This Thursday, August 27, Café Adelaide is hosting a “Win-Win” dinner with Eat Fit NOLA, where guests will enjoy 5 courses of good-for-you dishes, along with a cocktail pairing by Cathead Vodka.


At Café Adelaide, Chef Carl Schaubhut puts a big focus on being able to eat, and drink, to enjoy yourself without worrying about over-indulging. He is especially passionate about bringing healthy options into his cooking, having just recently dealt with cancer this past year. Through his recovery, he is altering his way of dining and hopes to share his new ways with his guests at Café Adelaide.
