking. The rest is history and the future is Who Dat's Southern Food.
Chris and Micki, along with their three children, are very proud to be
living their dream in your town. They are excited to bring their family
traditions to you, while you teach them about yours.
