Coolinary at SoBou!

NEW ORLEANS - These dishes are anything but ordinary, just South of Bourbon Street!

Juan Carlos Gonzalez is the Executive Chef at SoBou Restaurant and his Coolinary dishes are here to keep you cool! "It’s in the middle of summer it’s nice and hot, we’re trying to do some COOLinary stuff."

He says one entree is the best of all, Fried Chicken and Watermelon Salad, "Come on we're in New Orleans man, in the heart of the French Quarter, who doesn’t like fried chicken, you know?" It's topped with blue cheese and a honey citrus vinaigrette.

SoBou is a must try for Coolinary this year - they are doing lunch, dinner, and brunch!
