Meat Me at Toups
Welcome Back Faithful Listeners!
One of the greatest parts of doing this show is getting the chance to sit down and talk with people that I have met but really don't know too well. It's even better when the people you get to chat with are as interesting as our guests this week: Isaac and Amanda Toups.
Isaac and Amanda are Louisiana natives who followed their passion for food and hospitality by opening the magnificent Toups' Meatery in the Mid-City neighborhood of New Orleans.
Since opening, their flagship restaurant has received heaps of well deserved acclaim and adulation. They've earned several James Beard nominations, and Isaac to competed on the television show Top Chef, where he was a finalist and won fan-favorite.
With the success from all of these endeavors, Amanda and Isaac have now been able to open a second restaurant: Toups South, located in the Southern Food and Beverage Museum in Central City.
I'm a bit of a fanboy, admittedly. In my opinion, both of their restaurants rank as some of the best in the city. And aside from that, Amanda and Isaac are just cool and hilarious people.
Anywho, check it out and thanks for tuning in!
