A slice of fame: Hurricane Katrina-relocated crawfish bread lands Houston on CNN
CNN is traveling the country to find unique stories about modern life in a series called Defining America, and the network's been spending plenty of time in Texas. From barbecue in Giddings to German bakeries in New Braunfels, nothing defines Texas like food, so it makes sense that an entrepreneur and restaurateur who brought a slice of New Orleans to town after Hurricane Katrina represents Houston.
Lakesha Reed opened Beaucoup Bar & Grill in 2006 to fill what she said was a void of authentic New Orleans-style Cajun cuisine, serving po'boys, gumbo and a best-selling crawfish bread that gets plenty of screen time.
"I'm not classically trained as a chef, I'm just grandma-trained," Reed says.
